Easy Bone Broth Recipe Slow Cooker
I have to admit, I’ve fallen behind on keeping my freezer stocked with bone broth. Lately I’ve been relying on gluten-free bouillon cubes but the flavour and the nutritional benefits are inferior. Homemade broth is a great source of gelatin. Gelatin contains dietary collagen that helps support your skin, nails, joints and digestive tract. Gluten-free bouillon cubes work in a pinch but try and keep some bone broth on hand.
Making broth is so easy so I’m not sure what my excuse is. It’s time to pull a packet of bones out of the freezer, give them a rinse and throw them into one of my favourite kitchen appliances, the slow cooker.
All you need to do is cover the bones with water, pour in a couple splashes of apple cider vinegar and some sea salt. That’s it. Turn the slow cooker on high setting until the water boils and then switch to low setting for at least another 12 hours. Fresh stock goes bad quickly so freeze any extra that you are not going to use.
I swear you will notice the difference the next time you make soup using bone broth. You will taste the richness. If you are short on time you can always find some at a Farmer’s Market to stock your freezer with. Making it yourself is way cheaper.
