Homemade Beef Broth, It's EASIER Than You Think!




I have something embarassing to tell you.


For years now, I have not been taking my soup bones, when picking up my beef from the butcher. I never knew what to do with them so I just had them used for bones to give my dogs.


A funny thing happens though as you age, you change! The things that weren't important to me, or I wasn't aware of then, have become more important to me now.


For starters, it has become very important to me, in honor of the beef that feeds us to utilize as much from the beef as I can to minimize waste. Secondly, I'm trying to bring back traditions of learning skills of doing/making things for myself and my family rather than buying everything.


Beef Bone Broth has many healing properties too:

BENEFITS OF BEEF BONE BROTH (Adapted from Boots & Hooves Homestead)

Rich in Nutrients: Bone broth has an array of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. A few key ones being calcium, magnesium, and potassium. It also has amino acids, collagen for joint health and skin elasticity

Immune Support: The nutrients in bone broth can contribute to overall immune system function. (bootsandhooveshomestead.com)

Hydration: Provides fluids and electrolytes for maintaining proper hydration, especially when under the weather.

You know me, I'm a big fan of setting and forgetting a recipe. Put in the ingredients in the crock pot on Friday, let it set and cook til Sunday. The crock pot does the work, and you've got some fine homemade bone broth in return.


If you're in need of beef bones to make your own broth, I have some for you for $5/lb email me at weilerbeef@gmail.com and I'll set some aside for you!




Beef Bone Broth (adapted from Boots & Hooves Homestead)


Ingredients


  • 2 lbs Weiler Beef Bones

  • 2 Carrots rough chopped

  • 1 onion peeled and halved

  • 2 stalks of celery rough chopped

  • 2-3 cloves of garlic or minced garlic

  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • additional herbs to your taste (optional)


Directions


  1. Add bones to your crock pot. Add apple cider vinegar. Cover with water and let sit for 30 min.

  2. Add carrots, onion, & celery (DO NOT add in garlic or herbs yet) to crock pot and fill with water. Try to get crock pot as full as you can without it spilling over. Set to "high" until simmering.

  3. Then set crock pot to "low" and let it do its thing for 48 hours. Make sure to check on it periodically and add more water as needed.

  4. With the last 30 minutes remaining, add in the garlic and herbs if you're using.

  5. Allow to cool down before storing. Use a fine sieve or cheese cloth to strain your broth.

  6. This should make approx. one gallon of broth.

  7. It will keep in the fridge for 1 week only. If you don't intend to use it before one week, freeze it in bags or juice bottles.


Comment and let me know How will you be using your bone broth? Or do you have any traditions/experiences of healing bone broth maybe from your Grandma? I just love hearing stories and remedies like that:)
