SCD Tip: Freeze Your Broth One Cup at a Time

I know following the SCD diet can be time consuming. All the shopping for ingredients, reading the label and of course the cooking can take a big chunk out of your day. If you don’t want to spend all your time in the kitchen and/or if you work full time (and have a horrendous commute, as I do), you want your weekday meals to be easy and that means having the ingredients you need on hand.

I usually pick one day of the weekend where I can do some more intense cooking and shopping. I like to make a big pot of chicken stock on the weekends and then freeze it for quick use later.

I don’t know why, but it took me a while to think of freezing it in one cup containers so I would have the right amount ready for recipes. Before I would need just a cup for something I was making, only to open my freezer and see a big big of frozen broth in an unspecified amount. So I would thaw that and immediately have to use the leftover (since you don’t want to refreeze that kind of thing).

So that’s my SCD tip for the day – make your broth – make a lot – freeze it in one cup containers.

My chicken broth is simple:

A couple of bone in chicken breasts or a whole chicken
10 cups water
2 tbsp salt
1 tbsp pepper
1 tsp parsley
1 tsp sage
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp thyme (feel free to sing the song…)
1/2 – 1 cup chopped onion (I buy the frozen kind because chopping it makes me cry)
1 – 2 minced garlic cloves

Add everything to a large pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat.Cover and allow to simmer for about two hours. Remove chicken. Strain broth.
