  1. Place all ingredients into a very large soup pot.
  2. Fill pot with water, almost to the top and bring to a boil.
  3. Skim off any scum once the soup boils.(Optional).
  4. Allow to boil for 1 hour, before tasting and adjusting seasoning, if necessary.
  5. Boil for an additional 30-45 minutes, before removing bones and setting them aside. You can strip the bones of the chicken at this time, or wait until later.
  6. Continue boiling the soup on a low simmer for anywhere between 45 minute- 3hours. A longer, slower boil will yield a very nice, rich flavor.
  7. Once the bones have cooled off, peel and pick all the chicken pieces off the bones and put the chicken into the pot of soup. Discard the bones.
  8. I sometimes make this soup and then transfer it into the crockpot to simmer on 'low' for up to 24 hours (we observe the Sabbath, so this ensures we get a hot soup for lunch). The slowly simmered broth is so rich and delicious.
