Homemade Chicken Broth: Easy to Make and Healthier

So I first started making homemade bone broth three years ago and the first time I made it I could not believe it was SO EASY to make and it tastes delicious. It makes me so happy to have 16 cups of broth in the freezer for use in future recipes. No more store bought cans or containers of chicken broth at the Tate house. It really is so easy to make and very inexpensive and remember you will not have MSG, yeast extract or any other icky fillers in your final product. It will be loaded with flavor and all real ingredients. This is a recipe I really just threw together. I used whatever I thought would be good. But, I did write down what I was doing so I could share it here. It tasted really good. You could seriously just throw some chicken and vegetables in this broth and it would be a delicious soup.

So finally, here is the recipe for those of you who have been asking. Let me know if you give it a try. Or who has been doing this for a long time? With how easy it is to make, I hope more of us can get back to making our own, real food. It feels so good to put the leftover chicken bones to use instead of just discarding them and bone broths are loaded with lots of great nutrients. For more information on the benefits of bone broth check out this article by Dr. Amy Meyers. She also has her own variation of a recipe in the article. There really is no science to making bone broth you can create your own anyway you choose. And also, you can make beef broth the same way. So let’s start putting bones to good use and make a healthy broth!
