  • Add bones & vinegar to a crock-pot and fill with water and vegetable scraps, chopped vegetables, peppercorns, herbs, etc.

  • Remove from heat and skim off any white foam. Strain and transfer to containers. Refrigerate for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 6 months.


*All you really must have is bones, vinegar, and filtered water.
*The vegetable scraps/chopped vegetables, peppercorns, herbs, etc. are completely optional. I usually just save vegetable peels and scraps, freeze them and keep them for the next time I make broth.
