Making large quantities of this broth can be a great idea if you suffer from long term skin issues. The herbs and digestible proteins are great for the general health of the skin and the broken down bone is full of essential nutrients that rebuild skin tissues and reduce inflammation in the skin.
- Whole chicken (organic)
- 1tbs Apple cider vinegar
- Water (to cover chook)
- 1 each of: carrot, celery, onion chopped
- 1 tsp each of: ginger, garlic, parsley, turmeric
In a slow cooker or large pot place a whole organic chicken (or lamb shank, osso bucco). Add vegetables and herbs – these are antifungal, antimicrobial herbs.
Cover with water and 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and simmer for 6-24 hours. The longer you simmer, the stronger the breakdown of the bone nutrients.
Strain off and keep the liquid and keep this in a container as your broth. You will also be able to scrape off the flesh of the meat if you like to add some protein and a make a more filling soup.
Use this for soups, stews or freeze in batches for later use.
A specific dose for skin health is ½ cup of the broth daily as a warm drink or as part of a meal.
