Cool the stock
Let the stock cool on the hob, then refrigerate it overnight.
After the stock has chilled, you can skim off the remaining fat with a large spoon—just watch those calories roll off! Chilled stock wobbles like a bowl of jelly, but it will liquefy once you heat it up.
How long does stock keep?
Homemade chicken stock keeps in the fridge for up to three days. You can also freeze stock in small batches to use later in your favourite recipes.
