When making chicken broth, aside from roasting the pieces of chicken and vegetables, there’s another trick that is often used in some cuisines…
Many Jewish kitchens will use onions complete with their skins on to make a tasty broth with a darker color.
I tried this earlier this week and it turned out wonderfully! I told my mother about it and she figured I just knew that…LOL
Of course, when making a broth, you will need to skim out the chicken pieces and vegetables, even strain it perhaps. So, no worries about eating this tough onion skin. It will be gone anyway.
My suggestion, however, is to wash the onion off before adding it to the broth to be sure there’s no residue that would typically be removed by removing the skin.
Huh! Who knew?
