Recipe Corner: Gut Healing Bone Broth

Bone broth has been prized for its health benefits for centuries, and for good reason. Rich in nutrients like collagen, gelatin, and amino acids, bone broth is a nourishing elixir that supports gut health, joint health, and overall well-being. Making your own bone broth at home is simple and cost-effective, and it's a wonderful addition to your diet, especially if you're looking to support your gut health. Here's a basic recipe for gut-healing bone broth:


- 2-3 pounds of beef or chicken bones (ideally from grass-fed, pasture-raised animals)

- 2 carrots, chopped

- 2 celery stalks, chopped

- 1 onion, quartered

- 4 cloves of garlic, smashed

- 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar

- A handful of fresh parsley

- A few sprigs of fresh thyme

- Salt and pepper to taste

- Water, enough to cover the bones


1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Place the bones on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for 30-45 minutes, or until they are well-browned and caramelized.

2. Transfer the roasted bones to a large stockpot or slow cooker. Add the carrots, celery, onion, garlic, apple cider vinegar, parsley, thyme, salt, and pepper.

3. Cover the bones with water, making sure they are fully submerged. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and let the broth simmer, uncovered, for at least 8-12 hours (or up to 24 hours for chicken bones and 48 hours for beef bones). Skim off any foam or impurities that rise to the surface.

4. Once the broth is done simmering, remove it from the heat and let it cool slightly. Strain the broth through a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth into a clean container, discarding the solids.

5. Allow the broth to cool completely, then transfer it to jars or containers for storage. Store the bone broth in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or freeze it for longer storage.


- You can customize your bone broth by adding additional vegetables, herbs, or spices to suit your taste preferences.

- For maximum nutrient extraction, add a splash of apple cider vinegar to the water when you start simmering the broth. The acidity helps break down the bones and release their minerals into the broth.

- Drink bone broth on its own as a nourishing beverage, or use it as a base for soups, stews, sauces, and other recipes.

Making your own gut-healing bone broth at home is a simple and rewarding process that can help support your overall health and well-being.
