This here is your best antibiotic superhero flu fighting must have this winter ! sipping on this once a day as a warm soup is the best way to fight those gross germs floating around 😷
because we eat a lot of roast chicken
I keep the bones in the freezer and when i have about 2-3 carcasses I make my broth .
In a slow cooker
place a chicken carcass (grass fed organic is best)
1 – 2 bulbs of garlic peeled
celery broken in large pieces
carrots cut large pieces
onion chopped in large pieces
2 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
a few hot chili peppers (optional)
Cook on high setting for 2 hours turn heat down to low and cook for 10 – 24 hours
Strain before using
(discard vegetables as they have now turned mushy and lost their flavor)
Chicken left on bones can be used in soup.
Since chicken broth is derived from bones, it is rich in several important minerals. An 8-ounce serving of chicken broth offers more than 200 milligrams of potassium, which is 10 percent of your requirement for the day. Potassium is essential for a healthy heart, as well as muscle and skeletal contractions, explains the University of Maryland. Another high-profile mineral in chicken broth is phosphorous. An 8-ounce serving of broth has about 70 milligrams of phosphorous. Phosphorous aids in metabolism, helps build protein and healthy bones and teeth, according to MedlinePlus.com.
