I ordered 40 lbs of "natural" chickens necks for making broth. The necks still have the actual thyroid in them, so are a good source of the hormone. There was some skin still attached too. The 40 lbs was divided into 4 frozen SOLID chunks. Fortunately, I had a SS pot large enough to accommodate the mass.
10 lbs chicken necks and skin
water to cover
(a few goat ribs stuck in because they were in the freezer)
I put the full pot on the wood stove and let it do it's thing for a few days, until the necks fell apart and fat melted all the way. It became the base for many soups in the following COLD days and nights. It made a HUGE difference for me in staying warm at night.
