It's the season for broths. Imagine coming from the freezing cold to a warm house and a cup of flavorful chicken broth. There are so many health benefits to chicken soup, broth or stock. Just google "benefits of chicken broth" and a ton of articles will come up, including this one: http://doctorauer.com/benefits-of-bone-broth/ Homemade chicken broth, or any bone broth, is good for your immune and digestive system.
Although, not all chicken are created or treated equal. Our chicken is certified organic, free-range, air chilled for optimal taste and hand slaughtered. They are also raised in accordance with their natural life cycle- so no growth hormones or GMO chicken! To maximize health benefits, you want to be sure to make broth using the highest quality chicken.
Here is a nice recipe for making home made chicken broth. I make a batch of these each month and freeze them. My family loves it!
