How to Make Bone Broth | Step by Step Instructional Video

June 7, 2017

A little over a year ago, we shared the many benefits of bone broth,  along with a couple of our favorite recipes to make your own. Since then the trend has only increased, and we’re back with a short tutorial video on how to make your own bone broth. Summer is a great time to make your own broth since the more grilling we do, the more bones we have on hand once the meal is finished. Don’t throw them out! Use them, and the abundance of summer vegetables, to create a tremendous source of nutrients for you and your family. 


How easy is that! If you were wondering, here’s a list of everything we put into our broth in the video. 

  • 1 lb. bones from a free range animal (chicken, beef, ham bone, etc.)
  • 4 qt. water
  • 2 Tbsp. vinegar
  • 2 large onions – cut in half
  • 3 carrots – cut into large pieces
  • 4 celery stalks – cut into large pieces
  • 8 whole cloves garlic
  • 3 parsnips – cut into large pieces
  • 10 fresh sprigs of thyme
  • 10 whole peppercorns

Let us know how your bone broth batches turn out and how you use the broth. One of our all-time favorite soups might be a great start!

I heard that you can re-use the bones at least once and maybe twice. Is this true?

Bones can be used twice, but three times is probably too much and most of the nutrients will have already been pulled out.

Where is the best place to get bones?

We recommend checking with a local butcher or a local co-op too, they're often available in the freezer section. Another option is to buy bone-in meats when cooking and save the bones to use later! 

Thanks! I've been wondering about making bone broth from grilled food.

Now I'm wondering what size storage jars were used in the instructional video? And how long the broth keeps in the fridge?

Thanks too for the reminder of how tasty your Spicy Coconut Stew recipe is.Time to put all my frozen chicken backs & necks to good use!

Great, glad it was helpful. We used a randoma assortment of jars, sorry we don't have the exact measurements. 

We'd say no longer than 3-4 days in the refridgerator and in the freezer for up to a year.
