Lucky for us there are plenty of choices for organic broths these days. However, if you want to make your own, it is cost effective, simple, and much more nutrient dense. I like to make my bone broth after making this rotisserie crockpot chicken. You can freeze or use within 5-6 days refrigerated and is perfect for colds, flus, and other pesky viruses as it is immune building and healing!
- Chicken bones or leftover bones/meat from rotisserie crockpot chicken
- Carrots, onions, bay leaves, celery (or whatever other veggies and herbs you desire)
- Fresh ground pepper
- Fresh ground himalayan salt
- 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- If you just have chicken bones, place in crockpot with selected veggies and cover with water (if you have made the rotisserie chicken first, just leave bones and residual meat in crockpot and cover with water. Then proceed to remaining instructions)
- Add seasoning and apple cider vinegar
- Turn crockpot on low and cook for 24 hours. note: some crockpots have automatic turn off so check in with yours periodically to see if it needs to be turned back on or reset
- Strain broth away from bones, veggies, and meat (if any remains)
- Refrigerate immediately
- You may wish you skim off fat from the top and save if you cook with chicken fat otherwise discard
jen, this might be a dumb question…but what do you do with everything else (veggies) once you strain?

i toss the veggies and bones after straining, but they can be used to make another batch of broth by adding more water, acv, and seasonings if desired!

I was diagnosed in 08 with celiac disease since then Drs say I also have diverticulitis, a hiatal hernia ,acid reflux, IBS allergic to soy dairy idk what’s safe it hurts to eat so I don’t so much. Help
Have you given up grain, gluten, and dairy in addition to soy? That should really help! Start with the broth though as it is great for gut healing!
