I’m going to start today’s post with an apology. I am sorry to say this post will not take much time to read. Why? Because it is SO simple to make your own nutritious bone broth at home that this may just turn out to be the shortest post I’ve ever written.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- The bones of a chicken (pasture-raised is ideal, but any will work fine)
- Optional – chicken feet
- Filtered water
- A crock pot ( I am in LOVE with my crock pot like this)
- 1 onion
- 1 carrot
- 1 stalk of celery
- 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar (we’ve been using this coconut vinegar recently for variety)
- Salt & pepper to taste
My crock pot is a 6 Quart slow-cooker. It takes 4 quarts of water with the other ingredients to make plenty of chicken bone broth for the week.
I simply follow these basic steps:
- Place the chicken carcass and feet if available into the empty, clean slow cooker
- Add 1 tbsp vinegar over the carcass
- Slice 1/2 onion and place in slow cooker
- Wash carrot and celery. Place each into slow cooker
- Cover with water & fill to 1 inch below top of slow cooker
- Add a dash of salt and pepper
- Place the cover on the slow cooker.
- Set the timer on 12 hours on the LOW setting
- You can cook anywhere from 12 to 24 hours, depending on the consistency you like.
- When done, allow to cool briefly.
- Filter through something like this.
