  • Bring to a boil then reduce heat to simmer. (transfer to crockpot at this point if desired). Simmer over low heat for 8-24 hours. Remove spices after 4 hours of simmering. Periodically, skim any impurities from the surface with a large spoon.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool. Strain through a fine metal strainer into a glass container. Refrigerate overnight; skim away fat or impurities from the broth after refrigeration.
  • Keep refrigerated and use within 5 days, or freeze for later use.
