"We do not earn or merit anything by taking refuge in God. Hiding in something makes no contribution to the hiding place. All it does is show that we regard ourselves as helpless and the hiding place as a place of rescue." John Piper

Traditional Bone Stock (Chicken or Turkey)

Go here to read about the healthful benefits of this rich traditional bone stock.
Raw or cooked poultry pieces or carcasses with skin
Apple cider vinegar (raw and unfiltered)
Place bones in a large, non-reactive pot, add water to cover and add 1 teaspoon vinegar. Let set for an hour to allow the vinegar to begin drawing the minerals out of the bones. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes with the lid off. Skim off and discard any brown scum that rises to the surface.

Partially cover and gently simmer for a minimum of 2 hours and for as long as 24 hours. The longer the stock cooks the more flavorful and nutritious it becomes.

When the stock is cool enough to work with, strain through a sieve or a double layer of cheesecloth reserving all but the dregs.

Refrigerate the stock, tightly covered, for up to one week. Chilled stock is gel-like. Or freeze to keep longer and have when needed.

To use the stock immediately, remove excess fat (save fat and store in refrigerator to cook with). Season to taste with salt and seasonings of choice. Use as stock in soups, sauces and grains (use stock instead of water when cooking grains) or drink hot as a tonic.

Hi Gina,

Happy that you're enjoying this blog. I have to tell you though, I have opened a new blog that is dedicated to healthy eating via traditional food. You can access it by clicking on the "My Recipes" link on the navigation bar at the very top of this blog. That will take you to "Franziska's Pantry" and from there you can click on the "Recipe Index" on the navigation bar at the top of the blog. It is much easier to find recipes there than on this site. (I accidentally wiped out my recipe index here.) Eventually, I will phase out the recipes here, but there will always be a link to Franziska's Pantry" here at The Good Woman.

Thanks for your comment and welcome aboard!
