How to make bone broth

Bone broth is full of great nutrients such as collagen and minerals. If you enjoy time in the kitchen, its worth learning how to make bone broth. Bone broth is excellent for things such as digestive health, skin, joints, and general wellness. Its also great for boosting protein and minerals especially for those on a keto diet. We stock Mitchells Bone Broth, which is a clean and effective product made here in New Zealand. Its a beef bone broth, and as a bonus, the bones come from grass fed cows. It is possible to learn how to make at home and its easy if you have both time and a slow cooker or crockpot.

For the recipe below, you can use the bones from any animal. It can be a good idea to keep the carcass from your roast chicken and use it this way, but you will need more than one for this recipe. Lamb or beef bones will work.

Recipe Bone Broth

  • 2 – 3 chicken frames (cooked or uncooked)
  • 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
  • 2 carrots diced
  • 2 celery stalks diced
  • 1 medium onion, skin on, quartered
  • 2 cloves of garlic, smashed
  • 1 teaspoon of quality salt (Celtic)
  • A good few shakes of white pepper
  • 1 sprig of fresh thyme
  • 1 bayleaf
  • A decent handful of fresh parsley

Place the bones with the vinegar in the crock pot and leave to sit while you prepare the vegetables. This will give the break down process a head start. Put everything else into the crockpot & fill with enough water so that all the bones and veges are completely covered, around 1.5 litres of water. Cook on high for a couple of hours to get some heat into the mix. Turn the crockpot down to low & simmer for at least 24 hours releasing the collagen from the bones and minerals from the vegetables. Before straining, taste, as you may want to add additional seasoning. Once cooked strain through a colander and collect the liquid, and discard the bones. Once cooled, keep in the fridge & use within a week. Its also a good idea to freeze in cup sized portions. It can be drunk on its own, or use it as a stock for making soup/stews or risotto.
