What you get:

1 whole chicken carcass

3 onions

2 leeks

4 garlic gloves

2 handfuls of parsley

4 celery sticks


From your larder:

Olive Oil

2 Tbsp of apple cider vinegar

2 bay leaves


Step 1

Heat the olive oil in a large stainless steel or ceramic cooking pot. Add the chicken bones and stir in the pan to bronze a little. Now add all the fresh ingredients, parsley, vinegar and couple of bay leaves.

Stir and sweat until the vegetables are soft, about 3 mins.


Step 2

Only now add enough water to cover all the ingredients, while still leaving room at the top of the pan. Cover with a lid and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, lid on, for at least 6 hours. The longer the bones simmer, the more nutrients are released so 18-20 hours slow cooking is great; some people leave it for 24 hours.


Step 3

Strain the liquid using a fine mesh strainer and store in glass jars in the fridge or freeze. Then enjoy the magic healing power chicken bone broth.
