How to Make Homemade Bone Broth Two Ways

Alexa Gibbons
Bone broth is so easy to make, and with all of it's nutritional value its something that we started drinking every day. We love the taste of this broth and feel benefits in our hair, skin, and nails. Enjoy!

Equipment

  • Instant Pot or Stovetop Pot

Ingredients
  

  • Bones of choice chicken, beef, fish, deer, etc.
  • Filtered water
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Optional for a more drinkable flavor:

  • 2 stalks of organic celery chopped
  • Italian herbs fresh, frozen, or dry
  • 2 organic carrots chopped
  • Handful of mushrooms
  • Half an onion
  • Garlic cloves or powder
  • Dried cranberries the SECRET ingredient. This gives a nice sweetness to the broth that we personally love.
  • Whole or squeezed lemon

Instructions
 

How to Make Bone Broth in the Instant Pot:

  • First, strip the meat off of your chicken so you just have the bones.
  • Next, place the bones in the Instant Pot and cover with filtered water until bones are just barely covered.
  • Add 1-2 TBSP of apple cider vinegar and gently stir.
  • Cover the instant pot and set the knob to sealing.
  • Press "soup" and set to 2 hours. When the two hours turn off, repeat the process for a total of 3 times (6 hours in soup mode). You can leave the Instant Pot on "warm" for several hours in between if you want.
  • Optional: for a drinkable bone broth, add flavors of choice such as herbs, lemon, mushrooms, carrots, celery, and dried cranberries before simmering. Add salt and pepper to taste.

How to Make Bone Broth on the Stove:

  • First, strip the meat off of your chicken so you just have the bones.
  • Next, place the bones in a large stovetop stew pot and cover with filtered water until bones are just barely covered.
  • Add 1-2 TBSP of apple cider vinegar and gently stir.
  • Set the temp to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 6-24 hours.
  • Optional: for a more flavorful bone broth, add flavors of choice such as herbs, lemon, mushrooms, carrots, celery, and dried cranberries before simmering. Add salt and pepper to taste.
