Did you know that in traditional cultures, broth is a fundamental ingredient in their kitchens? It is the foundation not only of good food, but also of excellent health. Chicken broth in particular has healing qualities.
The broth is loaded with gelatin. The body needs gelatin to produce strong connective tissue in all parts of the body. It also builds tissue in the joints, alleviating those aches and pains. Helps cure intestinal disorders, blood, lungs, muscular dystrophy, osteoporosis, periodontal disease and many more disorders. Every part of your body needs the components of the broth.
How is the broth made? Basically, it is simply about boiling the bones of chicken, turkey, beef, rabbit and even fish. It’s the long process of simmering that extracts all those vital nutrients from the bones to make a rich jelly broth freeze fried chicken.
Save the bones from various foods like roast or fried chicken and freeze them. You need a full day to keep a pot on the stove. Take the bones out of the freezer, put them in a large pot and fill with water. Turn the heat to high and, while it boils, add half an onion, a few cloves of garlic and about 2 tablespoons of raw apple cider vinegar. Vinegar is what draws the minerals from the bone into your delicious healing broth. (Do not use white vinegar).
After it boils, lower the heat to low to medium and cover with a lid. You will let it simmer all day, checking frequently to refill with water when it is low. Towards night, you can let the liquid cook up to about half. It should be a deep yellow or golden color.
If you want to add some veggies to it, add the whole veggie, or if you have the shells, skin, or top saved, throw them out. Let them cook in the broth for half an hour. Then turn off the heat, let it cool and strain the bones. Now you can freeze the broth in small containers for small meals and pop one or two in the fridge for a quick cup in the morning before starting your day. The broth will settle with the gelatin just like the gelatin. This is exactly what it is supposed to do.
