Homemade Broth
Super easy

Avoid boxed or canned broth made with veggies you can't eat or spices. Cooking your own broth is easy to do!


Category: Dinner Recipes


For 6 Person(s)


1 carcass of chicken or turkey
1 stalk leek, chopped into thirds
2 stalks celery, chopped in half
1/4 onion

Homemade Broth Directions

  1. After carving a roasted chicken/turkey place the carcass, neck, gizzards and any other unwanted leftovers into a large pot. If desired you can also add leeks, onion, or celery and cut into large pieces.
  2. Fill the pot with enough water to cover and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat and simmer for 2 - 4 hours.
  4. Strain out all the meat and bones so that you have just liquid left.
  5. Once the broth has been reduced to the desired amount you can store it in the refrigerator for up to one week or in the freezer for a few months.
  6. I store mine in Mason jars - leave 1-2" of room at the top and freeze with the lid off. The broth will expand, but there will be room so the jar doesn't break. Once frozen, you can add the lid for long-term storage.
  7. When removing from freezer, I'll microwave for 8 minutes, until it melts enough to remove it from the jar.

Recipe notes

Cooking with the veggies will add a low amount of salicylates, otherwise, leaving them out will be no-salicylate.
