"What was once known as your grandmother’s miracle cure for a cold or the flu is now the most popular food trend. The oldest of recipes dating back to prehistoric times and one of the cornerstones of the Paleo Diet, bone broth is made from the boiled bones of beef, poultry, or fish, and is often enriched with flavors of vegetables, herbs, and spices. This mineral-rich liquid has been praised for its gifts of immune support, digestive health, and joint strength along with beauty-enhancing qualities of strengthening hair and nails and reducing acne-causing inflammation."

Use all of your chicken or turkey by making a bone broth with the leftover carcass. Save time by making the bone broth in a crockpot or slow cooker.
- Bones and carcass from a roasted turkey or chicken
- 1-2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar (or white vinegar)
- optional: onion, carrot, celery, thyme
Place all ingredients in a crockpot or slow cooker and fill with water. Heat on low for 24 hours. Cool, strain and enjoy the magic potion of bone broth. You can drink it, make soup with it, steam vegetables with it, or make awesome stews and braised meat dishes with it.
You can preserve it by freezing it in ice cube trays and then keeping the cubes in a ziplock bag in your freezer for access to homemade gold anytime you need it.
