If you have not ever tried bone broth, let alone attempted to make it, I highly encourage you to give it a go! It has so many healthy benefits and it is inexpensive to make yourself! There are great pre-made products in the store you can buy, but the good quality brands are pretty pricey for the amount you will get. You can just head over to your local butcher, grab some bones, and get started!
You can make the broth over the stove or what I do which is in the crockpot. This is the crockpot I use when making large batches. I recommend using a larger pot than you normally would because some of the liquid is absorbed and you may need to add more throughout the cooking process.
Broth is made from the bones of healthy animals which is mineral- rick infused by the process of boiling. You can also add your own vegetables, spices and herbs to create the flavor you want! You can choose to drink it alone (which I do) or add it to your cooking.
Bone broth is a great source of minerals which is known to boost the immune system and can improve digestion. It supports joints, nails, skin, hair and can also help eliminate cellulite.
You should get a jelly texture on the top of the bone broth. It sounds gross, but it is completely normal.
Some notes about this;
If your liquid started to get absorbed, don't hesitate to add more water as needed!
You can definitely scale down the recipe. You really can't mess it up honestly!
It is best to store the broth in a glass container, however if you purchase a good quality plastic ware I think that works fine. Here is what I use for storage, which works great!
I would recommend keeping one storage container in the fridge and freezing the rest.
Hope you guys enjoy the recipe!
