Happy Monday everybody!! I know, it’s kind of weird I’m posting a How To Series on a Monday, but I felt like this post was necessary. Right now, myself and 2 other people in my office are the only ones not suffering from the flu, a cold, sinus infection whatever, so aside from wearing a hazmat suit to work (and because the infected won’t stay home) this post was a must.
I had heard about all the wonders of bone broth for months now, from helping heartburn, indigestion and just in general doing amazing things for your immune system I definitely thought it was time to make. I went to a local butcher in my area and got some beef knuckle bones with the marrow, and honestly I really wanted beef leg bones with marrow but they were out but remember you can use any kind you like but definitely try to use bones with the marrow-thats the key. I ended up cooking my bone broth in my Crockpot for 48 hours, but it tasted the best to me at 24 hours because it wasn’t as thick, but remember the longer you cook, the fattier and healthier it becomes for you. I don’t know if this stuff is a miracle worker, but so far I haven’t caught anything yet so we will see. Y’all have an awesome day and stay well!
First, place your water, bones and apple cider vinegar into your pot to let sit for a while…
make sure your water is covering your bones unlike here…
throw in some carrots and celery, you can use as little or as many as you like…
now some onions…
place your Crockpot on high for a couple of hours, then set on simmer and let sit for at least another 10 hours…
- 3-4 Raw Knuckle or Beef Leg Bones, With Marrow.
- 4-6 Medium Carrots or 1 Cup of Baby Carrots.
- 4-6 Stalks of Celery.
- 1/2 Cup of Onion, Chopped.
- 2 Cups of Water.
- 2 Tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar.
- 1 Crockpot.
- Place your water, bones and apple cider vinegar into your Crockpot, let stand for at least 30 minutes.
- Place your carrots, onions, and celery into your pot, place your lid and turn your Crockpot on high for 3 hours, then turn the heat down to low or simmer and continue like this for at least an additional 9 hours, and enjoy!
- Remember, the longer you cook it the more fatty the texture is going to be, but the more health benefits it will have.
- This will keep in the fridge for a week, but it can be frozen for a year.
