Finally tried it: stock in the slow cooker

Thanks to all who posted about making chicken stock in their crockpots. Last night I put a carrot, onion, peppercorns, bay leaves, 2 sage leaves, sprig of thyme, carrot, onion, celery, carcass of roasted chicken, raw chicken back plus fresh water into my crockpot. This morning the house smelled great and even my dog was sniffing the air before getting out of bed! I am rewarded with delicious, effortless chicken stock. I just removed all the solids from the broth and will put it in the frig to separate the fat from it.
I will never make this on the stove again! This was so easy. Even if you don't cook in your crockpot, if you like fresh stock, it would be worth the $15 to buy a crockpot just for making stock.
Thanks for the tips!
