How to Make Bone Broth

How to Make Bone Broth

  • 3-5 lbs FFF Pasture-Raised Bones of your choice
  • 2 medium carrots, roughly chopped
  • 1 medium yellow onion, roughly chopped 
  • 1 medium head garlic, halved crosswise
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 12 cups water, or more as needed to cover
  • 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher/pink Himalayan salt
  • *Optional: 1 inch each of peeled ginger and turmeric for added gut benefits
  1. Bring a stockpot to a roiling boil and add bones in for five minutes, this strips the bones of any surface scum so the inner nutrients are more easily released in the slow-cook process.
  2. Optional for added flavor: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  3. Place chicken bones, garlic cloves, carrots, celery, and onion on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Toss to coat.
  4. Roast in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through.
  5. Transfer roasted bones and vegetables into a 6-quart slow cooker.
  6. Add vinegar, salt, and peppercorns.
  7. Cover completely with water and cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours. You may have to add a little bit more water to keep bones submerged.
  8. Strain the broth using a fine mesh strainer. Pour into jars and refrigerate until ready to use.
  9. Enjoy!

NOTE: plain Bone Broth is incredibly useful when using in a variety of dishes because it takes the place or store bought stock or bullion. To make a plain bone broth simply eliminate everything but the bones, vinegar, and water.
