Bone Broth: How to Make it for Practically Nothing it in 3 Easy Steps!

Maybe you've been reading about how great bone broth is for your health.

Maybe you saw this book by Sally Fallon, extolling the myriad benefits of bone broth for pretty much every part of the body.

It's great for hair, skin and nails; it's like a multi-vitamin and mineral supplement all rolled into one, and of course it's got plenty of calcium and is great for bones, growing and already grown!

It's even great for healing digestive issues, and with the research linking digestive health with overall immunity and even with brain health, that's something to get excited about!

So how does one make this magical health elixir, you ask, and what can you do with it once you do?

Well, here at VitaClay we love our bone broth. I make it at my house at least once a week.

I keep a batch (several jars-full) in the fridge and add it to pretty much everything savory. Sometimes I even drink it from a mug with a little real salt!

It can also be frozen if you want to keep it much longer than a couple of weeks, or just make a really huge batch.

Here are step-by-step instructions for how to make your very own bone broth at home:

  • Gather the bones
  • Round up bones from bone-in meat you've eaten at meals, or buy soup bones from the grocery store or local farm (soup bones usually have lots of gelatin-making cartilage and even some meat that can be eaten with the soup)
  • If you want to save up bones from meals, just throw them into a ziplock in the freezer until you're ready to use them.
  • You can also add veggie scraps from onions, carrots, celery, or anything else to add flavor and depth to your broth (onion skins and eggshells can even be used to increase nutrition!)
  • Use about 1 large soup bone or 2-3 smaller bones for each 2-3 cups of water.
  • Add your bones to the VitaClay pot, fill it up to the top with filtered water, and set it on “soup” for as long as you can (oval models will go 4 or 5 hours at a time, and round models can go up to 12).
  • It's best to cook your broth for about 24 hours to get the most benefit from the bones. So when the cooking cycle is done, start another one.

The great thing about VitaClay is that you can leave the house or go to sleep while it's cooking—no more slaving over a hot stove!

So try making bone broth today. You won't regret it!
