meal that night. Anyway, let that sit overnight on low in a crock pot. Supposedly you can let it sit for up to a week. I dislike many things on my counter almost as much a J, so 24 hours was enough for us. I let it cool, put it in left over canning jars from my freezer jam experiment (which went perfectly and tastes amazing), and froze them. I have heard you can freeze the stock in ice cube trays and then in ziploc bags. But, any time I can use glass or metal instead of plastic, I do. I ended up draining it twice-I didn't think of lining my steamer bowl (not strainer!-haha) with cheese cloth until after the first pour.
Also, a quick search online and it seems I did make broth...bone broth. Check out the differences here.
