    The Amazing Benefits of This Homemade Remedy

    Wednesday, October 08, 2014
    by Dr. Victor Marchione

    I took a walk outside yesterday. On that stroll I took a deep breath, and sighed because summer is sadly over. However, Iím certainly not concerned about catching a cold because of the cooler weather. In fact, I havenít been sick in years.

    Whatís my secret? It is definitely one of the best classic homemade healing foods I have ever eaten! It is also a very popular comfort food. Iím talking about chicken soup. Not canned and processed soup, though. I make the real stuff, just like grandma used to make.

    Itís a food that seems to cure any illness, but have you ever wondered why?


    Traditional Chinese medicine has known the prescription for centuries. Itís simply the broth from animal bones. Bone broth soup is one of the best nutrient-dense healing foods. These bones contain collagen, gelatin, glycine, arginine, proline, conhondroitin sulphates, glycosaminoglycans, hyaluronic acid, and loads of other nutrients. But the list is long and some of those names can be difficult to pronounce, so here are a few simple reasons I consume bone broth soup on a regular basis:

    Better Digestion: Bone broth soup can help heal the gastrointestinal lining, and treat digestive conditions, such as leaky gut syndrome. The bones contain plenty of the powerful amino acid glycine. I recall a study from the American Journal of Physiology. The study found that glycine stimulated hydrochloric secretion within the stomach in healthy volunteers. The researchers also observed other infusions during the experiment, such as saline, and related glycine peptides, like diglycine, triglycine, and tetraglycine. The glycine and its related peptide infusions would increase plasma glycine concentrations.

    Stronger Immunity: Do you have the flu or a cold? Bone broth, and chicken soup in particular, is known to strengthen the immune system. An in vitro study published in the journal Chest suggests that there may be certain substances within a traditional chicken soup that contain medicinal properties. The study observed that the soup would inhibit neutrophil migration during a standard chemotaxis chamber assay with chemoattractants. Simply put, it boosts your immune system.

    Good chicken soup is the best. My Mom used to make "Monkey Soup" (I don't know why we called it that there were no monkeys in it), homemade chicken soup with parsnips. It took her 2 days to make it. The first day she boiled the chicken and made the broth and the second day she made the soup. There were no noodles in it just chicken, onions, carrots, celery, parsnips, and herbs. That sounds good, I think I'm making some this weekend.

    Roast your bones in the oven for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Next, put the bones in a large pot, and fill it with filtered water. Let it sit in the water for 20–30 minutes. Add your choice of spices and vegetables (I like to use one onion, two large carrots, and two large celery stalks). Bring broth to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until it is complete. I enjoy bone broth soup from beef (48-hour simmer), chicken (24 hours), and wild fish (eight hours). Remember: the healthier the animal, the better the broth. - See more at: http://www.naturalblaze.com/2014/10/....e1AFqSfO.dpuf
    I've never done it this way. I just boil my chicken with herbs, let it cool, strain out the herbs & chicken, and scrape off the fat. I wonder if their way has some advantage.

    I'll always dump the turkey carcass in a pot and boil it for soup...

    Ham bone goes into the bean pot, etc...

    But yeah, yardbird just gets dumped straight into the soup pot without baking first...

    (Why in the hell do you skim off the fat?)

    My chicken soup/broth recipe;

    1 whole bird, neck and gizzards too

    1 large onion cut in half

    1 bunch of celery diced

    1 cup fresh parsley

    1 uncut habanero

    Salt to taste

    Low boil until the bones are bare then pour through a colander to extract broth..

    I pull the pepper out when the meat starts to soften or the whiners in the house complain...

    I dunno. It's the way my Mom made it. This time I won't because the yardbirds I have in my freezer are skinless. My Uncle killed a bunch of chickens and he skins them, he doesn't like chicken skin. <- That's just wrong, what kind of person doesn't eat chicken skin? He normally plucks some for me but he didn't know I was coming over so I got stuck with skinless.

    You gotta cut/break the bones to make it good, so all that marrow can get out. When you are done and cool it down to skim the fat, you know its a good broth if its got the consistency of jello.

    If I'm slaughtering several I'll skin 'em too, much faster if you're not going to roast or fry the darn thing..

    Nothing like plucking and burning pin-feathers to turn ya' off on a chicken dinner...(Could be why everyone brines 'em overnight..)

    I always make some really good chicken stock with a whole roasted chicken carcass leftovers. I put the whole carcass, add purified water, sea salt, ground pepper, chopped fresh parsley, onions, carrots and celery and let it boil to simmer for a couple of hours--leave over night then strain it. I never skim the fat, it is beneficial and loaded with vitamins and minerals. Of course that is the fat from a properly raised chicken.

    I'm lucky, I have an Aunt and Uncle who love me and provide me with all the deer, chicken, and monkey grass I want. He has some turkeys this year, we named them Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter.

    Funny story, when I was little I would spend the night at their farm. Well, I got up early one morning with my Aunt to "help" make breakfast and heard the roosters crowing. I told her that rooster was saying "Unca-Unca-Earrrrrrl" because my Uncle Earl was still in bed.


    What do you put in your final soup? I would like some ideas for something different. I just put carrots, onions, chicken, and parsnips.

    edit: let me see if I can get the wife to tell me how to make "bread crumb yum" that's the only thing similar to noodles. but I only get those when she makes it as I don't know the secret.
    That sounds good.

    You guys always make me hungry with these threads. They have more influence over my saliva gland than any picture I see on FB.

    What do you put in your final soup? I would like some ideas for something different. I just put carrots, onions, chicken, and parsnips.

    I add more-- onion; fresh parsley; fresh basil; a couple garlic cloves; celery and carrots. I will add noodles sometimes. I sometimes like gnocchi into the stock with no added veggies (just stock)--escarole, like Spec's talks about above is delicious in this soup too.

    Damn...now I am getting hungry and I am doing the apple cleanse. *SIGH* I hate the second day of this cleanse.

    9. cook it like a big pancake
    10. take it out of pan and let cool
    11. cut bread crumb yum into 1" sized squares
    12. put into chicken soup

    these hold up real well (better than most noodles) to being in the soup and for reheating.

    Well played Mrs. aregood.

    Thanks for the recipe.

    We have some frozen neck bones and beans thawing out for supper, it's thick enough to cut when cool due to the collagen....
