Chicken Bone Broth

In our home, bone broth is simmering in our slow cooker continuously. The benefits are many and the taste...delicious!

What you need:
 All the left over bones and skin from a roasted chicken
 Filtered water
 Apple cider vinegar
 Sea salt

 Slow cooker
 Large strainer

What you do:
 Place all bones and skin in slow cooker
 Cover with filtered water (I usually fill my slow cooker 2/3 with water)
 Add 2 Tbs. apple cider vinegar
 Let sit for one hour
 Add salt and pepper (to taste)
 Cook in slow cooker on low for 12 to 24 hours
 Strain and enjoy!

We enjoy drinking a mug full in the mornings and also using the broth to make soups.

Ingredients from Trader Joe's: organic whole chicken, organic apple cider vinegar
Ingredients from iHerb: Real Salt, or Celtic Sea Salt, organic pepper
