Broth will keep for several days in the fridge. You can keep it unfrozen for longer if you bring it to a boil for about 10 minutes every couple of days. So far as I know you can freeze in Tupperware. I was always too cheap to buy T’ware, but I froze broth & soups in old yogurt containers for years. I am trying to move away from plastic now, and use canning jars instead, because I have a lot of them. The only thing to be aware of with glass is not filling them too far, so that the liquid can expand without breaking the glass.

I store mine in a 64 oz Ball jar and it keeps for more than a month in the fridge.

To be honest, I've never had broth - even solidly gelled bone broth - last more than a week in the fridge before it spoils. Even storing in sterilized glass and pushing to the back where it's coldest.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong?? Sigh.

I concur with Verbena's recommendation when freezing to leave a space at the top of glass jars but also Tupperware (or Rubbermaid or whatever brand ). The broth will expand and bulge upward as it freezes, possibly pushing the lid off. Just ask me how I know this . Ooops .

Wishing you all the best, JustAGirl . Keep us posted how things turned out!

Thanks guys. <3. I borrowed a crockpot and am trying again. The soup pot method yielded a lot of broth; didn't seem like i simmered it long enough though so i'm trying 24 hours in crockpot.
