This is great. Thanks for sharing. I never knew how to make this. Will have to give this a try for when I make Chicken Noodle soup. Thanks so much. :)

What type/brand of glass jar are you using to freeze the broth in? I've had no luck freezing liquids in my ball mason jars. They keep cracking on me :(

I use wide mouth Ball. I've found that when I leave a large gap at least 2" from the top and don't tighten the lid all the way down, my pint jars don't' crack. I tighten the lids after they are frozen solid.
