Super Collagen Chicken Bone Broth
If you haven’t heard, the best health elixir of the year is bone broth—and it’s an incredible mix of minerals and healing goodness in a hot, soothing soup! Our Super Collagen Bone Broth boasts plenty of health benefits, due to the exquisite combination of chicken, vegetables and earthy spices. The veggies, already packed with vitamins A and C, provide the fiber and iron we need in such a simple way. The chicken bones and added collagen peptides give us essential proteins to keep our own bones healthy and pain-free! Antioxidants, digestive soothers and vitamin C are just a few of the benefits of the spices, including thyme and dill. But feel free to play with these! We love a little variation of flavor. Make a whole bunch and you’ll be delightedly supplying your body with this hot soup for days!
With fall on the way, soup season is right around the corner. Instead of using sodium-and-preservative-packed store-bought broths, try making your own with this simple recipe. After mixing the ingredients, the broth is fine to be left alone to develop, so this recipe takes virtually no time at all to prepare. Since it requires real chicken bones, there is more protein, calcium, and iron than typical broths and the vegetables load it with vitamins A and C. This recipe is certainly worth preparing for the upcoming cold months!
5 pounds bones of roasting chicken, turkey, and/or duck
1 large Spanish onion (unpeeled, quartered)
2 carrots (unpeeled, halved)
2 celery stalks (leaves on, halved)
1 head garl3ic (unpeeled, halved)
2 cups fresh filtered water
2 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar (this helps pull the minerals from the bones
4 heaping tablespoons (3 scoops) Boomer’s Collagen Peptides
INSTRUCTIONS1. Place the chicken bones, onion, carrots, celery, garlic into the base of your crock pot.
2. Next, fill the ceramic bowl with fresh water and add the Apple Cider Vinegar.
3. Gently place the bowl into the base of the crock pot and put the cover on.
4. Turn heat to high until mixture comes to a boil.
5. Once boiling, change the setting to low and let simmer 24-36 hours. The longer you let simmer, the deeper and richer the broth flavor will be. You may also add a few cups of water during the cook process since water evaporates while simmering.
6. When done simmering, immediately strain the contents through a colander and discard all of the solids. Add in the collagen powder.
7. Chill the stock in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours until cooled and then remove the surface fat.
8. Store in glass containers in the refrigerator or into the freezer for later use.
