Here is a great blog post about the health benefits of bone broth and also links to how this blogger makes and stores both chicken and beef broth.
And here is a great article by Sally Fallon about the health benefits of bone broth.
Here's how I do it:
1. Slow cook a whole chicken in your crock pot on day 1. Have chicken and what ever side dishes you want for dinner that night. (I also make this with rabbit and turkey.)
If you have a large family and eat a whole chicken at one meal, put two or even three whole chickens into an inexpensive roaster like the one below, (You can buy them for only twelve bucks here.) and slow cook them, covered, in the oven at 250 degrees.
|These are two very large chickens, going into a low oven.|
|After my stock cooked for 12 hours, I took it out|
added my herbs and spices. Then I popped it back
into the oven for another 12 hours.
