Finding soup I can eat is hard. They all seem to have…tomatoes, or milk, or gluten….the list could go on. I like making my own broth and have done it both on the stove and in the crockpot for years. Since my husband was nice enough to get me a pressure cooker last year I am now using it to make bone broth.
I like to add all sorts of things to the pot. We have chicken at lest once or twice a week and I freeze the bones. I put one to three chickens worth of bones in the pot of the pressure cooker. I love celery, especially the leaves. This is one of those times that just using the stalks is fine. I add lots of carrots and at least half bulb of fennel. A whole onion peeled and cut into quarters, and lots of cloves of garlic. I like to add some ginger and turmeric, both peeled and cut in chunks. I like fresh thyme and sometimes fresh sage and/or lemon grass. I add whole lemon cut in half, and lots of salt and pepper. I like to add kelp powder and dried mushrooms, I prefer shiitake. I then add a splash of apple cider vinegar and coconut amminos before covering it all with filtered water.
I set my pressure cooker for at least 45 minutes and let it set for at lest 15 minutes before letting the pressure out and straining it into a container.
I then cover the chicken bones and veg with more filtered water and re-season (salt, pepper, kelp, and amminos).
