I've been using it for making chicken stock. I save all my chicken scraps/ bones and then add aromatics (carrots, onion, celery, leeks, bay leaf, etc.). Then I divvy it out into 2 cup containers and freeze. It's nice because then I always have really good, low sodium, chicken stock in the freezer to kick up my dishes a little bit. Way better than store bought and doesn't take all day like it would in a stock pot on the range.
