Freezing Chicken Stock

rockability | Oct 16, 2009 05:42 PM

I just made a huge pot of chicken stock and it will surely take a while to cool completely before freezing and it's already 8:30 pm. Is it OK to let it cool over night in the fridge and tomorrow morning when I wake up I can begin putting it all into plastic containers to freeze? I read in a couple places that I could leave it out on the stove to cool all night, but I'm hesitant to do that. Suggestions?

Also, is it necessary to remove the fat before freezing and would I be committing a huge chicken stock no-no leaving the fat in place?

Thank you in advance!
