Bone Broth to Change Your Life

This bone broth is super easy to make, and it freezes well too! Freeze in one-cup portions to make defrosting easier.  


  • Bones - beef, chicken, or both
  • 1 onion - cut in 1/2, peeling not necessary!
  • 2 carrots - cut in 1/2, peeling not necessary!
  • 2 ribs celery - cut in 1/2 (or to fit in your pot)
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp sea salt


  1. Preparation is the same for either slow cooker or instant pot

  2. Add all ingredients to your cooker. Don't forget the Apple Cider Vinegar, it's what pulls out the collagen from the bones

  3. Fill 2/3 full with water, making sure not to go over any max fill lines

  4. Slow cooker: cook on low for 12 hours

  5. Instant Pot: cook at high pressure for 120 minutes with natural pressure release

  6. Allow to cool slightly, and strain through a fine mesh strainer. Store in mason jars in the fridge, or package in 1-2 cup portions for the freezer. 

  7. You can repeat the process with the same bones and adding fresh vegetables and more Apple Cider Vinegar. The colour won't be as deep but you'll be able to get a bunch more collagen out of the bones!
