Bone broth has been trending in the nutrition and skin care world for quite some time now and we can see why. This coveted warm liquid broth is rich in collagen and amino acids which help to boost the skin’s own collagen production. Those who sip on it regularly claim it’s the fountain of youth helping to smooth the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Bone broth contains an abundance of minerals and vitamins that help support skin health so it’s no wonder why it’s desired by so many skin care professionals and connoisseurs. It is recommended to drink 8oz per day for best results and purchasing a high quality pre-made broth container averages about $5 per day. Having a bone broth habit isn’t exactly budget friendly so many people choose to make their own. Bone broth is exactly what it sounds like - broth made of bones. Simmering bones into liquid is a long process (12 hours on a stovetop) so let’s get right into it and see what it takes to make this at home.
Homemade Bone Broth Recipe
- Beef bones (grass-fed is best) ask your butcher for the best broth bones
- Bay leaves
- Whole black peppercorns
- Whole star anise
- Cinnamon sticks
- Apple cider vinegar
- 2 Stock pots
- Roasting Pans
- Wire mesh strainer
Step 1: Blanch the bones - boil for 15-20 minutes then rinse with water.
Step 2: Roast the bones and vegetables at 450º F for 30 minutes. Toss and roast for an additional 15-30 minutes.
Step 3: Transfer bones to a stock pot, you will need 2 for this recipe. Fill with 12 cups of water and make sure there is one inch of water above the bones and vegetables. Bring to a low boil and simmer for 8-12 hours, occasionally skimming excess fat and foam off the top. Make sure not to leave this unattended or cooking overnight.
Step 4: Strain the bones with a wire strainer and for extra clear broth, strain a second time with a cheesecloth. Let everything cool and then store in airtight containers in the refrigerator. The broth will keep for 4-6 days or if frozen, 4-6 months.
