Chicken Bone Broth Recipe

Chicken necks and feet
 and/or carcass from a roasting chicken

Water to cover

3 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper

2 Bay Leaves

Garlic cloves

Vegetables of choice


Place all ingredients into slow cooker or stock pot and add enough water until chicken is submerged.

Turn setting to high until it boils, then turn to low and simmer for 24 hours.

Use a slotted spoon to remove veggies and bones. Strain the broth through a find mesh strainer, into a glass dish or mason jars. Add the veggies to the strainer to squish out all of the juice.

Let cool on the counter before putting on lids and transferring to the fridge. After cooling, scrape the fat from the top of jars (though you may choose to keep this, as it has value). Freeze if you aren't going to drink within 3-4 days.
