Homemade bone both is a cinch to make in the slow cooker. Full of flavor, nutrients and love!
Recipe type: soup
Cuisine: American
  • Roasted beef bones, ham shanks, chicken bones or bones, skin, and juices of rotisserie chicken
  • 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar*
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tsp. peppercorns
  • 1 sprig thyme or 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 sprig rosemary or 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • assorted vegetable peelings, onion skins, leek tops, mushroom stems
  1. Add all ingredients to a slow cooker (aka Crock Pot), bring to a boil, turn heat to low and simmer for 12-24 hours.
  2. Pour broth through a sieve (may line with cheesecloth if you'd like a very pure broth).
  3. Discard everything but broth.
  4. Store in quart jars in the fridge for up to one week, or for longer term storage, pour into pint size jars, leaving one inch space at the top and freeze.
* No need to spend the extra money on raw apple cider vinegar as it's going to get thoroughly cooked anyway.

** I use coriander seeds in the video, however to keep life simple and inexpensive I recommend looking to see what you've already got in your spice cabinet. Smell various herbs and spices and toss in the smells that go together.
