Laager Rooibos Chicken Stock

Who doesn't enjoy a hearty stew or soup? Throw out your store bought stock and make your own! You will never buy stock from the store again once you give this homemade stock a go.  

Ingredients:

  • 1,75 litres (7 cups) water
  • 8 Laager Rooibos teabags 
  • Chicken backbone and neck or you could use the whole chicken
  • 1 Small onion, chopped
  • 1 Large carrot, peeled and chopped
  • 1 Large celery stalk, chopped
  • 1 Bay leaf

Method:

  1. Add all the ingredients into a large saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover partially and let it simmer for 1 hour. 
  2. Strain the stock and discard the solids. Let it chill uncovered until it goes cold then freeze it into cubes in an ice tray.
