2 carrots, chopped medium
2 celery stalks, chopped medium
1 medium onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, whole
1 gallon of water
2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
3–4 pounds of bones and tissues (beef or chicken)
Kosher or Sea salt, to taste
Place the carcass/bones in your slow cooker. The bones should fill up about 3/4 of the slow cooker.
Chop your vegetables and garlic, keep peel on. You can also add vegetable scraps and rinsed.
Fill the slow cooker with water. Season with a generous amount of salt (about 1 teaspoon).
Add 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar (don't worry, you won't notice the taste)
Cook on low for 18-72 hours.
Remove carcass/bones and strain the broth in a cheesecloth or colander, if desired. A good broth will usually have a layer of fat on the top, and will gelantize when thoroughly cool. Remove the fat with a spoon and discard.
