Simply Juicy Bone Broth

Soup, UnBox Your Kitchen

I know it can sometimes seem like you need loads of time to make bone broth, but it doesn’t have to be that complicated. Anytime I make a chicken for dinner, I simply pull out my crock pot, toss in all ingredients and heat on low for 12 – 24 hours. Once it’s in the pot, you don’t need to do anything else.

  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • Handful fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons Himalayan salt to taste

  • Simply add the chicken bones to the crock pot.
  • Chop the onion and celery (doesn’t need to be fancy as we discard afterwards). Add the garlic, parsley, salt and pepper.

You can also freeze the broth for up to three months.

Drink a cup of bone broth or use in your next soup recipe!

The amount of broth will vary depending on the size of your pot. If you don’t have a crock pot, you can simmer on the stove in a stock pot as well. If you aren’t able to leave simmering for that long, bring to a boil and simmer for two hours, then place in fridge overnight before you strain to let the flavours meld together a bit longer.

***Juicy Tip – Bone broth is rich in minerals that support our immune systems. It can also help reduce inflammation in our body temples and aid in better digestion.
