Who knew it was so easy to make homemade bone broth. A simple kitchen staple I use as the base in sauces, soups and a wonderful addition to a garlic and potato mash. Packed with delicious flavor and the supreme gut healing beverage to keep healthy and your skin a-glow! Praised by many cultures because of the high trace minerals, collagen and ability to boost the immunity. Beverage of choice when feeling under the weather and perfectly paired with a few slices of lemon and pinch of fine sea salt.

Easy Chicken Bone Broth
3-5 pounds bones of roasting chicken
1 large Spanish onion (unpeeled, quartered)
2 carrots (unpeeled, halved)
2 celery stalks (leaves on, halved)
1 head garlic (unpeeled, halved)
1 lemon (skin on, halved)
10 sprigs fresh thyme
10 sprigs fresh parsley
5 sprigs fresh dill
2 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar (this helps pull the minerals from the bones)
- Place the chicken bones, onion, carrots, celery, garlic, lemon, thyme, parsley and dill into the ceramic base of your crock pot.
- Next, fill the ceramic bowl with fresh filtered water and add the Raw Apple Cider Vinegar.
- Gently place the bowl into the base of the crock pot and put the cover on.
- Turn heat to high until mixture comes to a boil.
- 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. I like to also add a few cups of water during the cook process since water evaporates while simmering.
- When done simmering, I immediately strain the contents through a colander and discard all of the solids.
- Chill the stock in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours till cooled and then remove the surface fat.
- Store in glass containers in the refrigerator or into the freezer for later use.
