The best of all broths..
Why homemade bone broth? Homemade bone broth provides the most amount of nutrients when compared to stock and regular broths. Even after you have cooked your meat the best nutrients are still left inside the bones. Boiling bones is not a new thing. It is an old thing being remembered in present times. Thankfully!

Homemade Bone Broth for health

Great for helping with joint health, gut health including digestion.
The greatest part is that it is pretty inexpensive to make. You can use leftover bones that have already been cooked. If you cooked a half or whole chicken, or ham that had the bones in you have the starting of a great bone broth already!

Homemade Bone Broth Recipe:
I love to use my big crock pot to make my broths. I don’t love having the stove on for a lengthy amount of time.
- 2 Tbsp Apple cider vinegar.
- 2 lbs. or more of Bones – any including fish, pork, and poultry. Precooked. Previously cooked in a stew, soup, or roast of some kind.
- Garlic cloves – 5 – 6 cloves whole.
- Water – enough to cover the bones.
- You can add 3 stalks of celery, carrots, and onion if you like but it is optional.
- Salt and pepper to taste *optional
If you have a crock pot, I suggest using it. Otherwise you should find a pan that is not too big but big enough for the bones.
- Add all the ingredients to the pot. Adding the water last, because you only need enough to cover up the bones.
- Turn the heat to high. (4-6 hours)
- Once it is boiling turn the heat to low.
- Cook for 24 – 72 hours if possible.
- I usually can only stand to wait for about 24 hours myself.
- Let it cool down just a bit and then, using a fine metal sieve to strain out the bones, and other things floating around in the pot.
- Add salt and pepper to taste if you like. Use this broth for soups, stews or have it by itself!
The wonderful broth can be kept for no more than a week in the fridge, or you can freeze it for longer.
That is it. Pretty simple right? Before I put mine away, I put some in a cup and I drink it! Yum! Oh man, it is so good. I can hardly make myself stop drinking it! No joke!
