    Hi guys!

    I made some chicken stock over a week ago, stuck it in the fridge to cool so I could peel off the fat and portion for freezing... then I forgot. Doh! Do you think it's still good? I hate to toss it... hate to waste anything!

    Thanks!

    Try freezing it in ice cube trays.....then thaw when needed.
