Chicken Soup

Spicy, Cleansing Chicken Soup
Serves up to 12

1 whole chicken (free range, pastured or organic chicken)
2 to 4 chicken feet (optional)
3 to 4 quarts cold filtered water
1 Tablespoon raw apple cider vinegar
4 medium-sized onions, coarsely chopped
8 carrots, peeled and coarsely chopped
6 celery stalks, coarsely chopped
2 to 4 zucchinis, chopped
4 to 6 Tablespoons of extra virgin coconut oil
1 bunch parsley
5 garlic cloves
4 inches grated ginger
2 to 4 Tablespoons Celtic sea salt
¼ to ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

If you are using a whole chicken, remove fat glands and the gizzards from the cavity. By all means, use chicken feet if you can find them. Place chicken or chicken pieces in a large stainless steel pot with the water, vinegar and all vegetables, except parsley. Let stand for 10 minutes before heating. Bring to a boil, and remove layer that rises to the top. Cover and cook for 12 to 24 hours. About 15 minutes before finishing the stock, add parsley. 

Remove from heat and take out the chicken and the chicken feet. Let it cool and remove chicken meat from the carcass, discarding the bones and the feet. Drop the meat back to the soup, bring to a boil again, and then allow to cool some before serving.
