1 whole chicken, giblets removed

9 cups of filtered water

Lower the heat to simmer and cook for 1 hour 10 minutes untill the chicken is cooked through.

Remove the chicken and reserve for later use.

Pour the stock into the pot with the ginger through a strainer and simmer for 10 more minutes.

Allow the stock to cool.

The fat will rise to the top and can be skimmed off before cooking.

 

*You can use veal with this recipe and make a beautiful veal stock. Remove the ginger, lemon zest, olive oil, and chicken and replace with veal and 5 bay leaves.

For the veal stock you would just add all the ingredients to the same pot at one time and simmer till the veal is cooked through.
