French Onion Style Potato Soup
Homemade Beef Broth
Cane Sugar (optional)
I save all my leftover bones in freezer bags, along with onion skins. When I have gathered enough to make a batch of broth, I just dump the bag into a pot, add some water and ACV and cook low and slow for a while. This time I used my crock pot so I wouldn't take up stove space. Broth is done when I have time to strain and put away. This batch was especially onion heavy in relation to the bones. The smell throughout the house was wonderful.
I filled a pot with peeled and cubed potatoes (shredded would work too), then covered with the onion rich beef broth, salt and a little extra water to cover. I brought to a boil, then simmered for 40-50 minutes...so an hour in total. I added some gelatin towards the end and corrected the seasoning with a little more salt and a touch of pepper. I ladled into bowl and topped with freshly shredded Swiss Cheese. Oh yeah......
