Chicken Bone Broth Soup
The whole stewing hens from Black Dirt Farm can provide days worth of homemade chicken soup for the entire family. Bring the stewing hen to simmer in a large pot of water with a splash of apple cider vinegar and some salt, dried herbs, carrots, potatoes, and onion throughout the day or overnight (up to 24 hours). Strain and pick the meat off the bones if it still has flavor. You can store this stock to keep on hand for other cooking projects; season it with a little salt and lemon juice to sip as is; or add the meat from the stewing hen, more vegetables, some water or vegetable broth if you want to dilute it, and a grain like farro or pasta and cook until the vegetables and grains are tender to serve as a soup.
