Ba­sic Chicken Broth

Natural Solutions - - Food Matters | -

1 5-pound chicken 2 large car­rots 2 large stalks of cel­ery 1 head gar­lic 2 sprigs fresh rose­mary 2 sprigs fresh thyme 1 large yel­low onion 2 tea­spoons of Real Salt (or sea salt of

your choice) 2 tea­spoons of black pep­per­corns

Place chicken in large slow cooker. Rinse off car­rots, cel­ery, gar­lic, and herbs. Chop ends off car­rots and cel­ery, then chop into large chunks. Chop ends off onion, peel off out­side layer, then chop into big chunks. Slice the head of gar­lic in half. Th­ese don’t have to look per­fect. The less time you spend, the bet­ter! Add to cooker. Sprin­kle herbs, salt, and pep­per­corns on top. Cover with wa­ter to 2 inches above the chicken and veg­gies. Set the slow cooker on high and cook for about 12 to 15 hours. You want a slow sim­mer, so ad­just ac­cord­ingly. When broth is fin­ished, al­low it to cool slightly. Pour the broth through a strainer into an­other large bowl. Trans­fer the strained broth to a glass con­tainer and put in the fridge.

PRO TIP: This broth is per­fect for freez­ing to en­joy later!
