  • 4 litres of water
  • 2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar(30 ml)
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 2 large carrots

  1. Place all ingredients in a large pot and add the water

  3. Once its cooked, leave it on the stove to cool. Then strain out the carrots, onion, and celery.
  4. You can store the broth in your fridge and drink a little bit of it daily or you can use whatever cups are needed for your sauces, stews, and soups.
