I love when healthy things become trendy.  Bone broth is not just delicious it is incredibly healing to your body. You can read more about benefits of bone broth here. I began making it 3 years ago with chicken feet and elk bones that I begged my husband to save from his hunt.  It has become one of those recipes I make without measurements. I just throw a little of this and a bit of that in a pot and voila!

I have heard a few people say they didn’t like the taste after making it.  My reaction is very similar to when people tell me they don’t drink coffee! If you don’t crave a big cup of broth on a cold day, then use the broth in soups, stews, mashed potatoes, pastas and gravies. Your recipes will taste so much better, I promise. Both my children love to drink bone broth as a meal- Mom Win!

The first recipe is for Chicken and the second recipe is for Elk/Beef/Venison

[recipe title=”Homeacre Chicken Bone Broth” servings=”12+” time=”3-24 hours” difficulty=”medium”]

Ingredients

*Organic ingredients are best!

Directions

Rinse chicken feet in cold water and remove any skin or shells on the talons that may have been left on.  Put bones in a crock pot or pressure cooker.  Add the ACV and a few cups of water.  This helps draws the minerals out of the bones. You are supposed to let it sit for 30 minutes so I let them sit while I prep the rest of the ingredients.  Add all remaining ingredients and fill your pot with water to right below the fill line.

Crock pot: Bring to boil then simmer for 24 hours stirring just a few times.

Instant Pot: Set your pot to Seal. Press Manual and add 120 minutes. Let the pressure release on its own.

When it’s all done, I strain it with a mesh strainer into a pot then pour it into several half-gallon mason jars. Let cool. You can scoop off the fat that solidifies on the top.  Store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
