Can i reduce stock or am i just boiling away all the flavour.
Can i get it to a really reduced thing that needs re hydrating like the little knorr pots?
My freezer is overflowing trying to fit it in somehow...

I do after taking the bones out and freeze in ice cube trays, then put in a bag. As I understand it the more you reduce the stronger the flavour, but remember reading to do it after made as in taken out bones and anything else you may have in it. Works for me.

You're boiling of the water not the flavour, it should taste stronger as it concentrates. Of you chill it and it doesn't turn to a solid jelly, boil it some more!
