Homemade bone broth

I’ve always wanted to try and make my own bone broth but for whatever reason found myself intimidated by the process.

Well let me just tell you there is really no process and it couldn’t be simpilar.

All you need is about 6 beef bones you can find them in some grocery stores in the meat section or if you have a butcher ask there.

On a cookie sheet lay the bones along with 4 cut up carrots, 3 ribs of celery and a whole small can of organic tomato paste along with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Roast this for about an hour at 350F.  After that transfer everything to a crock pot and fill with 8-10 cups of water, 2 bay leaves, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon of thyme, salt and pepper.  Cook on high for about 4-6 hours.

Afterwards strain off the broth and you have a delicious healthy bone broth.  This can be frozen for later or used right away.  If you plan on using it the same day or next save those good roasted vegetables for a soup and your puppies will be happy for the bones.
