The Best Way to Freeze Homemade Stock

Nothing beats homemade! Learn how to safely freeze stock.

Nothing beats homemade stock: it is full in flavor and is a practical (and economical) habit to keep it stocked in the kitchen. However, it is not ideal to keep a large batch in one container—defrosting and refreezing your stock could make it spoil faster. You could freeze them in zip-top bags or glass jars, but the former is leaky and the latter often cracks in the freezer.

 

Here is one tip to always remember when freezing stock: liquid expands when frozen, so always leave space! Use BPA-free freezerware or plastic containers to keep your stock in. Divide your stock evenly into quarts or cups: just enough to get a soup or sauce started. When you pour stock into your container, leave at least 2 inches free at the top and let the liquid freeze solid before putting the cap on.

 

To defrost, leave your stock in the refrigerator overnight.
