Do you ever use chicken or beef broth from the can…or box??  I’m sure you have and it’s easy breezy to open up the can or box and dump into your favorite soup or recipe….but do you actually know what is REALLY in that can/box??  Probably it’s high in sodium and full of MSG and whatever else to make it taste so GOOD….

Well, here’s a great recipe that will save you from ever buying chicken or beef broth again.  AND….you know exactly what is in this recipe and it’s good for you.


Chicken Bone Broth Recipe

2 whole chicken carcasses

10 cups water

1 tbs sea salt

1 whole onion quartered

2 tbs apple cider vinegar

handful of carrots

handful of celery



Combine all ingredients in a large slow cooker.  Cook on high until a boil and then reduce to low.  Simmer on low for 7-12 hours.  Strain liquid.  Discard stock/bones/etc.  Store liquid in jars and freeze.  Makes approximately 4-5 pint jars.

Jars can easily be thawed for soups or recipes that require bone broth or broth.

Recipe for beef is exactly the same except swapping out two beef bones with little meat on.

If you have more or less chickens, increase recipe by 1/2 if you have three chickens or decrease by 1/2 if you only have one chicken. Same can be done for make the beef broth.

Enjoy!  You will love having this broth available in your freezer to make some great recipes.
