4 lbs. soup bones from beef or lamb or chicken or even duck!
(Ask your local butcher for organic or grass-fed beef and lamb, while chicken to be organic or free of hormones and antibiotics).
2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 carrots roughly chopped
2 celery stalks roughly chopped
1 medium onion chopped
2 garlic cloves smashed
1 piece of ginger
2 bay leaves (optional)
1 bunch coriander(optional)
1 stalk thyme(optional)
1 Tablespoon of sea salt
Enough filtered water to fill your pot
1 pc of turmeric root
10 to 12 whole pepper
1 piece of cinnamon (optional)
1. Place the bones in a big pot/slow cooker and drizzle the vinegar to coat all bones.
2. Add in the vegetables, herbs, and salt. Add water. Stir to combine.
3. Set the slow cooker on low and cook for 10 to 12 hours or longer if possible.
4. When the broth is finished, discard the bones, vegetables, and herbs. Strain the liquid to remove all solids through a sieve into a glass container.
5. Refrigerate the broth for at least 3 hours or overnight. The fat will separate, rise to the top, and form an opaque white layer. Once the fat has congealed, skim it off the top to remove excess fat. You can also leave the fat in if you like your broth “creamy”.
6. To serve, heat the broth (which will resemble gelatin) over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. Then pour 1 cup into a bowl and enjoy. Or, use the broth in recipes calling for chicken or beef stock.
7. Store all leftover broth in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for 9 months to a year.
