  • 2-3 lbs. chicken bones (backbone, neckbone, wings, legs, etc.)
  • Gizzards from one chicken (optional)
  • Feet from chicken (optional)
  • About 4 quarts cold filtered water
  • 2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
  • 2 carrots, leave peels on and coarsely chopped
  • 2 celery sticks, coarsely chopped
  • 1 bunch parsley
  • 2-inch ginger or tumeric root (optional)
  • Sea salt or Kosher salt to taste


  • Cut chicken into several parts (ask butcher to cut a whole chicken into 8 parts + neck, gizzards and feet – if possible).
  • Place boney chicken pieces in large stainless steel pot with water, vinegar and all vegetables except parsley.
  • Bring mixture to a boil and remove scum that rises to the top.
  • Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 8-24 hours. The longer you cook the stock, the richer and more flavorful it will be. Remember to simmer your broth - it should always be at a rolling boil.
  • About 1 hour before finishing the stock, add parsley. This will impart additional mineral ions into the broth.
  • Remove large chicken pieces with a slotted spoon (if there is meat on the bone, remove and use the meat for other dishes).
  • Strain the stock into a large bowl and reserve in your refrigerator until fat rises to the top and congeals - usually overnight.
  • Skim off the fat (and discard) and reserve the stock in covered containers in your refrigerator or freezer.
