I make a weekly batch of bone broth in our house, but I still find myself buying the box broth at the co-op when I make my favorite Vietnamese Pho soup because I don’t have enough! I had heard of people making broth over the course of a week so I decided to cook my homemade bone broth for a few extra days and make a huge batch that I can freeze to have on hand for future use. So now I frequently make 7-day Bone Broth.

7-Day Bone Broth

When you have extra bones leftover, make this 7-day bone broth to save money and have homemade broth for soups and other recipes. Make a huge batch and freeze to have on hand for future use.

Ingredients

  • 1 whole organic, free-range chicken (we get our chicken from Butcher Box)
  • Enough filtered water to cover it in a crockpot every day for 7 days
  • 4 Tbsp apple cider vinegar (ACV) — very important because it pulls the minerals out of the bones and deposits them into the broth
  • Sea salt
  • 21 garlic cloves
  • 3 sweet onions
  • Any spices you desire if you plan to make this a soup base

Instructions

    1. Place the chicken in a crockpot and cover with water, 2 Tbsp ACV, and salt.
    2. Start on high until it is boiling, and then turn down to low and keep the crockpot on low until the chicken is done about 5 hours.
    3. Take the chicken out and clean off the meat.
    4. Then, place the carcass back into the crockpot, throw back in all the skin and knuckles — everything will cook down to bone broth deliciousness!
    5. Cover with water and add 1/2 onion, 3 smashed cloves of fresh garlic, 2 Tbsp ACV, and any spices you would like.
    6. Let this cook for 24 hours.
    7. Then strain off the broth and pour into a large glass container — I use large mason jars.
    8. Leave 2 inches of headroom in the jar if you plan on freezing the broth to allow for expansion.
    9. Put all the chicken parts back into the crockpot, minus the onion.
    10. Add back in another 1/2 onion, 3 smashed cloves of fresh garlic, 2 Tbsp ACV, and any spices.
    11. Repeat this daily for one week.
    12. The broth continues to become even richer and more flavorful as the days go on.
    13. I made 7 huge jars of 7-day Bone Broth to put into my freezer.

Considering that those small boxes of broth at the co-op can be about $4.00 per box, if you get the organic stuff without MSG. this is a considerable savings.

Yay for broth with health benefits that also leaves a little jingle in your pocket!
