I wanted to make chicken soup and went to the store to buy some “organic free-range” chicken broth…but every single item I found had either some form of sugar or honey in it! Why must something SWEET be added to absolutely everything under the sun???
I wanted to make chicken soup with assorted veggies and wild rice. Guess that’s out of the question? Anybody have any tips for me?May 22, 2012 at 10:09 am #82644

Make your own homemade chicken stock; its pretty easy, you just boil up some chicken and the juices left in the pan afterward is what you need!
Here’s the make your own stock post:

Yup, home made is your only choice. Pretty easy too. Just throw in chicken with whatever veggies you have and there you go. Using chicken legs instead of breast makes better broth IMO. Use up chicken (bake it or add to other meals) and veggies (spice it up and put some EVO on it) and you are left with broth.
FYI, I also save up water from cooking most veggies (pretty much anything besides spinach I think) and use that for soups or cooking rice/quinoa/millet/etc. Valuable minerals/vitamins are in that water so you are wasting it if you throw it away. Just pour it into a jar and put into the fridge until you need it. Cook up some chicken in it and you have a perfect broth 🙂

Do you have a slow cooker? I buy a whole chicken, basically roast in the slow cooker (I sit it on a bed of onions and sprinkle some spices on top) and we eat half of it for dinner one night. There’s usually a small amount of juice which i reserve as stock in the bottom of the pot. Then I strip the meat off to use for another meal, put the bones back in the pot with an onion, a carrot (you’re going to throw the carrot away, so you just get the nutrients, not the starch from it), more herbs and spices, a bit of apple cider vinegar and enough water to cover it all – sometimes a dash of salt too. I leave it on low overnight, and the next morning I have stock. Three meals in one!
