Simple Bone Broth

One of the core “ingredients” to most of the recipes for promoting healing include bone broth. Unfortunately most of the broths in the stores have sugar or other flavorings which can hinder our progress. Making broth is rather simple and something we can make in batches to freeze for later use. I make broth out of any type of bones – we save the carcasses from turkey, chicken and any beef we eat. I freeze the bones until I am ready to make a big batch and follow the following process:

Simple Bone Broth


Ingredients

  • Bones – roasted – (if not see below)
  • Filtered or distilled water
  • 1 -2 tsp. Salt
  • 1 Bunch of Celery – diced
  • 1 small Onion – diced
  • 4-6 cloves of Garlic – minced
  • Oil – Butter – Ghee (choice) for sauteing
  • Parsley (Optional garnish)

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375
  2. Roast uncooked bones for about 30 minutes (if bones are already roasted such as leftovers from a whole chicken previously baked/roasted)
  3. Add bones to large pot or slow cooker and add water until bones are completely covered – then add about 50% more water
  4. If using a pot on the stove bring to a boil , then turn down on a low simmer and simmer for 12-24 hours
  5. If using a slow cooker turn on high for 2-3 hours then on low for 24 hours (can also leave on low the entire time)
  6. After the broth is made I then saute the veggies & garlic in a large stock pot
  7. When the veggies are almost done I strain the broth into this pot with the veggies and cook on low for 6-12 hours
  8. After this round of “cooking” I will either strain out the veggies and add them to a “stir-fry” and save the broth for later recipes or a mixture of straining out some of the broth for later use and some broth with the veggies for later.
