Instructions
  1. If you are using a whole chicken, remove the fat glands, and the gizzards from the cavity. Cut chicken parts into several pieces.
  2. Place chicken or chicken pieces in a large stainless steel pot with water, vinegar (to extract calcium) and all vegetables except parsley.
  3. Let stand 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  4. Bring to a boil, and remove scum that rises to the top (if you use pasture raised chickens that are grown and fed organically, you’ll notice little to no scum).
  5. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 6 to 8 hours. The longer you cook the stock, the richer and more flavorful it will be.
  6. About 10 minutes before finishing the stock, add parsley. This will impart additional mineral ions to the broth.
  7. Remove whole chicken or pieces with a slotted spoon. If you are using a whole chicken, let cool, and remove chicken meat from the carcass. Reserve for other uses, such as chicken salads, enchiladas, sandwiches, or curries.
  8. Strain the stock into a large bowl and reserve in your refrigerator until the fat rises to the top and congeals. I keep the fat use it for cooking the next meal. If you wish, you can skim off this fat and reserve the stock in covered containers in your refrigerator or freezer.
Recipe Notes

Note: Its best to use organically farm‐raised/ pasture‐raised chickens for many reasons. They are free of chemical, antibiotics and hormones. Many battery‐raised chickens will not produce stock that gels and give off much scum that is a byproduct. Clean source of food won’t give off the scum at least not as much.

Some of us are pressed with time and rather buy it from a trusted source. Here is my trusted store bought source of bone broth (chicken and beef). Enter "BareFoodAngel" code and receive 5% discount.

Let’s be very clear about the dangers of most store bought soups, canned broth or stock, and bouillon cubes. They are never healthy options even when organic as they are loaded with neurotoxic MSG, and artificial flavors with little to no redeeming nutritional benefit.
