How to make Chicken Bone Broth?
Bone broth is one of the most nutritious foods. It is filled with collagen, amino acids, gelatin and minerals. It has been used for centuries in cooking and for health benefits. Homemade bone broth is made by simmering bones and connective tissues in water. Often times vegetables and aromatic herbs are added to provide flavor.
Chicken stock vs chicken bone broth: What’s the difference?
Chicken bone broth is made by cooking chicken bones in water. The difference between chicken bone broth and chicken stock (aka chicken broth) is the length of time it is simmered. Bone broth is cooked for longer to allow for more nutrients and minerals to leach from the bones. The longer it cooks, the more nutrient dense the bone broth is. Ideally, you want a bone broth that is gelatinous when cold. This is a good sign that your broth is loaded with joint healthy collagen and minerals.
EXPERT TIP: The feet, necks and heads of birds make the most gelatinous broth!

Chicken Bone Broth Directions
Get your ingredients
Add the ingredients to the bowl of a slow cooker and fill with water.
Cover with the lid and Cook on low for at least 24 hours. You can let it cook for 2-3 days. Please watch the water level. You may need to add more water as it cooks to account for evaporation. Periodically skim off the foam off the top of the broth. This will result in a clearer broth with a cleaner taste.
After 2 - 3 days, remove from heat and strain out vegetables and bones using a strainer.
Pour & save
Pour into mason jars for storage. It is safe to freeze
