Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 hours
Total Time 20 hours 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2-2 1/2 lbs chicken or beef bones
  • 1 medium onion cut into 4 wedges
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic smashed
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • 2-3 thin slices of fresh ginger peeled and sliced to about the size of a quarter
  • 1/3 cup dried mushrooms
  • 3-4 peppercorns
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • 3 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • sea salt to taste
  • 8-10 cups water

Instructions

  1. Place the bones you will use on a cooking sheet and roast in the oven at 350 for about 15 minutes. This will help bring out the flavor as they cook in the Crock Pot.

  2. While the bones are roasting, clean all vegetables. Peel and cut the onion and ginger. I prefer to leave the greens on the celery stalks.

  3. After 15 minutes, use a pair of tongs to transfer the bones to the Crock Pot.

  4. Layer all the vegetables, mushrooms, bay leaf and peppercorns on top.

  5. Add the peppercorns and Apple Cider Vinegar.

  6. Pour 8-10 cups of water over the top. Just enough to cover the bones and vegetables but not to the top of the Crock Pot.

  7. Add sea salt to taste.

  8. Cover and cook on low at least 10 hours and up to 20 hours.

  9. After cooking, let the broth cool for an hour.

  10. Once cooled off, set a large pot in the sink and using a mesh strainer, slowly ladle or pour the contents of the bone broth through the strainer, into the pot.

  11. The bone broth will filter through the strainer.

  12. Finally, from the pot, you can use your Crock Pot bone broth immediately or save portions for future use. 

Recipe Notes

The broth will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 or 4 days. Also, you can also portion your bone broth into freezer bags or freezer safe containers and it will last for a long time. Always be sure to label the containers before you freeze them.
