If you haven’t heard, the best health elixir of the year is bone broth—and it’s an incredible mix of minerals and healing goodness in a hot, soothing soup! Our Super Collagen Bone Broth boasts plenty of health benefits, due to the exquisite combination of chicken, vegetables and earthy spices. The veggies, already packed with vitamins A and C, provide the fiber and iron we need in such a simple way. The chicken bones and added collagen peptides give us essential proteins to keep our own bones healthy and pain-free! Antioxidants, digestive soothers and vitamin C are just a few of the benefits of the spices, including thyme and dill. But feel free to play with these! We love a little variation of flavor. Make a whole bunch and you’ll be delightedly supplying your body with this hot soup for days!

Super Collagen Bone Broth
3-5 pounds bones of roasting chicken, turkey, and/or duck
1 large Spanish onion (unpeeled, quartered)
2 carrots (unpeeled, halved)
2 celery stalks (leaves on, halved)
1 head garlic (unpeeled, halved)
2 cups fresh filtered water
2 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar (this helps pull the minerals from the bones)
4 heaping tablespoons (3 scoops) Further Food Collagen
1. Place the chicken bones, onion, carrots, celery, garlic into the base of your crock pot.
2. Next, fill the ceramic bowl with fresh water and add the Apple Cider Vinegar.
3. Gently place the bowl into the base of the crock pot and put the cover on.
4. Turn heat to high until mixture comes to a boil.
5. Once boiling, change the setting to low and let simmer 24-36 hours. The longer you let simmer, the deeper and richer the broth flavor will be. You may also add a few cups of water during the cook process since water evaporates while simmering.
6. When done simmering, immediately strain the contents through a colander and discard all of the solids. Add in the collagen powder.
7. Chill the stock in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours until cooled and then remove the surface fat.
8. Store in glass containers in the refrigerator or into the freezer for later use.
