Homemade Bone Broth

Brenda Janschek
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 12 hrs
Total Time 12 hrs


  • 2 kg of healthy chicken pieces - I use a mix of chicken frames leftover chicken bones and chicken wings or chicken feet
  • 4 litres of filtered water
  • 2 teaspoons natural salt
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar helps to extract collagen from the bones
  • 2 medium carrots cut into chunks
  • 1 large onion cut into chunks
  • 1-2 stalks celery with leaves cut into chunks
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped


  • Place all the ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on high until boiling, then switch to low setting for 4-12hrs
  • Remove all bones and vegetables from the broth and strain into a large bowl.
  • Allow to cool then pour into individual jars ( I use a funnel for this).
  • Put jars into the fridge and leave overnight until the broth thickens and turns into a jelly consistency.
  • I keep all the vegetables which have soaked up all the amazing broth and either blend or chop into a soup,
  • Jars of broth can be frozen, just don't fill them to the brim otherwise they may explode.
