- 1 Chicken Bones from Whole Roast Chicken (or 3-4 pounds of beef marrow and knuckle bones+2meaty bones such as short ribs; or fish bones including the head)
- 1/2 cup Apple cider vinegar
- 8 pints Water
- 4 cloves Garlic
- 16 oz Red Onion quartered (or leeks sliced)
- 3 Celery Stalks (halved)
- 9 oz Carrots halved
- 2 Bay Leaves
- 1 tsp Himalayan Salt
Place bones in a pot or a crockpot, add apple cider vinegar and water, and let the mixture sit for 1 hour so the vinegar can leach the mineral out of the bones.
Add more water if needed to cover the bones.
Add the vegetables bring to a boil and skim the scum from the top and discard.
Reduce to a low simmer, cover, and cook for 24-72 hours (if you're not comfortable leaving the pot to simmer overnight, turn off the heat and let it sit overnight, then turn it back on and let simmer all day the next day)
During the last 10 minutes of cooking, throw in a handful of fresh parsley for added flavor and minerals.
Let the broth cool and strain it, making sure all marrow is knocked out of the marrow bones and into the broth.
Add sea salt to taste and drink the broth as is or store in fridge up to 5 to 7 days or freezer up to 6 months for use in soups or stews.
*if using a whole, raw chicken, remove the chicken that falls off after about 2 hours. Or you can use the bones from a roasted chicken which will enhance the flavor
**if using a crockpot or slow cooker, bring all the ingredients to a boil first and skim the scum off the top before putting in the slow cooker. These are the impurities you don’t want. Continue to simmer on low for the next 24-72 hours. Click here for our vegetable/vegan broth
