Bone broth has been called liquid gold for its numerous health benefits. There are countless vitamins, minerals, and nutrients in bone broth that are difficult to find in other food sources. I’m going to share a simple way to make your own bone broth at home.

The first step, and sometimes the most challenging, in making homemade bone broth is collecting bones and tissues to use. A simple way to do this is to save bones from other meals. For example, a chicken carcass (with beak and claws) would be a good base for bone broth. You can ask local farmers for soup bones or roast a whole pastured chicken and save the bones for broth. You may also find bones at your local grocery store. Many butchers or meat sections sell bones too. Try to include as many different types of bones and tissues as possible for the highest amount of nutrients.  Remember, chicken feet, chicken necks, calves feet, and marrow bones are great additions to a healthy bone broth recipe as well.


-1 gallon of water

-1 ounce of vinegar

- 3/4 pounds of bones and tissues

- Sage (optional)

- Thyme (optional)

- Salt (optional)

- Pepper (optional)

Boil all of the ingredients together in large pot. Then reduce to a simmer for a minimum of 10 hours. (We recommend simmering for up to 24 hours if possible!) Once your bone broth is cool, strain the liquid through a cheesecloth.

*I like to store my bone broth in glass containers. I keep one in the fridge and store the others in the freezer as needed.
