1.5kg boney chicken parts
2 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar
1 large onion roughly chopped
4 celery stalks with leaves roughly chopped
3 carrots roughly chopped
1 garlic bulb cut in half
2 large handfuls of parsley
1 tablespoon of peppercorns
3 bay leaves
Salt to taste
5 litres of filtered cold water
*use organic ingredients where possible
*use any extra food scraps you have, off cuts of carrots or potato peels
*do not peel or cut ends off above vegetables, there is a lot of nutrients in them
- Place all ingredients into a large stockpot or slow cooker and fill with 5 litres of cold water. Leave to stand for 30 minutes to an hour.
- Place on a high heat and bring to the boil. Skim any skin or foam that forms on the surface. Reduce to a low heat and simmer for 6-12 hours. The longer you cook your ingredients, the more flavoursome your bone broth will become.
- Allow to cool slightly before passing the broth through a fine sieve into a storage container. Cover and place in the fridge overnight until the fat rises to the top. Skim this layer off.
The broth can be stored in the fridge for 4 days, or portioned and frozen for up to 3 months.
