How to Make Bone Broth

Making homemade slow cooker bone broth is a great way to add nutrients to your diet! It's also a no-waste situation too as you can use nothing more than scraps. If you don't have enough scraps at any one time just toss your leftovers in a freezer bag. When it's full, toss it in the crockpot and proceed per the recipe!

  • 6 to 8 cups of bones cartridge and leftover meats
  • 2-4 cups vegetables of your choice optional but tasty
  • 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar per cup of water
  • Enough water to cover everything


  • Toss the ingredients in the crockpot and cover with water.
  • Bring the crockpot to a boil (this might take using the high setting on some crock pots), then turn to low.
  • Simmer for 12 to 72 hours. The longer you cook it, the more nutrients and flavor it will have.
  • Store in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days or freeze in small canisters, freezer bags or silicone molds.
