Slow Cooker Bone Broth
2 carrots, peeled and chopped, 1 cup
1 onion, chopped, 1 cup
1 celery stalk, chopped, 1/2 cup
1/4 cup parsley leaves
2 lbs. organic grass-fed chicken or beef bones
3 quarts filtered water
3 Tbs. organic apple cider vinegar
1. Arrange carrots, onion, celery and parsley in bottom of slow cooker. Top with chicken or beef bones. Add water to cover bones. Add vinegar. Let stand 30-60 minutes. This allows the vinegar to draw out the minerals from the bones.
2. Cook on low 18-24 hours.
3. Place a colander in a large bowl or another pot and drain and reserve broth. Discard vegetables and bones. If there is any meat on the bones you can shred it and use it in your broth.
Makes about 12 cups* broth.
*Broth can be refrigerated up to one week or frozen for several months. I freeze my bone broth in one cup containers so they are easy to grab and go!
