What you will need:
  • Bones of 1 Whole Free Range Organic Chicken (You can save the meat for other usage)
  • 3-4 slices of Dong Quay (optional)
  • ½ Cup of DOM Benedictine Liqueur (adjust to your liking)
  • 1 Cup of water
  1. Prepare your double boiler by filling up some water inside the pot and bring it to boil. Chop the bones with cleaver into small pieces. Not an easy job, but I saw my mom covering the area she's working at with large plastic cover because there will be some "splatter". Mix the chopped bones with 1 cup of water. Use a collapsible vegetable steamer or something like that to put your chopped chicken bones and Dong Quay
  2. Place this into the inset of the double boiler. My mom brought her traditional double boiler for this reason
  3. Double boil on a very low heat for the next 4 hours. The essence from the bones will slowly drip during that cooking process. The last 15 minutes of cooking, put in DOM Benedictine Liqueur. The alcohol will cook off but the sweet taste of the liqueur remains
  4. You will end up with a curd-looking like soup
The alcohol is "cooked-off" during the cooking process, hence it is safe to use alcohol in cooking while breastfeeding.
