    Definitely worth making stock even if you freeze it for later use.  

    Duck soup Groucho?

    Roast the bones a second time and make a jus, Use it for a special or a dish currently on menu, or freeze and utilize to enrich a gravy or sauce? x

    Cool it first, and then skim the fat.

    They make a great stock with lots of flavor. I don't roast the bones, just water and mire poix.
