Notes

A key ingredient in this soup is the raw apple cider vinegar, as it helps to draw out essential minerals from the chicken bones, helping to make this soup mineral rich. Bone broth along with the garlic, turmeric, veges and protein are key ingredients to help keep your immune system strong during the cooler months.
