1. Prepare all the ingredients. It's best to cut them into coarse pieces, because you will need to fish them out and drain them later. Making a home soup base is a good opportunity to deal with and use the vegetables that are about to be abandoned in your refrigerator. You can safely put the vegetables you have in the soup. Don't worry that your celery is a little bit bad, and don't worry that your thyme is a bit whitish. You can use them for soup.

3. Unlike many other soups where all the ingredients are boiled together in water, we recommend sautéing the vegetables in oil first because it will have more flavor and nutrition.

You don't need to be watching for 3 hours, but don't run too far to prevent overcooking. According to the cooking situation, adjust the firepower at any time.
After 3 hours, stop heating and cool the soup base for 20-30 minutes.

8. Let the soup cool for a longer time, or even put it in the refrigerator overnight. When it cools, the grease will separate and float to the surface, and use the spoon to remove them all. Of course, the skin and fat-containing parts are not left on the chicken skeleton, so there will not be too much oil to clean up.
When the soup base is completely processed, divide them into suitable containers.
