In one of my past blogs on eating healthy and sharing meals, I shared how it was easier to eat healthy when you take turns cooking and share the healthy meals with a friend. The friend that I share meals with is not the only friend that I have that is aiming to eat healthier. Although we don’t share meals each week, she has shared recipes and sent samples of new recipes. In today’s post I am sharing the pictures and recipe for the beef bone broth that she made. Thanks Christine for sharing!
Start by roasting organic soup bones in oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 minutes.
While bones roast …
Into a crock pot, add three fourths hot water, large onion (or onion peels and tops of onions that you have been saving in freezer after chopping onions for other recipes), celery (or celery leaves and ends cut off and saved in freezer), cloves from one head of garlic, ground Thyme, 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and sea salt.
After bones have baked for 45 minutes, add cooked bones and any liquid to the crock pot.
Cook on high for one to two hours. Then cook on low for one to three days. The longer the broth cooks, the more nutrients and minerals will be extracted from the bones.
Drain liquid. Freeze in freezer quart jars. This recipe made 5 jars.
Save bones and marrow. When cool put in freezer bag, save for dog treats.
Save strained onions, celery and garlic. When cool feed to chickens. No waste!
If you have chicken bones instead of beef bones, refer to Brandi’s post (Homemade chicken broth)
In a future post, I will share Christine’s recipe that she made using this bone broth. It was the most delicious chili that I have ever eaten! Oh how I could eat some more of that. Hint…Hint…
