- To make meat stock/bone broth take your whole chicken, leg of beef or lamb, or any kind of joint or meat on a bone, place this in a crock pot or a stock pot, and add boiling water to cover.
- Allow it to simmer for 12 hours minimum for smaller bones like chicken and 24 hours min for larger animals like beef bones (minimum).
- Optional: you can add vegetables, vegetable scraps, or herbs to improve flavour.
- Apple cider vinegar or lemon can also be added to help draw nutrients out of the bones and also improve flavour.
- Scale the recipe depending on how much liquid you would like, it does keep well in the freezer so larger batches can save a lot of time.
- if you have histamine or glutamate issues, do not add lemon or Vinegar, also consider cooking for less time (4h maximum)
- If the bone broth is too powerful or doesn't agree with you, try the same recipe but replace the bones/carcass with muscle meats instead.
