Easy Bone Broth

Bone broth has many health benefits. It can be sipped as  broth or used as a base in other recipes, like my dairy free creamy cauliflower soup.

Here’s our favorite healthy bone broth recipe to try at home:

Ingredients:

2-3 pounds bones (from chicken, turkey, pheasant, lamb, beef, pork or other just be sure they are from a good source and are pastured and grass fed) marrow bones, and bones with the tendons and cartilage are best.

10-12 cups water

1- 2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar or lemon juice (The vinegar’s/lemon juice acidity helps draw the minerals from the bones).

3-4 cups vegetables  — You can use any vegetables including colorful, green leafy vegetables, onions, leeks, carrots, celery

Any favorite herb or spice

Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

Place bones, vegetables, herbs, salt and pepper into a crockpot, or a big pot. Pour in water and apple cider vinegar or lemon juice.

Allow the ingredients to simmer for about 24 hours, or for a minimum of 12 hours (simmer longer for beef or pork bones, less for chicken or smaller bones).

Remove and discard the bones, strain out the vegetables, pour the broth hot into airtight glass jars, allow to cool and refrigerate.

Use/drink or freeze the  broth within a few days.

Note: The source of the bones/meat is important. Be sure you know the source of the bones and be sure the animals have been raised in a large pasture and grass fed.
