2-1/2 pounds bony chicken pieces (legs, wings, necks or back bones)
2 celery stalks with leaves, cut into chunks
2 carrots, cut into chunks. No need to peel if organic
2 onions quartered -no need to peel
2 bay leaves
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
8 to 10 whole peppercorns

1. Place all ingredients in a large pot. Bring to a boil; reduce heat until mixture is just at a simmer. Simmer, uncovered, for 3-4 hours, skimming foam as necessary.
2. Set chicken aside until cool enough to handle. Remove meat from bones. Discard bones; save meat for another use. Strain broth, discarding vegetables and seasonings. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Skim fat from surface as it cools.
3. Warm and drink as a broth, use as a base for soups or stews
