Nourishing Chicken Broth
From Joshua Gesino at Interlachen Country Club.

Ingredients

  • (3.5-4 pound) Whole chicken (innards removed and saved for another use) cut in half through the back bone
  • (4 oz) Chicken feet (optional)
  • (1) Yellow onion, quartered
  • (2) Carrots, peeled and cut into thirds
  • (4 stalks) Celery, washed and cut into thirds
  • (1) Leek, washed and cut into thirds
  • (1/2 head) Garlic, cloves separated (skin on is okay)
  • (2 Tbsp) Kosher salt
  • (1/2 tsp) Black peppercorns
  • (1 oz) Dill, stem and all
  • (1 gallon) Cold water

Directions

1.In a medium-size pot layer your ingredients:

  • Start with chicken and chicken feet (if using) on the bottom of the pot
  • Add onion, carrots, celery, leek, and garlic
  • Season with the salt, peppercorns, and lay the dill on top of everything
  • Cover with water

2.Over high heat bring everything to a boil. Once the broth has come to a boil, lower temperature to low until small bubbles lazily rise to the surface.

3.Simmer the chicken brother on low heat for 4 hours. No need to skim the grey foam that rises to the surface - this is full of nutrients! If you want a clear, golden chicken broth go ahead and skin the foam and discard.

4.After 4 hours, strain the chicken broth through a sieve. Discard the vegetables. You may save the chicken and when cool pick the meat - this meat is great for chicken salad or adding the chicken broth is desired.

5.Check the chicken broth for salt and adjust seasoning as desired.

6.Seve immediately.
