With just a few easy steps, you can make your own flavorful and nutritious bone broth right at home. Bone broth is a powerhouse of health benefits. Rich in minerals, vitamins, and essential amino acids. The protein and collagen-packed gelatin can help improve bone and joint health, support the digestive and immune system, aid in maintaining healthy skin, hair, and nails, and improve sleep quality. This incredible broth is pleasantly satisfying and a great addition to any diet.
Serving size: 1 - 3 lb bag can make at least 2 batches of 5 cups of Bone Broth.
Getting Started: Our how-to utilizes an Instant Pot for ease. Make sure to also have a colander or mesh strainer as well as freezer jars or storage containers if you plan to store for later use.
Preferred seasoning: Season with sea salt and whole peppercorns. Add in aromatics (garlic, onions, fresh herbs, bay leaves, lemongrass, ginger), savory vegetables (carrots, celery, leeks), and a couple tablespoons of apple cider vinegar—to help pull out important nutrients from the bones.

- Preheat oven 400°
- Place bones on a large baking tray. Consider roasting 1 large onion and one whole garlic bulb to add to broth.
- Drizzle olive oil and then season lightly with salt. Roast for 35 minutes.
- Add all ingredients to the pot (in our how-to we added celery, carrots, bay leaves, rosemary and thyme in this step). Pour a little water on the baking tray, scrape any flavorful bits into the pot, close the lid, set on pressure cook at high pressure for 2 hours plus full natural release—45 minutes.
- Open the lid carefully. Remove bones and set aside. Strain broth through a colander or mesh and discard all solids. Set aside to cool down completely. Once cool, pour into jars and store in the fridge.
- Bones can be reused to make a second batch of bone broth. Place bones in the Instant Pot with 6 cups of water and set on high pressure for 1 hour with natural release. This will make about 5 cups. *This batch will be less concentrated than the first batch but will still have a gelatin consistency. It’s optional to add aromatics and vegetables for extra flavor.
- No Instant Pot, no problem. Place all ingredients in a large pot or slow cooker. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to low, cover with lid, and cook for up to 24 hours. The longer it cooks the more flavorful and nutritious the broth will be.
