It’s a slow cooker full of bone broth that has cooked for 24 hours. It started out like this (barely stuffed into the crock):

Stock-before
Rotisserie chicken bones and vegetable scraps

After straining the bones and scraps out, I refrigerate the liquid over night like this:

The top layer is fat which will solidify and can be removed easily the next morning. The resulting stock can be frozen, canned, or as I did this time, used for my hubby who was going to undergo a medical procedure today and needed a nourishing liquid diet yesterday. What he didn’t consume yesterday, I am using to make an easy to digest rice and whole wheat pasta dish for him tonight.
