With the cold weather coming in, I thought it was the perfect time to make homemade organic bone broth! It came out so delicious that I decided I had to share it here on my blog!
What’s with all of the hype and talk around bone broth? It’s all the rage right now for SO many good reasons!
Bone broth is rich in bioavailable nutrients, collagen and gut soothing glycosaminoglycans! Therefor, it is good for supporting the immune system (rich in magnesium, zinc, calcium and phosphorus), great for gut health (rich in glucosamine, hyaluronic acid, glycine, glutamine, proline) and does wonders for our hair, skin, nails and joints (collagen)
So, how did I make it? Let’s get into the recipe!
A couple of notes first:
*I made my broth in an instant pot.
*Cook time is 2 hours +
*It’s important to add herbs after the broth has cooked so they do not destroy the phytonutrients and antioxidants in the broth.
*The acid from the apple cider vinegar will draw out the minerals from the bones. You can’t taste it in the broth (in my opinion).
- Organic, Grass fed Beef Bones (I bought mine from a local farmer – be sure to ask your farmer about the quality of their meat/bones. Don’t assume!)
- Organic Carrots
- Organic Celery
- Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
Optional Ingredients to add after, when storing broth:
- Organic Rosemary
- Organic Thyme
- Organic Ginger
- Black Pepper
- Lemon/Lemon Juice
- Roughly chop vegetables
- Add bones, vegetables and apple cider vinegar to the instant pot
- Cover the bones and vegetables with filtered water
- Set the instant pot to the soup/broth setting
- Cook on normal for 2 hours
- Vent steam
- Strain broth (You can reuse the bones for another batch if you prefer) I toss the vegetables when i’m done.
- Store with added ingredients and ENJOY!
*You can store the broth in mason jars (leave extra room and defrost in fridge or on counter only), bags or ice cub trays!
Sip on this when your feeling under the weather or need a collagen boost! You can also use it for broth in dishes when cooking!
Pro Tip: Save your organic bones throughout the month and veggie scraps to make a broth.
Happy Healing, Friends!
