    a good simmer!

A classic and essential recipe... Herb Fed Bone broth / stock.

Serves: A good freezer stock... excuse the pun

  • 1 leftover Herb Fed chicken carcass or Herb Fed Carcass pack

  • 2 onions, roughly chopped, skins still on

  • 3 celery sticks, leaves left on, roughly chopped

  • 3 carrots, roughly chopped (no need to peel)

  • 1 garlic bulb, sliced in half

  • 3 bay leaves

  • Small handful fresh rosemary

  • Small handful fresh thyme

  • 10 peppercorns

  • 2tbsp cider vinegar

  • 10 peppercorns

  • Add all ingredients to a stock pot and fill with cold water

  • Bring to a boil then simmer

  • Periodically remove any foam from the surface

  • Keep at a very slow simmer for 6-12 hours. The longer you simmer, the more goodness you'll get from the bones!

  • Top up with water if necessary

  • When done, pour through a colander / large sieve in to another pot. You can also then pour the broth through a cheesecloth if you desire

  • Divide in to containers and keep in the fridge for 3-4 days or freeze.

(We find freezing in 400ml plastic containers useful)
