Canning Chicken Stock

I had a small chicken carcass from our meals this week so I put it in a small stockpot along with 3 carrots and 2 stalks of celery that were in the fridge, covered with water, and simmered it most of yesterday.  Last night I strained into a bowl and put it in the fridge.  This morning I skimmed off the fat and jarred it up and pressure canned it.  It smells & tastes so great!

  1. Hi, I am wondering if you HAVE to pressure can this. Can't you just do a waterbath??

  2. Yes, to be processed correctly it need to be pressure canned.
