Chicken Bone Broth

Prep: 10 mins

Cook time 12-24 hours or 6-8 hours in slow cooker

  • 2-3 lbs chicken bones
  • 6-8 chicken feet
  • 1-2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 carrots, scrubbed 
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tbsp peppercorns

Add all ingredients to a large stockpot and cover with water. Cover the pot and bring to a boil, then reduce to low heat and allow to simmer for up to 24 hours. Check periodically to skim the film on top and to add more water if needed. 

When the broth is done, remove from heat and allow to cool for an hour or two. Strain the broth. Discard the bones and veg. Place the broth in the fridge. When completely cooled the broth will be gelatinous. That’s what you want. It’s loaded with collagen. The broth will keep in the fridge for up to one week. I like to portion mine in mason jars and store in the freezer for up to 3 months
