Where can you get Amul Butter in the SF Bay Area? Preferably South Bay/Peninsula/East Bay?

I actually tried that and didn't really expect a response, but did get one!
It says:
"Amul butter will should be available at your local indian grocery stores starting next week to 10 days. From this point forward you will have regular supply of various Amul products "

Co-incidence that it is becoming available next week after all these years? Will know for sure only when I see it in the stores!

My local Indian grocery store New India Bazaar in Milpitas doesn't carry it.

Looks like you yourself were wondering if the drippings from roasting a whole chicken can be used towards stock http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/890012

I'm obviously not an advanced chef or anything. In any case "yuck"ing others and especially novices is rude and unnecessary.

Thanks for the tip. I was planning to use it in a quick stir fry or fried rice. My original question is still unanswered though - when you freeze your chicken stock does it become hard like ice?

The stock was a by-product of baking boneless skinless chicken breasts covered with aluminium foil.
I left the stock uncovered in the freezer because I read on chowhound that people freeze chicken stock in ice trays.

No, I did not add nay alcohol to the chicken when I baked it. I placed the container with the stock right next to my ice trays in the freezer, and the ice is well formed so the chicken stock ought to be too... but it's not.

Refrigerated Ginger Paste-is it still good?

I would use it. Just check the smell, if it is like ginger should smell, then keep it.

Rubbery texture of homemade frozen chicken stock

I baked chicken breasts in the oven last week and froze the juices that were released in a small open plastic container. Yesterday I checked and the frozen chicken stock is not hard like other frozen stuff, but it is of a weird rubbery texture. It also has small rubbery circles on top that kinda come off... that's the fat I guess.
Is this normal? Or should it be hard like ice?
