Homemade Bone Broth

Have you heard of liquid gold? That’s what they call bone broth! Some claim that it is a nutritional powerhouse with many health benefits:

  • Rich in protein
  • Rich in gelatin
  • A source of minerals

Apparently, bone broth helps with joint, skin, and digestive health; helps to mitigate the side effects of colds and flu; and supports your body’s detoxification process.

So, bone broth is delicious, nutrient-rich, super good for you, and can be served in a variety of ways. What’s not to like?

I’ve tried a few varieties of store-bought bone broth, and frankly, I’m not impressed. My homemade bone broth from grass-fed beef marrow bones is way better, but then again, I’m biased.

Not only that, but it’s so easy to throw together — 5 ingredients plus water and seasonings — that I make it all the time.

Bone Broth from Grass-fed Beef Marrow Bones

This bone broth recipe is based on my grandma’s chicken soup recipe. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Ingredients

About 3 lbs. of grass-fed beef bones (preferably with marrow in them)
1 large carrot, peeled and cut into 2-3 pieces
2 celery stalks, cut into 2-3 pieces each
1 yellow onion, peeled
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (I use Bragg® Organic, Raw, Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and freshly-ground black pepper to taste (I use Himalayan pink salt)

Directions

  1. Place bones, carrot, celery, and onion into a large soup pot. Don’t cut the onion; leave it whole, peeled, and uncut.
  2. Pour enough filtered water into the pot to cover all ingredients.
  3. Pour apple cider vinegar into the pot.
  4. Add garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  5. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a low simmer.
  6. Simmer for 24 hours (walk away and leave it alone, seriously!)

Yep, that’s how quick and easy it is to make your own bone broth. It takes a while to cook, but the end result is rich, satisfying, and oh, so worth it. Enjoy!
