What Else Can I Do With My Big 12-Quart Stock Pot?

Q: All summer, I’ve had my eye on getting a big 12-quart stock pot to be able to steam crabs, and I finally got it a few weeks ago!

The crabs were great — but now I want to do more. Do you have a good chicken stock recipe? What else can I do with my new pot?

Editor: Tiffany, sure! Here’s how to make homemade chicken stock, and how to make vegetable stock too. As far as other uses go, big pots like this are great for making chili, and for processing jars of jam in a hot water bath.

Readers, what else would you suggest?
