  • Transfer roasted bones and veggies to a big stock pot or large dutch oven. Add in fennel, celery, bay leaves, ginger and turmeric as well as any herbs you are using. Cover with filtered water* (see notes).
    benefits of bone broth
  • Cover and cook on low-simmer for anywhere from 8-12 hours. The longer the broth cooks the more flavorful it will get, however the broth will reduce the longer it cooks. I cooked mine for 10 hours which yield one jar (32 oz)
  • When done cooking the broth, allow it to cool down completely
  • Carefully pour the broth through a fine mesk basket that is large enough to hold the solids. Be sure to also have a bowl that is large enough to collect the broth. Lift mesh basket carefully allowing for the last few drops to fall, afterall this is liquid gold!
    benefits of bone broth
  • Transfer broth to a large jar and let it sit for a few minutes for the oil to separate, so that you can get rid of the excess fat. Alternatively, when you refrigerate the broth and the oil/fat will create a thick layer on top and you can scoop that out too.

  • Once the oil/ fat separates you can use a turkey baster to remove the excess fat contents, which is the top layer (as seen here)**

  • Once all the fat has been removed, close lid to your jar and refriegerate for up to 4 days or freeze for up to 6 months.

Notes

*mine took about 12 cups of filtered water. Depending on the size of the pot you are using you may need more or less water. Be sure to use enough water to cover the bones and veggies.
**fat can be used in future cooking
