SIMPLE CHICKEN BONE BROTH
Bone broth is legit. It’s a cinch to make your own, and sipping a cup or two per day is so healing for your insides.
1 carcass from a whole roasted
chicken or barbecue chook 1 onion, 3 celery stalks, 2 carrots,
3-4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 Tbsp peppercorns
Fresh or dried thyme and parsley 1 bay leaf
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
STEP 1 Place all ingredients in a large stock pot and add 8‐9 cups of water or enough to cover ingredients by a few centimetres. Bring to a boil then reduce to low and simmer for at least 8 hours, checking water level and stirring periodically. (For the ‘set and forget’ option, a crock pot is fab. To fast-track it, a pressure cooker gets results in 2 hours.)
STEP 2 Remove from heat. Once cool, strain broth through a fine mesh strainer and discard bones and vegies. Pour broth into containers to refrigerate or freeze.
