  • 2 pounds chicken bones (we like to use organic chicken necks/backs)
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 stalks celery roughly chopped
  • 2 carrots skin on, roughly chopped
  • 1 yellow or white onion roughly chopped
  • 1 head garlic
  • ½ cup fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup fresh thyme
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoon whole peppercorns
  • water or enough to cover ingredients


  • Preheat oven to 400°
  • Place chicken necks and backs on sheet pan and roast for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Rinse vegetables and herbs and place into a slow cooker.
  • Add chicken bones and all remaining ingredients to slow cooker and cover with enough water so that all ingredients are submerged.
  • Set your slow cooker to low heat and let broth stew for 12-18 hours.
  • Remove from heat and carefully separate the vegetables and bones from the broth.
  • Strain the broth into a bowl through a colander, and strain once more through a cheesecloth to remove any remaining particles.
  • Pour broth into an airtight jar and store in the refrigerator for up to a week, or freeze for up to 3 months.
