I boiled a chicken carcass in somw water with veggie for 3 hours today, then kept all the liquid to freeze for soup making. Is this chicken broth or chicken stock or are they the same thing?

you make broth using just the meat... stock from bones and scraps.... stock comes out thicker and kind of gelatin because of the bones....
"Why make chicken stock from scratch, rather than pop open a can of chicken broth? Besides the obvious taste differences, homemade chicken stock contains gelatin, derived mainly from animal bones and cartilage. It's this gelatin that imparts the silkiness and mouthful texture to true stocks. I'm not sure why canned chicken broth lacks this gelatin (what are they making the canned stocks from anyway?), but it's the gelatin that truly separates the rich stocks from the watery broths."quote from this link
