A few Months ago I purchased a Crock-pot to slow cook a Pork Butt. The results were ok, not great. This things real talent is for making Stocks. With a leftover Roast Duck carcass and Bones and a few things from the old root cellar I made some Duck Stock. I did the same thing with a leftover roast Turkey. I have a Ham bone in the Freezer. Who knows what's next. The neighbor's Dog barks a lot.


Duck bones

3 yellow onions, quartered (skin left on)

3 stalks celery, coarsely chopped

2 carrots, coarsely chopped

1 bay leaves

about 10 whole peppercorns

fresh Herbs thyme, parsley, rosemary, what ever you have( if not use dried)

Combine duck bones, onion, celery, and carrots in the crock-pot add clod water till the ingredients are covered, set crock-pot to medium and take a nap.
After your nap skim the scum off the top. cook at least 6 hours. Let cool to room temperature, cover, and refrigerate or freeze until ready to use.
When ready to use place in a pot on the stove over high heat and cook until reduced by half.

note: if your bones are raw Combine bones, onions, celery, and carrots in a large roasting pan; toss with oil and season lightly with salt and pepper. Roast until the bones and vegetables are a rich golden brown, about 30 to 40 minutes.
