Immune System Boosting Bone Broth

Created by Chef Leah of E.A.T Marketplace in old town Temecula. This broth is also available for sale with their curbside pickup 


  • 3 lbs chicken bones or 1 whole roasting bird or chicken parts (legs, breasts, preferable bone in), thighs, etc.
  • Roast enough water to cover the bones by 2 inches (about 3 quarts)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped into large chunks
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp sea salt
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 2 tsp herbs (basil/oregano)


    • Preheat oven to 450°F. Place chicken parts, carrots, leek, onion, and garlic on a roasting pan or rimmed baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes.
    • Toss the contents of the pan and continue to roast until browned, about 20 minutes (or pull if nice and brown). 
    • Fill a large (at least 6-quart) stockpot with 12 cups of water (preferably filtered).
    • Add celery, bay leaves, peppercorns, and vinegar.  
    • Scrape the roasted bones and vegetables into the pot along with any juices.
    • Add more water if necessary, to cover bones and vegetables.
    • Cover the pot and bring to a gentle boil. Reduce heat to a very low simmer and cook with lid slightly ajar, skimming foam and excess fat occasionally, for at least 8 hours!  If you can, let it go up to 12 hours (Do not leave on a stovetop unattended!!)
    • The longer you simmer, the better your broth will be. Add more water if necessary, to ensure bones and vegetables are fully submerged. Alternately, you can cook the broth in a slow cooker on low for the same amount of time
    • Remove the pot from the heat and let cool slightly.
    • Strain broth using a fine-mesh sieve and discard bones and vegetables.
    • Let continue to cool until barely warm, then refrigerate in smaller containers overnight.
    • Remove solidified fat from the top of the chilled broth!

Do Ahead:  Broth can be stored for up to 5 days in the refrigerator and up to 6 months in the freezer.
