Crock Pot Chicken Stock for Pressure Canning

“This is very easy to do. I made the mistake of using the celery leaves in a batch once and the stock was terribly bitter after pressure canning. I researched the manufacturers handbook and learned about celery leaves turning bitter when pressure canned. Save up your carcasses from rotisserie chicken or roasted chicken for the best flavor.I use two Costco chicken carcasses and some wings if I have them. I hope you try this.”
