Soup Socks - The Easy Way to Make Stock!

Making stock...Made easy!
Have you been curious about making your own stock but a little apprehensive about the whole process?  Maybe you read my post a few months ago about making chicken stock and were intrigued but you haven't attempted it yet? I know I was a little nervous in the beginning! I recently came across Soup Socks, and whether you're a novice or experienced stock-maker, this things are amazing! (And no, I'm not being paid to promote these at all, I honestly just really like them.)

I bought mine on Amazon, but I've also seen them for sale at some local grocery stores. Each pack comes with three socks, and you only need to use one per pot. This is as simple as it gets, folks!

Into the pot it goes!
- Put all ingredients (veggies, herbs, chicken, beef bones, whatever!) into the sock.
- Tie sock in a knot
- Put in pot, cover with water.
- Bring to a boil, then simmer, partially covered, for 4-6 hours.
- When broth has reached your desired taste, remove sock and squeeze out the liquid. (You can also add some sea salt or apple cider vinegar to pump up the flavor.)
- Discard sock and it's contents, and your stock is ready!

You can enjoy the broth as it is, or use it in any recipe that calls for stock. I think you'll find it to be much more delicious than the pre-made stuff!
