Bone broth is one of my favorite foods. Great for gut healing, helps the body to fight infections and inflammation, strengthen bones and is said to help hair and nails grow (source). And every grandmother knows that a mug of chicken bone broth is just what you need when you aren’t feeling well. Not to mention using bone broth in your recipes is a delicious option too.
I go through times that I sip on bone broth daily and other times where I only get it once a week. But no matter how often you have it, bone broth should be part of your diet; and making it could never be easier!
I have 3 ways for you to make bone broth: traditional made in a stock pot, crock pot (I use an 8 quart) and Instant Pot methods (or slow, medium, fast). The first, traditional stock pot, bone broth will take a day or 2 to make and requires you watch it closely. The crock pot version doesn’t shave time off but you won’t have to watch it as closely. And with the bone broth with the Instant Pot method will be ready in about 2 hours! Lately the IP method has become a staple around here but I think it is good to know how to make the traditional and crock pot method too.
For this post I am going to be showing you a chicken bone broth but you could do this with beef bones as well. It is recommended that you roast your beef bones prior to making the broth for best flavor and use of the marrow….
