Bone Soup Recipe…


Healing Bone Broth Recipe 

  1. Start with a locally raised, free-range pastured WHOLE chicken, turkey, duck or goose. Cook poultry in roasting pan in oven, using meat for meals. Save the leftover carcass and bones. *Local butchers or Farmer’s Market may also have bones available if you are not interested in the meat part.
  1. Place already-roasted carcass and bones (about 2 lbs.) in a pot or a crockpot. *In my experience, a pot is preferred as crock pot gets too hot. Add enough filtered water to cover the bones. Add 2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar (to break down & release valuable minerals from bone). Let sit for 20 minutes before cooking.
  1. Optional: Add a chopped carrot, celery stick, salt, pepper, herbs and spices.
  1. Bring to a vigorous boil in a large stock pot (at least 8 Quart) over the stove. Reduce to simmer (small bubbles gently breaking the surface) about 24 hours (I refrigerate at night and resume boiling again the next day, on my day off).
  1. Check every 20 minutes and adjust temperature until water is gently boiling. Add water, as needed to keep filled just above bones. Skim scum from the top as needed and discard.
  1. *Optional: Add parsley and garlic during the last hour of cooking.
  1. Remove from heat and strain out any bone fragments and vegetables in a fine metal strainer.
  1. Cool enough to handle, store in lidded glass jars in the refrigerator and use within less than one week or freeze in gallon freezer bags/freezer storage containers and use in less than one month (I freeze in ice cube trays, then dump into freezer bags to use later for sipping, or to add flavor to soups, stir fry or sauces).

* Bone broth provides minerals such as: calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, sulfur, silicon and trace minerals. (Most of us are deficient in magnesium).
