How to Make Bone Broth

picHow to Make Bone Broth

Prep time: 10 mins. Cook time: 8 hrs.

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds (or more) of bones from a healthy source
  • 2 chicken feet for extra gelatin (optional)
  • 1 onion
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • 2 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Optional: 1 bunch of parsley, 1 tablespoon or more of sea salt, additional herbs or spices to taste. You can also add 2 cloves of garlic for the last 30 mins of cooking

Instructions:

  • When using raw bones, especially beef bones, it improves flavor to roast them in the oven first for about 30 mins. at 350
  • Then, place the bones in a large stock pot. Pour (filtered) water over the bones & add the vinegar. Let sit for 20-30 mins. in cool water
  • Chop & add the vegetables to the pot (except garlic & parsley) & add any salt, pepper, spices of herbs
  • Now, bring the broth to a boil. When it has reached the boil, reduce to a simmer & simmer until done (fish- 8 hours; chicken- 12-24 hours; beef- 24 hours
  • During the few hours of simmering, remove the impurities that float to the surface; check every 20 mins. for 2 hours to remove this (grass-fed and healthy animals will produce much less of this than conventional animals)
  • During the last 30 mins. add the garlic & parsley
  • Remove from the heat and cool off. Strain to remove all the bits of bone and vegetable
  • When cool enough, store in a gallon-size glass jar in the fridge for up to 5 days, or freeze for later use
