Fowl Frugality

I've never been a meat eater and I recently gave up chicken, but every now and then I get a craving for homemade chicken soup. I take this to mean my body needs protein, so I indulge. This time, instead of throwing away all the bones, skin and yucky parts, I tossed it together with carrot peels, celery heels and salt to make broth.

It was a teeny bit messy as I strained it twice, then poured it through cheesecloth. But now I've got several quarts in the freezer ready to go!
