Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Place bones into a large stockpot and cover with water.
  2. Add two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to water prior to cooking. This helps to pull out important nutrients from the bones.
  3. Fill stockpot with filtered water. Leave plenty of room for water to boil.
  4. Heat slowly. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to simmer for at least six hours. Remove scum as it arises.
  5. Cook slow and at low heat. Chicken bones can cook for 24 hours. Beef bones can cook for 48 hours. A low and slow cook time is necessary in order to fully extract the nutrients in and around the bone.
  6. You can also add in vegetables, such as onions, garlic, carrots and celery, for added nutrient value.
Recipe Notes

If you’re making beef broth or lamb broth, you should brown the meat before putting it into a stockpot. Fish and poultry are fine to put in a pot without browning first.
