So many benefits to what is now being called Liquid Gold. You can buy Bone Broth from the Grocery Store, but It can be very expensive. I’ve included my favorite recipe below, you can make it on your stove top, in your crockpot or instant pot.
I enjoy a cup of Bone Broth right before bed each evening, it’s warm, soothing and helps heal my body from the inside out.

Simple Bone Broth Recipe:

2 -3 lbs. of Grass Fed/Finished Knuckle & Marrow Bones
Filtered water to cover all bones and Vegetables
2 Tbsp. Apple Cider Vineagar
2 Cloves Garlic – Sliced in half
2 Carrots – Peeled and large diced
1 Onion – Quartered
1 Tbsp. Salt
Pepper to taste
Add in any herbs to your liking for extra flavor

I roast my bones first to help open the pores of the bones, 350* for 20 min. Place all ingredients in stock pot or crock pot and simmer for 12 – 24 hours. The longer you cook the broth the more nutritious your broth will be. If you’re using a pressure cooker, like an Instant Pot, cook for 4 – 6 hours.

Once broth is finished cooking fill mason jars 3/4 full of your liquid gold. I usually keep one jar in my fridge at all times and I freeze the rest. Wait until the broth has cooled before placing in the freezer, otherwise the jar may break. Broth will last in the fridge for up to a week and in the freezer for 6 months – 1 year. You can also add Broth to your favorite soup or casserole.
