Broth is in the base of all delicious soups and stews. Usually all types of broths are prepared from the bones of a particular animal, to which are added vegetables such as onions, carrots, celery, garlic, mushrooms, as well as red and green peppers.
In the store, the small broth cubes or granules on offer are saturated with chemicals, artificial flavors and salt.
Wondering why you should choose homemade broth over the ones in store?
Of course, homemade chicken broth will take longer to prepare, but you can add fresh vegetables, spices and herbs to your taste preferences and those of your family.
Homemade chicken broth is rich in various minerals: calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. You can also prepare a larger amount and store the rest in the refrigerator (for no more than 1 week).
Here's a recipe for a delicious homemade chicken broth
chicken bones or chicken rib meat - from 1 chicken

Carrots - 2 pcs.
Celery - 1/2 cup (diced)
Black pepper - 5-6 grains

Frying oil or olive oil
Preparation: In a deep pot, heat the oil or olive oil. Add all the diced vegetables. Pour 1.5 liters of warm water and add the chicken bones and parsley and season with salt.
While the broth is boiling, foam may form, which you need to remove. Boil it on low heat for about 2 hours.
If necessary, add more water.
Remove the finished chicken broth from the heat and strain it. Allow it to cool and use it when needed, but make sure to store it in the refrigerator.
