Place bones in the pot and cover with water.
Add apple cider vinegar and pre-soak bones for a one-hour minimum.
After the pre-soak add the remaining ingredients.
Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover & simmer for 8-12 hours, longer if you have time. It will give you a richer flavor.
Once time is up, turn off the heat and allow the broth to rest in the pot to cool.
Remove bones with tongs and leave any meaty residue in the pot.
