“The housewife frequently meets up with the leavings of a party bird from which a good stock can be made.”
So says my Joy of Cooking. Now, I’m not quite sure who the party bird in my house is, just as I’m not sold on exactly who the housewife is. Nor do I have a taste for bird-leaving broth. But I did shove the greasy dregs of a Harris Teeter roasted chicken into a pot last night, with some carrots, celery, onion and spices and simmered until I got what appears to be a broth acceptable to any housewife or party bird.
Here’s my question: Now that I have a giant pot of cold party bird soup on the stove and I’m headed to work for the day, can I leave it out all day and reheat when I get home, or does it need to go in the fridge? Fluffernutter, can I have a ruling?
