Best chicken-bone broth recipe

Take a moment next time you are tempted to buy chicken-cubes and read the contents; you will be shocked. Keeping them from going rotten means a heap of chemicals that you can do without.

And in any case this best chicken-bone broth recipe is so simple.

  • Save your chicken-bones after the meal, freezing them.
  • When you have a pile, simply drop them into any large pot and cover with boiling water.
  • Use a potato masher to get them well under the surface of the liquid.
  • Add a few bay leaves, half an onion and a teaspoon of peppercorns.
  • Cover and cook for an hour or so.
  • Strain off the bouillon and toss the chicken-bones to the dogs.
  • Freeze in cup-size containers.
  1. First choice for me, believing in slow food, made fast, is to use a pressure-cooker; then it is only twenty minutes.

Mindfulness is everything, whether using a sharp kitchen knife, a dangerous carpentry tool and even a pressure-cooker. Many folk are quite anxious about the latter, having once had or heard of a mishap with a purple stain on the ceiling to remind one.

Having said that, today's pressure-cookers are very reliable appliances, with safety valves that are relatively foolproof. But I do know of one person who failed to set the catch, tried to open the device and came close to injuring herself. Mindfulness is everything, even in the kitchen.

A pressure-cooker will do the job in a third of the time, with commensurate less electricity, and probably extract the nutrients from your chicken bones more efficiently.

They are environmentally-friendly appliances that in some small way reduce greenhouse gases and, just as important, make your life easier.
