I'm sure this isn't a new idea to lots of you in this forum but I started making stock in the crock pot and it's amazingly yummy and easy as could be - I love it! I'd love to hear some of your crock pot stock recipes or techniques. Thanks!

I've never made stock in a crock pot and I too would be interested in hearing recipes/techniques for doing this.

I use the crockpot all the time. I dump in two or three baked chicken carcasses that I've bashed with the kitchen hammer and any neck bones or fatty bits I may have saved. I also put in some veggies that are past the freshy mark... not rotten but wilted or sad looking. Usually carrots, onion, turnip, parsnip. Add a few peppercorns and half a real lemon, rind and all. Barely cover with water... simmer 16 hours or so. I generally load this up first thing one morning and strain it just before bed that evening... as late as possible. Once chilled, generally the next morning, I scrape off the fat and what's left is jelly like bone broth. Yum.

Yea, mind is similar to Philomom. 

 

I roast one chicken each week. The picked clean bones go in a crock pot with some onion, carrot, celery. This last one I made with tomato and it was YUMMY!  I leave mine on low for 24 hours, careful not to stir it too much. The strained/fat skimmed broth is very flavorful, full of color and is so good. I have even made a second batch with the same bones -- refilled the pot again and let simmer for another 24 hours. Even that second batch was gelatinous and yummy. 

 

I'm just so thrilled to get such a substantial and yummy broth from something that often gets thrown away. I actually usually do make broth, even before discovering this method but it wasn't nearly as good and I never had the full flavor and nutrients (I imagine) I'm getting from the crock pot method.
