How to make Bone broth
Making bone broth is very simple.
There are many recipes online, but most people don’t even use a recipe.
All you really need is a large pot, water, vinegar, and bones.
To get you started, here’s an easy recipe you can follow:
1 gallon (4 liters) of water
2 tbsp (30 mL) apple cider vinegar
2–4 pounds (about 1–2 kg) of animal bones
Salt and pepper, to taste
1. Place all ingredients in a large pot or slow cooker.
2. Bring to a boil.
3. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 12–24 hours. The longer it cooks, the better it will taste and more nutritious it will be.
4. Allow the broth to cool. Strain it into a large container and discard the solids.
In order to make the most nutritious broth, it’s best to use a variety of bones — marrow bones, oxtail, knuckles, and feet. You can even mix and match bones in the same batch.
Adding vinegar is important because it helps pull all of the valuable nutrients out of the bones and into the water, which is ultimately what you will be consuming.
You can also add vegetables, herbs, or spices to your broth to enhance the flavor.
Common additions include garlic, onion, celery, carrot, parsley, and thyme. These can be added right away in step one.
As you can see, bone broth is incredibly easy to make.
