Frezzing Homemade Soups and Stock

A thread on Pinching Your Pennies today inspired me to write this post.

One of the members asked about buying cheap bones at the butcher to use for making stock. I always make stock after cooking a chicken or a turkey and then freeze it to use in a later recipe. I have never thought about the fact that you possibly could buy bones at the butcher. Here was one of the replies from PYP member Sine:

“Yes, I've bought them cheaply but it has been quite awhile. Ask the butcher for soup bones, and don't forget to ask how much they cost first. Some meat counters just have them out for sale. I think the days of getting them for free are long gone.
It might also help to be friendly with a butcher first--say hi, ask questions (How do you cook this? What is the best buy this week? etc. until he/she knows you are a regular at that store. Then maybe you'll get them cheaper. Just a thought. (A couple of weeks ago I asked what cut they use for stew meat, and the butcher told me scraps. That week stew meat was the same price as petite sirloin steaks, so the butcher told me that my stew would be way better using the petite sirloins. He also told me to use the petite sirloins for stir fry, fajitas, chili, etc., so I stocked up.)”

Take the time to get to know the people that work in your grocery store. Ask questions.

I frequently use empty plastic water bottles to freeze my homemade stocks in. They store well because they don’t take up very much space. I know there are a lot of people that do not use plastics in their homes – so just come up with something that works for you.

This is how PYP Member Lillyun stores her homemade stocks:

“I save all of my sour cream and cottage cheese containers to use for this purpose. It saves me from having to buy extra containers and if one breaks when I am thawing, no biggie, I have more. Plus many recipes call for 8-16 oz of stock anyway so they are perfect and no need to measure.”

Soups are one of those perfect things to freeze. Most soups can be cooked right out of the freezer. It’s a great meal on the days that you forget to pull something out of the freezer to thaw in the morning.

After you make the soup, allow to cool and then carefully pour into a freezer bag. Seal and place in the freezer flat to freeze, in order to save space.

When you are doing a large batch of soups or stews and you have some to freeze and use later, it sometimes seems like it takes forever to cool down, which you need to do before you put them in the freezer. Simply take any clean plastic water bottle and fill in about three quarters of the way with water, then pop it into the freezer. When you are ready to cool down your pot of soup, grab the water bottle and use it to stir your soup. The chill of the ice and the bottle will rapidly cool your soup without having to wait around. When you are done simply wash the bottle and use it again.

Another idea that I found is to freeze soups in a paper cup and then once it is frozen remove the paper cup and put the “soup cubes” in a freezer bag… then you have single servings of soups that you can quickly heat up for a quick lunch. You could just keep them in the cup and then put them in the bag – but you probably won’t be able to microwave the cups.

Freezer Cooking Recipes

Here are some of my family's favorite recipes for the freezer.

Chicken Tetrazzini
10 oz. dry spaghetti -- (10 to 12)
3 cups grated cheese - Jack or Cheddar
3 Tbsp. margarine
1 1/2 cups finely chopped onion
1 can cream of mushroom soup -- (10 3/4 oz)
1 can cream of chicken soup -- (10 3/4 oz)
1 (10 3/4 oz) soup can milk
3 cups cooked diced chicken
salt & pepper
Cook spaghetti as directed until al dente; drain. Sauté onions in margarine.
Mix onions and remaining ingredients with spaghetti in a large bowl. Put
mixture in containers and freeze. To prepare for serving, thaw tetrazzini
and put in a baking dish. Bake uncovered in a preheated 350* oven until
bubbly, about 30-40 minutes. For 2 people makes 5 casseroles.

Chicken and Rice Bake
1 can Cream of Mushroom soup
1 cup water
¾ cup uncooked regular white rice
¼ tsp. Paprika
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
To freeze: Dump all ingredients into 1 gallon Ziploc freezer bag. Lay flat
in freezer.
To cook: Thaw in refrigerator. Place all ingredients in a 2 quart shallow
baking dish. Cover. Bake at 375 degrees F for 45 minutes or until chicken
and rice are done.

CHEESY Chicken and Rice Bake
1 can condensed cheddar cheese soup
1 cup water
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
¾ cup uncooked regular white rice
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
To freeze: Dump all ingredients into 1 gallon Ziploc freezer bag. Lay flat
in freezer.
To cook: Thaw in refrigerator. Place all ingredients in a 2 quart shallow
baking dish. Cover. Bake at 375 degrees F for 45 minutes or until chicken
and rice are done.
notes: Try it with a can of cheddar broccoli soup and add broccoli
florets for added color and nutrition.

Sweet and Sour Chicken

1- 8 oz. Fat Free French Dressing
1- 8 Oz. can Jelly (whole)cranberry sauce

in freezer.
To cook: Mix all ingredients in a 13 x 9 glass pan. Cover with tin foil.
Bake 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Stir and serve over rice or noodles.
note: I like to add a bunch of stir-fry veggies in the bag when I
freeze this. They cook well in the sauce, and add a lot more nutrition to
the meal. (Plus, I don’t have to bother with a side dish this way!)

Chicken Enchiladas
(Freeze the tortillas separately for this easy dinner)
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1/2 pint sour cream

1 egg beaten
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
In a bowl, mix together 1/4 cup of the soup, beef, bread crumbs, egg, and
onion. Shape firmly into 6 patties. (If you are using raw meat, you can
freeze it now and brown the mushrooms and freeze them too, or you can freeze
everything after cooking)
In a skillet over medium heat, cook patties, a few at a time, until browned
on both sides, spoon off fat, set aside.
Stir in remaining soup and mushrooms, return the patties to the skillet,
reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 20 minutes or until done, turning
patties occasionally.
Allow to cool and place patties and sauce into freezer bag. Lay flat to
To COOK: Allow to thaw. Reheat and eat!

    Shelf Reliance: Instant Milk vs. Powdered Milk

    Hey everyone! This is Sara Hanks from Shelf Reliance, and I have a question for you: Are you getting your daily fix of the Olympics? So far, Team USA has won 18 medals in Vancouver. To celebrate, we've got some great sales going on, so head over to and stock up on all of your emergency needs. Now, on to today's post:


    As someone who loves milk and drinks it with every meal, I really appreciate the dairy products that Shelf Reliance offers with THRIVE Foods. You can find two varieties of milk – Instant Milk and Powdered Milk – that are healthy and simple to reconstitute, as well as cheese and a great chocolate drink mix that’s perfect for hot cocoa.

    Since I’ve been at Shelf Reliance, I’ve encountered a lot of people who wonder about the difference between Instant Milk and Powdered Milk. It’s a valid question to ask, and there are many possible answers I could give, but the most basic difference between the two is what they’re meant to be used for. In a nutshell, THRIVE Powdered Milk is great for cooking, while THRIVE Instant Milk is more of a drinking milk. If you’d like a more lengthy explanation, keep reading …

    Instant Milk is made completely from dairy, so it’s more well-suited as a drinking milk rather than a cooking milk (though it works just fine with recipes, too). THRIVE Instant Milk also dissolves quickly (instantly, as a matter of fact) in water at any temperature; this makes the instant milk convenient to reconstitute. Instant Milk has a good amount of both calcium and protein.

    Powdered Milk is made from part dairy and part soy, and it will taste similar to any skim milk you might use. It’s best used for cooking, although, of course, it’s completely safe and fine to drink. THRIVE Powdered Milk also costs a bit less than Instant Milk, and as a good source of calcium and vitamin A, it’s a great choice for your food storage.

    There you have it! Including milk and other dairy products in your food storage will mean greater health and greater variety for meals and recipes, and now that you know how to best use both Instant and Powdered Milk, you’re ready to use them for all your future dairy needs.
