Place the ingredients into a pot or slow cooker and pour enough water to cover the top or the vegetables.

Let this sit for 60 minutes, to allow the apple cider vinegar to set in.

Then add 2 tsp sea salt and 10 black peppercorns.

Place on a high heat, put the lid on and bring to the boil, or set your slow cooker to high.

As soon as it boils, turn down the heat to very low and allow it to simmer for 48 hours, use the low setting on the slow cooker. It’s important that you keep an eye on it, and keep adding water to cover the bones.
