Bone Broth Recipe

Last week I made a post about the health benefits of bone broth. This week I thought it only fair to share my homemade bone broth recipe with all of you. Bone broth is a delightful, nutrient dense superfood. It’s a wonderful addition to a healthy lifestyle and there’s so many ways to easily incorporate it into your every day diet. Drink it on its own, add it to soups or use it in place of water when cooking grains to add some extra flavour. Try using it as a substitute when making sauces or gravies! Bone broth makes an amazing base in several different recipes.

Like always, I highly suggest using organic, grass fed, free range bones. A happy, healthy animal really does make all the difference when it comes to the quality of the resulting product. Support the local economy! Try buying bones from your local neighbourhood butcher or go straight to your local farmer. It’s your health, take responsibility!  Don’t be afraid to ask questions to ensure you’re getting good quality bones.

Bone Broth Recipe

  • 3 lbs bones of choice
  • 2-3 litres filtered water
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • fresh vegetable scraps – garlic, onion, carrot, celery etc. (optional)
  • sea salt and pepper to taste (optional)

Directions

  • Add your bones to a crockpot or large pot.
  • Cover the bones with water, for me this usually takes approximately 2 litres.
  • Add the vinegar, vegetable scraps, sea salt and pepper (if doing so.)
  • Let simmer for 20-24 hours, sometimes I do it for even longer.
  • When finished, let cool slightly and strain into glass jars.

Savour.

* Try freezing some of the broth in ice cube trays! Then you always have it handy whenever you need to add a little bit to soups or other recipes.
