Here is how to make this basic bone broth recipe:
- use grass-fed beef marrow bones or leftover roasted beef bones or roasted chicken carcass (free-range or pastured chicken)
- Take any meat of the bones and add later to the finished broth or soup.
- Place all ingredients in slow-cooker. Do not forget the vinegar.
- Use enough water to cover bones. Do not fill slow-cooker more than ¾ full.
- Turn to low and simmer for ~48 hrs (for beef bones) or 24 hours (for chicken bones)
- Strain into bowl and discard the leached-out bones and vegetable scraps.
- Can be frozen or used to make soup immediately.
- beef bone/s or chicken bones as needed
- water to cover bones
- 2-3 Tbsp, tablespoon/s vinegar (make sure to add vinegar to leach the minerals out of the bones). You can use any kind of vinegar.
- 2 bay leaves
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 3 carrot/s (optional, can use carrot peels)
- 2 onions (can be onion skins and cut-offs)
- 1 celery stalk (can use leaves and cut-offs)
- 1 head/s or to taste garlic, fresh
Whenever you peel vegetables, take the cut-offs and peelings and freeze them for later use in your next batch of bone broth...
What about the dirt on the peelings?
I have been asked often by clients if vegetable peelings are not too dirty to be put in a soup. Here are my answers...
1. A bit of dirt don't hurt.... Unless you are very immunocompromised, a bit of dirt, even if not cooked, doesn't hurt you. Your innate immune system is meant to deal with this.
2. Usual cleaning to remove obvious dirt with water and a vegetable brush is more than enough for most people.
3. In addition, the cooking/boiling process will kill most micro-organisms that may be harmful, so your immune system has just a few ones left to deal with...
