I really want to make bone broth. The recipe is calling for bones (not surprisingly) but also chicken feet and all sorts of weird bits and pieces. I can't even remember the last time I saw a bone.

So what ingredients do I really need. Where on earth do I get them from. And how do I do it? Thanks

I assume it's a chicken one you want to make? You just need bones from roast chicken, fresh bones if you can get them (try independent butcher or ethnic butcher). You can roast these or leave fresh. A couple of chicken wings add good flavour. Onions, carrot, celery, few herbs. Bring to the boil and simmer a few hours.S Kim off any scummy bits every so often, then strain out solids If it's cloudy bring to boil and whisk in a couple of egg whites, allow to stand and lift the "raft" off the top. I don't mind it a bit cloudy. If you cool it in the fridge you can scrape of any fat. Serve reheated with chopped veg, mini pasta, barley, whatever takes your fancy
