A Basic Chicken Stock

1 pound chicken parts (back -- neck, wings, and bones)
4 cups water
1 carrot -- chopped
1 onion -- sliced
1 celery stalk
10 black peppercorns
5 whole cloves
5 parsley sprigs
1 large bay leaf


To prepare stock, put all ingredients in a heavy saucepan and bring to a rapid boil. With a spoon, remove any foamy scum that collects on the top of the water; reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 1 hour. Strain and store in a glass jar in the refrigerator, or freeze in a plastic container. For small amounts, freeze stock in ice cube trays and then put the stock cubes in plastic freezer bags. Frozen, stock will last for up to 3 months; refrigerated, for 3 days.
