Health Highlights


1 1/3 kg Chicken bones (or 1 turkey frame)
2 small Yellow onion (peeled, cut into quarters)
2 medium Carrots (peeled, scrubbed, cut into large chunks)
3 medium stalk(s) Celery (washed, cut into large chunks)
4 clove(s) Garlic (peeled, smashed)
1 piece, 1-inch Ginger root (washed, peeled, optional)
1 leaf Bay leaf
10 peppercorn Peppercorn (optional)
1 tbsp Apple cider vinegar
16 cup Water (enough to fill slow cooker)


  1. Place bones and chicken feet, if using, into a large stockpot.
  2. Add onions, carrots, celery, garlic, ginger, bay leaf, and peppercorns.
  3. Fill the pot with enough filtered water to cover the bones.
  4. Add apple cider vinegar (this helps leach minerals and collagen from the bones as it cooks and is a crucial ingredient).
  5. Bring to a boil and skim the scum that rises to the top with a large spoon.
  6. Reduce heat to LOW and simmer, covered, for 24 hours adding additional boiling water, if needed, to keep the bones submerged.
  7. After 24 hours, remove from heat and allow the broth to cool slightly before straining through a fine-mesh strainer.
  8. Broth may be stored in Mason jars with lids in the fridge for up to 5 days (remove the layer of hardened fat before use).
