  • ΒΌ cup kosher salt or to taste
  • 16 cups water or whatever amount you need to fill your slow cooker.


  • Add all of the ingredients to your slow cooker and cook on low for 24 hours. You can also do this on the stove with a large pot for 4 hours.
  • After 24 hours use a colander and a large bowl and strain the broth through the colander into the bowl. Be careful as it will be quite hot! Put whatever the colander catches into the compost.
  • That's it! You now have a delicious broth to use in soups, pastas and much more! It will stay good for about a week in the fridge or you can portion it and freeze it to use for later.


If you have a smaller slow cooker and the flavour is a bit intense you can add water to the broth after you strain it.
