Nourishing Bone Broth


2     organic chicken carcasses
4     carrots
4     celery sticks
½   fennel bulb
1     large bunch of parsley stalks


  • Place the chicken carcass in a heavy bottomed pan & give the bones a good ‘smush’ with the end of a rolling pin to break up the bones & joints to release the goodness.
  • Cover with well filtered or distilled cold fresh water – do not boil until the end, simmer from cold for 2½ hours (no more) 
  • Add the other ingredients, whole not peeled, 20 minutes before end of cooking time.
  • Strain the bones using a fine sieve making sure no sharp pieces of bone enter the golden delicious liquid and VOILA!

Why Bone Broth

There is your fresh homemade, packed with goodness Golden Bone Broth. You can easily pick out the whole vegetables and add them to the broth. You can simmer again for up to an hour if you would like a more intense both this will reduce the mixture down into a thick jelly or gravy if you wish.

Store in ice cube trays and freeze and use when needed. Poultry bone broths fabulous for your dog as the poultry joints are full of Gelatine and Glucosamine, the tiny bones full of marrow. This fab for joint health and for dogs wit GI issues.

I’ve been cooking this for many many years.

Bone Broth can be added to home cooked dog food, fed as a clear soup, used straight from the ice cube for a nice healthy cold treat on a baking hot summers day.

I also use Bone Broth in my recipe for ‘Breaking your dogs Fast’, making a fresh Kefir, Bone Broth & Oat Bircher Muesli featured in my free Book ‘My Top 10 Essential Tips To Live By’.

Supercharge your Broth

I like to add this combination of ingredients below to the already cooked and strained Golden Bone Broth. Just pop the ingredients into the already strained Bone Broth and cook for 25 minutes and you have a delicious power packed filling and satisfying soup.
The Queeniechi Gang LOVE this… all 18 noses in the air sniffing in anticipation as to what fabulousness is to come! The Queeniechi Gang are part of the “MEAT FREE MONDAY CLUB” this can easily be made with a good home made vegetable broth (yes, there will be a recipe) and your dogs will enjoy it just as much! I top this with a little home made soft goats cheese but cottage cheese would be wonderful too and a little grated uncooked, skin on beetroot….. delicious.
