The chill is in the air and Winter is making an entrance. Start a tradition. Start making soup broths. Soup broths are just soul building and cell building for sure.
Any broth is a good broth. Soup broth recipes are often passed down through generations because of course our Parents and Grandparents and their Parents really had to make their own food so making hearty soups and broths were just part of the dinner table staple. Today they are more like an event … Make your own soup broth.
Here’s our Family Recipe:
Chicken is probably the most favourite:
2 carcasses – Organic Chicken with some meat on the bones
1 whole garlic rough cut in half
6 stalks – celery
4 carrots – rough cut
2 onions – rough cut
4 bay leaves
1 apple – cut in half
roast the chicken bones in a 275 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until the bones are just slightly browned. Rough cut the carcass to expose the bone marrow
In a large soup stock pot, stir fry the onions in a little coconut oil and butter until they are just carmelized. Add the chicken bones, the garlic, celery, carrots, bay leaves, apple and vinegar. Fill the soup pot with filtered water till it is about 4″ from the top of the pot or maybe a little. Use about a 16L pot.
Slowly bring to a simmer and let simmer for 6 – 8 hours. Check every few hours and add additional filtered water if necessary.
If you are making soup right away then use a strainer and a small pot and take out as much broth as you need, strain and start your soup. If you are making to freeze, then let the broth cool for a few hours so you are not trying to handle piping hot broth. Be careful – it’s hot but it amazingly delicious
