Yeah, we know this isn’t fermented. But bone broth is such an important part of good gut health that anyone going after it should add organic bone broth to their diet.
- 1 organic, Free-range or Kosher Whole Chicken, Cleaned and Cut into pieces (If you wish, you can substitute grass-fed beef or another type of poultry for the chicken.)
- 6 chicken feet
- 3 quarts filtered water
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 5 tbsp organic coconut oil
- 8 organic carrots, sliced
- 6 stalks of organic celery, chopped
- 3 medium-sized organic onions, peeled and diced
- 3 organic lemons, sliced
- 5 cloves garlic, peeled and diced
- (Omit these if you have upper GI problems or severe heartburn.)
- 3 sea or pink Himalayan salt
- 1 whole peppercorn
- 8 sprigs of rosemary
Preparation - Place the filtered water in a crockpot, add apple cider vinegar, and let stand for 10 minutes. Add the remainder of the ingredients; and set on high.
Leave on high for 6 hours then lower the heat to low for 18 hours. Remove the chicken meat from the bones; place the bones back in the crockpot. Refrigerate the chicken meat. Simmer on low for additional 24 hours. Then remove and discard bones, rosemary sticks, and chicken feet. Allow broth to cool slightly. Add broth and vegetables to a high-speed blender and blend into a thick, rich broth.
Serving - Ladle into soup bowls, add chicken and serve hot. Some people with extremely severe conditions may want to discard the chicken and vegetables and consume only the broth.
