Recipe for gelatin rich meat stock to be used instead of bone broth for those with leaky gut in the beginning stages of healing.
Rinse chicken and optional feet with filtered water.
Cut whole chicken in half down the middle lengthwise. Place everything in the stockpot. Add remaining ingredients.
Fill pot with filtered water. Allow the pot and its contents to stand for 30 minutes, giving the raw apple cider vinegar time to draw minerals out of the bones. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for no more than 1 ½ to 2 hours.
Add parsley and sea salt during the last 10 minutes of cooking. Remove the chicken and other large parts. Debone and reserve the meat for eating. It will be delicious.
Strain the stock, cool to room temperature and then refrigerate or freeze.
Use homemade apple cider vinegar instead of store bought if desired.
