  • 2 pounds chicken back bones
  • 1 pound chicken wings
  • 1 stalk celery cut into large 3-inch pieces
  • 1 onion quartered
  • 1 carrot cleaned and cut into large 3-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 bunch fresh parsley
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3 quarts or more water
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 425°F.
  2. Place the bones on a baking sheet and roast them in the oven for 45 minutes.
  3. Chop the celery, onion and carrots into large but uniform chunks. Place the bones in the pressure cooker and add the chopped vegetables, apple cider vinegar, seal salt, parsley and bay leaf.
  4. Pour the water into the pressure cooker until it reaches the “Max” line and lock the lid in place.
  5. Pressure cook on HIGH for 3 hours. (You may have to set the cooker multiple times)
  6. Let the pressure drop NATURALLY and carefully remove the lid.
  7. Remove the bones and vegetables with a slotted spoon and discard. The bones should almost crumble.
  8. Slowly pour the broth through cheesecloth to remove any particles of food in the broth.
  9. Chill the broth as quickly as possible (an ice bath is the best option). Transfer the cooled broth into jars or containers and chill completely in the refrigerator. (You can also transfer the broth into zipper sealable freezer bags and freeze the broth flat for quick defrosting.) Store the in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or freeze.
