I learned one thing from my mother-in-law: never throw food away.  Well, when it comes to bones and carcass, I don’t. I don’t even throw fish bones and fish heads away. I boil them up into rich stocks from which I use to make nutritious soups and tasty base for other dishes.

This is the simplest and most useful one ever:

Boil leftover chicken carcass up with 3 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar (to extract the marrow and also for taste), a couple of tomatoes, a large onion, ginger and any herbs you have lying around:

I freeze them, and when needed, they can easily be reheated. Here’s chicken soup with a couple of eggs poached in it….absolutely delicious and a wonderful source of easily accessible proteins. Good for a sick person … or anyone, really, who love good, healthy  food.
