How to Make the Perfect Bone Broth

Matt Whitmore from Fitter Food explains how to create this easy to make, nutritional super food! Bone broth is a frankly awesome way to consume a rich source of bone supporting minerals including magnesium, calcium, phosphorus. Check out this Fitter Food step-by-step video guide…

Step 1: Add the bones, filtered water, apple cider vinegar, carrots, onions, garlic, fresh herbs, salt and pepper to your slow cooker. Quite simply you can add anything that takes your fancy which adds nutrients and flavour. Pour enough water to cover the bones completely but the more the better.

Step 2:  Cook on a low heat for anywhere between 24 and 48 hours. For big marrow bones we like to do at least 48 hours and for chicken or turkey then 24 hours is normally fine.

Step 3: Depending which bones you have used you could remove and give them to your dog! If you’ve used poultry bones then they should be soft enough for you to blend these into your soup, don’t waste them as they are full of goodness.

Step 4: Pour the broth through a sieve to catch the bits into a large bowl, the fat will separate and set on top. 

Step 5: Remove the set fat on top and use to roast potatoes and vegetables. There tends not to be much separation with poultry bones but you will get a good helping from beef bones.
