Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F
  • Place your bones onto a baking sheet and place into the oven. Cook for 30 minutes.
  • Wash and chop veggies into large pieces – large enough that they won’t turn to mush.
  • Once your bones have roasted, pull them out of the oven and put them directly into a slow cooker. Add the veggies and the herbs into the cooker with the bones
  • Fill a 6-quart slow cooker with fresh water up to about ¾ inch under the rim. Add the bay leaves, ACV and salt
  • Cook in your pot on low. Remove the herbs after about 4 hours and remove the veggies once they’re very soft, but not yet mushy
  • Let the bones cook for a total of 24-48 hours. Strain the broth, let cool a bit, and store in glass jars for up to ONE WEEK in your fridge. You can also freeze the broth if you don’t use it right away.

Notes

The appearance of a gel-like substance (natural gelatin) is normal and desired – enjoy the gut-friendly goodness!
