|How can something so benign-looking taste so good?|
We sprinkle a little white pepper and vegetable salt on top just before we serve it.
Mrs HM and I have rediscovered the 'yum'ness of chicken broth. Not only is it delicious but it is also nourishing and frugal.
|Left over chicken carcasses after feeding the hoards.|
Don't throw them out!
Making the broth is as simple as popping two roasted chicken carcasses (after carving off the meat for another meal), two chopped up sweet carrots and two chopped up red onions into a boiler, covering with water, bringing to the boil then simmering for about three hours. You know its done when the chicken carcasses have completely disintegrated and the bones are softish. Strain into a container and freeze in desired portion sizes for future use.
|Cooking away steadily|
When the urge hits us to have chicken broth we simply defrost the amount we need, chop up a little capsicum, spring onion and tomato and add it to the defrosted broth then bring to the boil and serve. We sprinkle just a little white pepper and vegetable salt on top.
It does not look fancy, but oh boy, it is tasty. Nourishing, simple, tasty comfort food at its best.
The cost is only about $1 each per serve. We consider this a filling meal.
Take care folks and stay nice.
