Bone Broth Recipe

If you are looking for a nutritional powerhouse? Dive into my blog article and discover the myriad benefits of bone broth.

Ready to don your chef's hat? There's a world of bone broths waiting for you - from chicken, beef, fish, to even powder-based varieties. These are not just for you, but also for your fluffy friends!

Creating a classic broth recipe is easy.  You just need bones, fat, acid/vinegar, water, meat, and vegetables.  Want to make the most out of your broth? A dash of raw apple cider vinegar or lemon juice will help you extract minerals from the bones effectively.

So, get adventurous in the kitchen and give yourself and your dog's health a boost with a warm bowl of bone broth.

Here's a quick rundown on how to make bone broth for your pets and yourself:

  1. Place bones in a large stock pot or slow cooker, cover with water, and add two tablespoons of acid/apple cider vinegar.  Tip: I use my slow cooker and place it outside for 24 hours as the smell is strong and can take over your entire house. 

  2. Fill the pot with water, leaving room for boiling.

  3. Cook slow and low for 24 hours for chicken bones, and 48 hours for beef bones.

  4. Add a cup of vegetables for extra nutrients.  (Try red cabbage, garlic, carrot, Brussel sprouts, shitake mushrooms, turmeric, ginger, parsley)

  5. After cooking, strain the liquid to remove all the bones and cool.  I place it in the fridge overnight so the layer of fat will harden on top. Discard this layer before serving.

  6. Store your broth in the fridge for up to four days, or freeze for later use. 

How to give to your dog:

  1. Scrap fat off the top

  2. Mix the bone broth into your dog’s food as is, no need to heat up unless you want to

  3. Start at lower amounts and build up to the below as nutrient dense broth may need a week to build up tolerance to.
