1. You will need a heavy 6-quart pot, preferably not aluminum, with a cover.

2. Put the chicken in the pot; cover with water.

3. Cook over medium-high heat until the water comes to a boil.

4. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered about 45 minutes, skimming off foam as it rises with a slotted spoon.

5. Add remaining ingredients and simmer partially covered 1 to 1 1/4 hours longer until chicken is very tender and falls off the bones.

6. Leave the chicken in broth until cool enough to handle. Remove with vegetables, using a slotted spoon.

7. Discard bones and skin; cover and refrigerate chicken. You should have about 2 1/4 cups of dark and 2 cups of white meat from a 5-pound stewing hen. Wrap vegetables separately.

8. Strain soup through a fine sieve and refrigerate overnight. Remove fat that has solidified on the surface. Makes about 2 quarts (8 cups).
