It’s been a wet winter. Nothing better for your skin, hair/nails, joints, muscle tissue repair, and gut than BONE BROTH. Yes, you need to plan a head a bit (unless you have gotten on the Instapot bandwagon) but it’s super easy to make and so satisfying. I drink a cup of bone broth and Ben laughs but I feel my body and cells within it “Thanking me!” All you need is a crockpot and 24-48 hours.
4 pounds beef bones with marrow
4 carrots, chopped
4 celery stalks, chopped
2 medium onions, peel on, sliced in half lengthwise and quartered
4 garlic cloves, peel on and smashed
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon whole peppercorns
2 bay leaves
3 sprigs fresh thyme
5-6 sprigs parsley
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
18-20 cups cold water
Place all ingredients in a 10 quart capacity crock-pot. Add in water. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce and simmer gently, skimming the fat that rises to the surface occasionally. Simmer for 24-48 hours.
Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Discard solids and strain remainder in a bowl through a colander. Let stock cool to room temperature, cover and chill. Use within a week or freeze up to 3 months.
