Ingredients
  • 1 Whole Organic Chicken
  • 6 Carrots
  • 8 stalks of Celery
  • 2 Onions
  • ½ cup Cilantro
  • Spring or Filtered water
  • 2 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dried Thyme
  • 1 tablespoon dried Sage
  • 1 tablespoon Himalayan Salt or Sea Salt
Instructions
  1. Roast the chicken in the oven for an hour at 375 degrees.
  2. When done, let the chicken cool in the refrigerator.
  3. When it is cool, take all of the meat off the bones.
  4. Put the chicken meat into the refrigerator
  5. Put the bones into a large crock pot with the water and apple cider vinegar.
  6. Bones are loaded with nutrients and minerals and the purpose of the vinegar is to leach all of these nutrients out of the bones, but don't worry, you won't be able to taste it.
  7. Peel one of the onions and chop.
  8. Chop 2 of the carrots and 2 stalks of celery.
  9. Place the vegetables into the crockpot.
  10. Cook on low for 24 hours.
  11. After 24 hours remove all of the bones, the onions, celery, carrots, and parsley from the crock pot and throw them out. At this point, you will have a very rich and tasty stock, filled with nutrients. This is a perfect base for your homemade chicken soup.
  12. In addition to making bone broth as a base for your homemade chicken soup, many people make it and drink it plain on a daily basis. This is because of all of the health benefits listed above.
  13. Now you will begin making the soup.
  14. Peel and chop the remaining carrots, celery, cilantro, and onion and place them in the crock pot with the salt and herbs.
  15. Turn the crock pot on high.
  16. Wait until the vegetables are cooked which could take two hours, and then add the chicken. The chicken is already cooked so if you put it in with the other vegetables, it will get overcooked.
  17. Cook for one hour more hour and serve.
