- 2 pounds or more of bones from a healthy source. Organic grass fed for beef. Whole Foods carries them in their frozen section. For chicken, I use rotisserie carcass we've cooked. I just put them in the freezer until I have 2.
- 1 onion
- 2 carrots
- 2 celery stalks
- 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 Tablespoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon peppercorns
- 2 cloves of garlic for the last 30 minutes of cooking
- 1 gallon of water per 2 pounds of bones
If you are using raw bones, especially beef bones, it improves flavor to roast them in the oven first. I place them in a roasting pan and roast for 30 minutes at 350. If you are using scrap bones you've saved in the freezer you can skip this step.
When cool enough, store in glass mason jars in the fridge for up to 5 days, or freeze for later use.
This is great to drink warm during the winter months or to use in soups. I love to have a warm cup with my breakfast!
Give this a try, your soups will thank you for it! ;)
