I find that when I use bones to cook chicken soup, it turns out very not clear and "dirty". Does anyone have any ideas how to avoid that?

Cloudy soup has to do with the fact that the soup boiled too much. You want to bring the soup to a boil once and then skim off the fat. Then keep the soup cooking at a simmer. It can continue bubbling, but not boil. Makes sense:)?

Yup, just like njmom wrote. What I do is that I put the chicken bones in a wrap and boil bag. That helps with the dirt and then I skim off the dirt and fat as soon as it boils and it rises to the top. I do this 2 times and that is the trick! Then when the soup is all finished, I like to strain the soup into a clean pot and add back whatever vegetables the family likes and I throw out the bones. If you keep the soup as is when you serve it(bones, not strained etc..) I find that the soup isn't as clean and clear.

I cook my bones just with the water in a mesh bag and after a few hours of cooking (and skimming) I throw the bag with the bones out and add in the veggies and cook for half hour. My soup was never so good! The veg taste fresh, they are not shlumpy and mushy!

I actually strain the soup every time. I place a clean paper towel on top of the container into which i pour in the soup. that separates the "dirt" and fat from the rest of the soup. only clear nonfat soup goes through. you might need to replace the paper towel more than once during the process. it's a hassle and a mess but for me it's worth it.
