This clean eating bone broth is nutritious and delicious!
This bone broth recipes is so simple and so delicious! But there’s a secret. A secret I only discovered recently.
I’ve tried many times to make a truly good bone broth and failed miserably. I mean, the broth was good, but it never had that… “I could drink this straight from a cup by the gallon” flavor I was hoping for.
Then one evening about a year ago, my mom sent me home with some broth she had made. I could NOT believe the flavor! I drank nearly the entire batch in one sitting. There was no stopping me. It was nourishing, comforting and the flavor was out of this world!
I called her to find out what she had done differently and she couldn’t think of a darn thing. We chatted about it for nearly an hour trying to figure it out because, according to her, she hadn’t done anything different than she usually does. That is, until she mentioned that she used the rotisserie chicken carcass I had purchased at Whole Foods to make the broth with. She said usually, she just uses a raw chicken and cooks it at home to make broth.
Not entirely certain that that made such a big difference, I forgot about the whole thing for a while. But then about a week ago, I had another rotisserie chicken and thought I’d give it a try.
This bone broth is the BEST bone broth I’ve ever had, and it only uses four ingredients. Who know using a rotisserie chicken carcass could make such a huge difference???!!! But it does.
I will say that it’s not always easy to find a truly clean rotisserie chicken. So be sure you read ingredient lists on the packaging so you don’t get more than you bargained for in your broth.
- The size of your crock doesn’t really matter as long as it fits the carcass.
- For a clearer broth, simply strain it through a fine-meshed sieve or some cheesecloth.
