Bone broth has become a staple in my meals since starting the GAPS diet. At first I was turned off to the idea of eating something that came from a bone ( I was vegan for several years after all :) ). I quickly got over that by realizing that it tasted delicious and has amazing health benefits! However, I was still intemidated by the process of making it. I now know a method that takes less than five minute to prepare, I let my crock pot do the rest. Here is my simple Crock Pot Chicken Bone Broth Recipe below.
1 large chicken
4 stalks of celery
2 TBSP apple cider vinegar
2 clove crushed garlic
Other Spices (add according to your taste) Pink Salt, Peppercorns, Cumin, Parsley
1. Place chicken in crock pot and fill with water.
2. Add 1 onion, 2 carrots, 2 stalks celery, 1 TBSP apple cider vinegar, crushed garlic, salt/herbs to pot
3. Cook on low for 8 hours.
4. Remove chicken from crock pot and pull/ store meat in a glass container. Place chicken bones in a separate container.
6. Strain vegetables from broth and discard. Pour broth into glass mason jars to store in refrigerator
7. Fill crockpot with water and add chicken bones.
8. Add 1 onion, 2 carrots, 2 stalks celery, 1 TBSP apple cider vinegar, crushed garlic, salt/herbs to pot
9. Turn crockpot on high for one hour (or until simmering) then turn to low and let cook 10-12 hours.
11. Strain vegetables and place remaining broth in glass mason jars.
I keep my broth in the fridge for one week. What I don’t use in the week I place in the freezer for later use.
I hope you enjoy this super simple recipe!
