I love making bone broth…it is so nice to have once it starts to get cooler outside…and it has many nutritional benefits as it is loaded with minerals, it helps aid with digestion and the collagen helps to rebuild joints – these are just to name a few!
I have been using organic chicken necks and backs which I get through TK Ranch. Here is how I make it 🙂
I first roast the chicken parts I use for about 45 minutes..this will help to make the broth more flavourful.
Then I put the chicken parts in a stock pot filled with water and add about 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar…I let it sit there for about an hour..the apple cider vinegar helps to pull the collagen and nutrients of the bones out of the chicken.
Next I add some chopped vegetables and spices to the broth – then bring it to a boil and simmer on low for about 24 hours..and then voilà it is done…almost! All you will need to do next is strain the chicken and vegetables from the broth…let the bone broth cool to room temperature and then put into mason jars..make sure to leave about 3 inches space in the mason jar…as the jars can crack if they are filled to full. Enjoy 🙂 I often will drink bone broth for breakfast and as a snack throughout the day…delicious 🙂
