“Gubbin’s Chicken Soup”

  • 1 whole chicken
  • 3-4 quarts water
  • Minced onion
  • Garlic flakes
  • 8 carrots, sliced
  • 8 stalks celery including leaves, chopped
  • 2 T chopped fresh parsley
  • 3-4 large potatoes
  • 1/3 t. each of sage, rosemary,  marjoram
  • 1 bay leaf, broken in half
  • 3-4 T. salt
  • 1 T raw apple cider vinegar
  • 2-3 T coconut oil

Rinse chicken under running water, removing giblets and rinsing cavity.  Put chicken into a large stainless steel soup pot and add water to barely cover chicken.  Simmer on med-low heat for an hour or more until chicken separates easily from the bones.  Lift chicken out of the pan and put on a tray to cool.  Remove chicken from bones and shred or chop.

Add onions, garlic, carrots, potatoes, parsley, and spices to the broth and simmer until carrots are tender (usually 30 minutes after boiling).  Stir in the shredded chicken.  Simmer 5 more minutes to blend flavors.
