-Roasting Bones and Mirepoix-
Place the chicken carcasses and bones in a roasting pan and roast in 450° oven for about 1-1.5 hours or until they are a rich golden brown. Remove the roasted bones, and place mirepoix in the roasting pan, give it a good stir to coat with the fat rendered from the bones, and place back in the oven until golden brown, (about 45-50 minutes).
Place bones in an appropriate sized, heavy bottom stockpot.
Fill the stockpot with enough cold water to cover the bones by 2-3”. Cold water is used because some of the proteins contained in the bones will not dissolve in hot water. This may cause your stock be less flavorful and cloudy.
Add your sachet.
Heat stock on medium heat and bring to a simmer. Allowing the stock to heat slowly will help to dissolve certain proteins and will make your stock more flavorful and clear.
Once the stock begins to simmer, reduce heat to low/med-low to maintain a slow simmer. Do not allow stock to boil or it will become cloudy and emulsify the remaining fat from the bones.
Simmer for 4-6 hours, skimming with a ladle as necessary.
After the stock is finished, pour through a strainer lined with cheesecloth. Discard bones, mirepoix and sachet leaving you with only the pure chicken stock.
Mix a little tomato paste in with the mirepoix for added body and flavor at the ratio of 4 ounces per pound of mirepoix.
If you are not planning on using the chicken stock in the next five days, reduce strained chicken stock by 3/4s, pour into ice cube trays and freeze. Once the cubes are frozen, remove from ice trays, place in a plastic zip bag, and store in freezer for up to 3 months.
Your concentrated chicken stock ice cubes can be used to fortify a sauce, add flavor to soups, or make a pan sauce a la minute.
