I used your recipe today and so far my house smells great! My question is after you freeze the stock and you want to use it. Can you take it from the freezer and like microwave it to thaw or do I need to set it out for it to thaw? Just wondering.
If you don’t have a problem with microwaving your food I would definitely defrost it in the microwave. Just remember to make sure it is in a microwave safe container before defrosting.
I usually store my stock, made from a whole chicken in a crock pot, in recycled yogurt containers which I would not microwave.
Depending on which recipes you are using with your chicken stock I would freeze the stock in pre-measured amounts. This way you are only thawing what you need.
Another tip would be to freeze your homemade chicken stock in ice cube trays and then once they are frozen store them in freezer bags. You could take out as many cubes as you needed for a recipe and the rest would stay frozen.
I would definitely not reheat then freeze the broth again.
If you aren’t making your own chicken broth you should! It is healthier than store bought and cheaper too.
