Collagen Rich Chicken Bone Soup

Collagen Rich Chicken Bone Soup

This soup is simmered for a long time. It will harden in the fridge to a jiggly jello-like consistency.


Chicken bones
1 kg
Leek (Green part)
1 stalk
2.5 - 3 litres


1. Wash the chicken bones well and remove the innards and fat.
2. Boil the bones for 2 - 3 minutes, then drain the water. Wash the pan clean, quickly wash the bones and boil it once again. When you've removed most of the scum, go to Step 3.
3. After cooking in the pressure cooker for 30 minutes, let it cool down naturally, and add the leek. Cook for another 30 minutes and let it cool down naturally once more.
4. Strain the soup through a sieve, then strain it once more through a paper towel. Then it's done.
5. If you don't have a pressure cooker, let it simmer slowly, adding water as you go.

Story Behind this Recipe

I made this when I was making a soup stew. Everyone makes it the same way, but it was delicious when I made it so I wrote it up here. The photo shows the soup with just salt and leek.
