Easy recipe for making broth and soup from chicken feet, which can be more budget friendly than a whole chicken and creates a lot of healthful gelatin and collagen.
Place cleaned chicken feet in pot. I use a Vita-Clay slow cooker.
Add filtered water.
Add optional chopped vegetables and stir in apple cider vinegar.
Simmer mixture for 9-18 hours. If using a Vita-clay, set it to "slow" for 9.5 hours (this is the max setting for time). If you wish to go longer, you can reset for another 9 hours when it is done.
Strain into a glass bowl.
Cool on the counter until the broth is slightly warm or room temperature.
Pour into mason jar, seal the lid and refrigerate. Rewarm on the stove, add salt and pepper to taste and enjoy on its own or use as a base for all your favorite soup recipes.
