When I first started on the AIP Paleo Diet/Lifestyle, one of the first things I learned to do was make Bone Broth.
There are so many amazing health benefits of consuming Bone Broth. Not only healing Leaky Gut but also a ton more. Read here about the benefits of bone broth and why you should be drinking it every day.
What I learned is that you take good quality bones, preferably from organic, pastured, grass-fed animals & simmer for 24-48 hours either on the stove or in a crockpot. I decided to cook mine in the crockpot.
After doing this for a while, it was great, but I didn’t always like having to wait up to 2 days, plus the house always seemed to smell. That’s when I heard about the Instant Pot!
What a life changer this was! The Instant Pot is an electric pressure cooker & you can cook bone broth in 2-4 hours.
Well, enough said, I went on Amazon & bought one.
Best thing I ever did. So far, it gels everytime. Sometimes with the old method, it wouldn’t, so this was another huge plus!
I save my leftover bones in the freezer in a gallon Ziplock freezer bag until it is full. I also purchase bones from my local farmer where I buy my meat.
I save any of the discards that I cut off of onions, celery & herbs & freeze them until time to make bone broth. It makes a great base for soups & stews.
Then I add 1-2 Tbs. of ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar).
Set the Instant Pot to manual for 2hrs (120 min.) for chicken, or 4 hrs for beef/pork. I personally like a mixture of bones.
That’s it, folks! Pour yourself a cup, add a little sea salt & enjoy!
- About 2 lbs or 1-gallon ziplock bag of good quality bones
- Filtered water
- 2 Tbs ACV
- optional – bay leaf(s) herbs, onion, carrot, celery
- Add bones (& any optional ingredients) to Instant Pot
- Add ACV
- Add filtered water (I use a Berkey)
- Put the lid on securely & turn on manual for 120 min for chicken. If you have beef/pork, run it twice (4 hrs/240 min).
- After it has finished & pressure has been released (I let it release on it’s on) then let cool for 30 min or so & fill jars.
- When completely cool, store in the fridge.
