I would normally eat any leftover meat by today (ie two days max after it is cooked) but would it still be OK say to use the carcass tonight to make the stock and serve the soup tomorrow?

I am trying very hard to economise, it does not come easy. LOL

Even bought cold toast and a tin of beans for my lunch at work today. Actually cold toast is yummy! grin

I think it will be ok as long as it has been refrigerated.

I am so jealous of you - I wanted to make soup yesterday from the bones of the chicken we had on Sunday and DH the dope chucked it in the bin - he pulled a face and said - ooohhhh I dodn;t thinky ou would go in for that boiling the bones nonsense!


Go make your soup I bet it will be lovely with all that boney stuff!

Agree with Carmenere.

MC, your DH obviously has more money than sense!

Yes - it will be boiled and boiled. No germ could possibly survive.

Yes...boil away!
Refrigerate when cool.

yes it will be fine as Carm said, just keep it in the fridge once you have made it and use tomorrow.

Thanks everyone.

Unfortunately I left it on the cooker, it was bubbling away, I got distracted with bedtime etc and suddenly remembered it.

It had nearly boiled dry sad luckily I just saved it in time before it would have started burning. What am I like.

Oh well there's always next time. Will set an alarm on my mobile next time.
