|Salad and Chicken Soup|
This morning I harvested an older hen and made Chicken Stock with my new slow cook electric crock pot. It was the first time using the crock pot and it worked very well. We are off the grid and get our electricity free from the river so I was pleased that the crock slow cooked all day and didn't take much power. Even though the hen was older the slow cook process made the meat very tender. I added pumpkin squash and beet leaves to about a third of the stock to make tonights dinner. I poured off most of the liquid to have Chicken Stock for future soups. I kept most of the meat and vegetables in a separate container for a undetermined creation for tomorrow night.
