Food Quotes

"No therapy or drug known to modern medical science can rebuild tissue that has been damaged by disease or trauma. Food alone can accomplish this feat. It is for this reason that nutrition is an indispensable weapon against disease".

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 (2-3 lbs.)
Apple cider vinegar (raw and unfiltered)

Directions: 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.

  1. This was so easy to make! I used the turkey bones, neck, skin, and organ meat leftover from Christmas dinner. I kept checking the stock every so often and it was fun to watch the bones melt away! The stock went into a turkey enchilada casserole and our guests couldn't get enough! So rich and full in flavor! I'm looking forward to making it again. Thanks Sharon!
