Ingredients:  
1 whole chicken (free range, pastured or organic)
1 teaspoon raw apple cider vinegar
3-4 quarts filtered water
4 medium onions, coarsely chopped
8 carrots, peeled and coarsely chopped
2-4 zucchinis, chopped
4 tablespoons extra-virgin coconut oil
1/2 fresh or frozen green peas
4 inches grated ginger
1/4-1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
6 celery stalks, coarsely chopped
1 lb. green beans
1 bunch parsley
5 garlic cloves
2-4 tablespoons Celtic Sea Salt

Directions:
Directions:
If you are using a whole chicken, remove fat glands and gizzards from the cavity. Place chicken or chicken pieces in a large stainless steel pot with the water, vinegar, garlic, salt, cayenne pepper, coconut oil and all the vegetables except parsley. Let stand for 10 minutes before heating. Bring to a boil, removing the scum that rises to the top. Cover and cook for 8-12 hours. The longer you cook the stock, the more cleansing it will be. About 15 minutes before finishing the stock, add parsley. This will impart additional mineral ions to the broth. Remove from heat and take out the chicken. After it cools, remove meat from the carcass. Drop meat back into the soup.
