05 Jul Chicken Bone Broth
Shortly after giving birth to my first child, I started to crave chicken broth. The problem was that I had been a vegetarian and hadn’t touched meat in over 15 years. Eventually, I gave into my uncontrollable crave and soon learned how powerful and healing bone broth is, especially when you are fighting an illness. Here is a simple recipe for chicken broth. If you want other types of broth, simply swap out the chicken bones for other animal bones.
CHICKEN BONE BROTH
PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOKING TIME: 12-24 hours
1 carcass and bones from a whole chicken
1 tsp. of apple cider vinegar
2 celery sticks
1 onion halved
4 garlic cloves
1-2 bay leaves
½ tsp. sea salt
Enough water to fill your stockpot
1. Place chicken bones and carcass into a large stockpot. Fill your pot up with water and add vinegar.
2. Cover, bring to a boil, and then simmer for 12-24 hours stirring once in awhile.
3. After a good simmer, add your vegetables and cook for another 2-4 hours.
4. Strain all ingredients.
5. Drink a cup, use for soup, or let cool and place in ball jars to freeze.
Tip: If using glass jars in the freezer, leave at least an inch of space for expansion.
