Bones of 1 whole roasted chicken ([aflink u="http://soletshangout.com/whole-roasted-butter-lemon-rosemary-chicken-with-garlic-root-vegetables-gluten-free-paleo/"]such as this one[/aflink])
scant 1/4 cup [aflink u="http://amzn.to/1ti8DkZ"]apple cider vinegar[/aflink]
1 onion, chopped
6 cloves of garlic, peeled
5 stalks of celery, chopped
5 carrots, chopped
1 bushel of parsley
Water, enough to cover bones
Place the bones of the roasted chicken into the bottom of your crock pot. Pour the apple cider vinegar over the chicken carcass. Add in the rest of the veggies and herbs. Fill the crock pot up with enough water to cover the bones and veggies. Put the lid on your crock pot and set it to low. Allow it to simmer on low for 12-24 hours.
Once the chicken broth is done unplug your crock pot and allow to cool slightly before handling. Once it's cooled a bit, strain the broth through a fine mesh strainer in order to remove all of the chunks. Push down on the veggies and bones in order to get any remaining broth out of them.This should leave just a rich golden broth behind.
Bottle up your broth into airtight containers such as mason jars. Allow the jars to cool completely before putting them into the refrigerator. Your broth will keep for about a week this way. If you want your broth to last longer, you may freeze it in FREEZER SAFE mason jars. You can also freeze it into ice cubes for quick and easy use. Simply store the ice cubes in a ziplock bag and add them as needed while cooking for some quick flavor. Stock should last frozen in your freezer for six months.
