Crock Pot Chicken Stock is easy to make. This tutorial will show you how we make homemade chicken broth in our slow cooker.
Chicken Stock ready for the freezer.
I’ve been making my own chicken stock for many years. That’s one thing I knew how to do when I got married! 🙂
How to Make Bone Broth in the Crock-Pot
When I serve the chicken, I remove all the meat from the bones (I don’t serve the meat with bones, because I want to use those bones!).
Then, I just put the bones in the slow cooker along with the leftover juices, fat, etc.
Cover with water and add a few tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, about 10 peppercorns and some celery from the freezer (and parsley, if I have it).
I save the center parts of the celery (and even limp celery that we just didn’t get around to eating before it lost its crispness) in a freezer bag, just for the purpose of making stock.
I turn the slow cooker on high and let it cook for several hours on high. Before I go to bed, I turn the temperature to low, and it cooks all night on low.
I know some advocate letting the bones sit there with the water and vinegar for an hour or so, but if I do that I’m likely to forget to ever turn it on! Besides, it takes our slow cooker a while to fully heat up anyway, so this is fine and works for me. 🙂
