Chicken Broth with IP

So now that I’m back to work full-time I’m trying to come up with ways to save even more time in the kitchen. I’ve actually never made chicken broth just to save or freeze for later. I always ended up cooking the bones and using it immediately for a dish. The other night while putting …
