Alice's Chicken and Sausage Gumbo with Rice/Beets/Yams
 
Recipe By:
Recipe type: Stock
Ingredients
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 2-4 whole carrots, cut up
  • 2 celery stalks, cut up
  • 3-4 garlic cloves
  • 2 gallons water
  • 2-3 fryers, cut into pieces, seasoned
  • 1 hen, cut into pieces, seasoned
  • 2 bay leaves
Instructions
  1. In 12 qt. stock or gumbo pot, add the above ingredients. Simmer until chicken is tender (about 1-1 ½ hours).
  2. Remove chicken and strain out the stock. You can discard the veggies. Cool chicken and debone and break into bite-size pieces. This can be done a day or two ahead if you like.
Notes
*****Turn off until ready to serve. Before storing gumbo in refrigerator, make sure it is completely cool. It will spoil very easily. It is better to put it into several containers rather than one large container. It will cool faster. If you are freezing, it does not matter what size container because it will cool faster in freezer.
