I like to make chicken stew or soup from the carcas of a roast chicken. I put the carcas in a crockpot with water and veggies etc.
The problem is that when it is done, the bones have all fallen apart and it takes me forever to pick them out of the soup. So I was wondering, can I put the carcas in cheesecloth or is there something special I can put it in that will allow the water in but that I can just remove the whole thing when the soup is done?
ps- maybe the correct way to make a soup is to just make broth first, then add veggies etc. But I want to do it this way- just throw everything in at once.\
pps: If you suggest cheesecloth- is that a well known method? I am a little worried about it falling apart or having chemicals from it contaminate the soup.
