Healing Bone Broth Recipe
Bone Broth Recipe ::
One whole organic chicken (if you buy it with the meat on then pull the meat off at hour 8 which I explain below. If you buy just the bones then there's nothing to pull off and you can cook it straight through)
2 TBSP apple cider vinegar
1-2 TBSP turmeric (optional)
Add all ingredients to a crock pot and cover chicken with water.
Cook for 8 hours on high or until meat is cooked all the way through.
Pull as much of the meat off of the bones and store in a separate container. This meat is perfect to add to salads or to eat as a snack. If you just buy the bones then there is no need for this step. Just keep cooking the bones.
Continue to cook chicken bones on high in slow cooker. Broth will be ready after about 12 total hours but you can keep this cooking for 4-5 days, as long as the slow cooker is always on. The longer you cook the bones the more they will break down and make the nutrients readily available to you in the broth.
I'll just scoop my broth straight out of the slow cooker and into a mug to drink. You can also use the broth as the base for a soup or to cook your quinoa or rice.
I almost always have a bone broth going in my slow cooker. It's something that I try to start on a Sunday and then just keep it cooking through Wednesday or Thursday.
** You can buy chicken, turkey or beef bones at your local grocer and then cook those to make a broth. I suggest that if you are making a beef broth you start with just the bones, no meat.
