Can I make stock with frozen meat?

miss louella | Apr 24, 2009 08:40 AM

I am running a free soup and bread lunch program in my community and am getting many extremely generous contributions.

For example, I just got 8 boxes of frozen meat. (Not ground but also not exactly identifiable,) It's frozen in rather large bags (think taking up half a shelf of an upright freezer) and I'm wondering if we can somehow take it from its frozen state to stock without killing anyone. (I am not looking for the world's best stock here, I'm looking for a way to convert this bounty into something we can actually use.)

If we can, indeed, turn this mystery meat into stock from its frozen lump state, what would be your approach?

I thank you and so do the hundreds of folks who will benefit from your answers!
