Chicken Bone Soup Recipe
Here is a recipe for chicken bone soup. Do you have any bone soup recipes?
Bones from 1 chicken
2 quarts of cold water
1/2 cup of chopped onions
1/2 cup of chopped celery
1 sprig parsley
salt and pepper
Break up chicken carcass.
Place in kettle with cold water to cover.
Add onion, celery, and parsley.
Simmer gently 2 to 3 hours, occasionally removing scum.
Strain and season to taste.
Serve clear or add some diced chicken or boiled rice.
The bone soup bible:
I find people who truly understand bone soup tend to have experienced poverty in their backgrounds, chef training or are into alternative healing philosophies. Many people of my generation at first go "eeewwww", but once they try a really well made bone soup they "get it".
Some dumplings or homemade noodles would be nice in your soup Edgar. I also sometimes just crack a whole egg into such a soup as it comes to a simmer and serve the poached egg in a bowl along with the broth.
I believe in boiling egg shells in the broth.
I like to roast different types of bones, and then use the roasted bones to start a broth/soup base. I find the roasting adds to the depth of flavour of the soup that you end up with.
I've not done that, the bone roasting, ehBeth and want to know more..
I do not qualify as a stone soup person, since I always do a battuto, or whatever you call it in languages around the globe -
sauteeing some of these - onion, carrots, celery, garlic, and similar, before going on. The later soup may be as simple, just that sauteeing and not sauteeing are different.
My mom, and great aunt made great soups. Stocks with every type of bone. From what I can remember, pork neck bones, ox tails, were popular. I make my version of the Polish borscht with whatever pork bones my butcher has fresh.
Osso-hello, hope all is well. I'll be thinking of you tonight when we take an out of town friend to the best Italian restaurant on the eastside of the state.
edgarblythe-never heard of the eggshell idea. Before I try that, what does that add? Flavor, or protein?
Bone soup is said to be good for the joints. Hyaluronic acid produced by the bones and egg shells is touted to be the ingredient that produces extra synovial fluid to lubricate them.
I just noticed that one Osteo Bi-Flex offering has hyaluric acid as an ingredient.
