What's the best way to store home made chicken stock? Atm I have a bunch of jars in the fridge, probably I've been freezing stock in plastic containers, but I'm wondering if there's a better way. Should I freeze it still or will it be fine in the fridge?

How long do you plan to keep it in the fridge? I don’t make stock often (and only make veg stock concentrate in my tmx) but I always freeze it.

Put it in freezer bags and lay it down somit feeezes into slabs.

I once didn't put some in the freezer and was surprised how quickly it grew mould.
Less than two weeks I think?

I freeze in zip lock bags in 250ml or 500ml portions.

I freeze it in jars, or in small moulds and pop them out into a bag.

I freeze it in reusable pouches, flat so it thaws quickly. I’ve also frozen in glass jars before, but they take up a lot more room in the freezer.

Freeze or in Bells jars in the pressure cooker and in the cupboard... mind you, with a big enough freezer I find the second just too fiddly, but it sure saves your butt when the freezer dies (again, for the third time in six months)...

We reduce ours down to an amount that fits nicely into a container that fits well into the freezer space. 99% of ours is used for soup, so goes straight into the pot frozen.

Reduce it down, then make ice-cubes - so you can pop one or two into a sauce.
