I always have Chicken Broth on hand either in the fridge or in the freezer as I use it every day. I cook a whole chicken in the slow cooker and once it’s done I load the following in with the leftover liquid/frame/cartilage/meaty bits…

Have as a delicious drink, use for soups, use to cook veges, use to make sauces and gravies, add to cooking when extra liquid is needed.

Chicken Broth

Liquid gold in a jar.
Prep Time 15 mins
Servings 8 jars approx

Ingredients
  

  • 1 organic chicken frame I use Bostock Bros chickens
  • 1 organic onion
  • 2 organic carrots
  • 1 organic celery stalk
  • 1 organic apple or lemon would you like sweet or sour stock? Or both!
  • 1 tsp Claridge’s sea salt with natural iodine
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • Rosemary and Thyme – fresh or dried is fine
  • 1/4 cup of organic apple cider vinegar
  • 5 leafs of Ceres Organics Nori seaweed
  • Enough filtered water to cover the ingredients – approx 10 cups
  • OR less if you're making the broth in the leftover juices from cooking the chicken – bonus points for extra nutrients!

Instructions
 

  • Add all of the ingredients to your slow cooker
  • Cook on high for 3 to 4 hours. Let cool and sieve into a large bowl, then ladle into jars. DO NOT SKIM THE TOP! This is the best bit, this little layer of healthful fat. (If you want a stock, cook for 6-8 hours or overnight).
  • Store in the fridge for up to 5 days, if unused transfer to freezer (ensure there is room in the top of the jar for expansion).
