Good Broth = Good Soup.
Good broth does not have to be hard to make. All it takes is a slow cooker or Dutch oven and a handful of ingredients. Toss in chicken, carrots, onions, celery, bay leaf, a little salt, and water to cover. Simmer for 6 to 8 hours on low or in a Dutch oven for several hours. Strain the liquid. Debone the chicken and add it back to the soup. After chilling, skim off fat before adding soup ingredients. To make a beef broth, use beef shanks, onion, and a little red wine.
