Generally I like to freeze chicken broth in cubes but as I run out of freezer space it’s time to come up with another solution! Once you have the broth made, canning chicken stock is very easy.
First you will have to make your your broth. I made mine up in the crockpot and then cooked then bones a second time to get extra gelatin from them. I ended up with a gallon from one chicken. Pour the broth into jars, clean and put their lids on. (For step by step picture instructions you can check out this post.)
Pressure can the broth at 10 pounds of pressure for 90 minutes. Make sure you don’t touch the canner until the pressure gauge is completely down (several hours). That’s it!
My gallon of broth made 10 pints of broth, that’s like 10 meals for our family! Now if you’d rather have a complete meal you will want to read my post on canning chicken!
I buy most of our chicken in bulk from Zaycon Fresh. If you are looking for a great source for bulk chicken and other meats (for a great price!), I highly recommend that you check them out. See my review of Zaycon here and find the latest Zaycon Fresh coupons here.
