Ditch anemic store-bought bone broths this cold and flu season. This collagen-rich, magical elixir is our first line of defense to combat whatever ails us. It’s also a great sipping tonic to soothe the gut. Not to mention, it is the secret ingredient to all of our luxurious sauces and soups. Don’t have an Instant Pot? Not to worry, you can make this recipe in your slow cooker or even simmer it on your stovetop. Best of all, this recipe is fool-proof as it is a mere suggestion -- a no-recipe recipe, if you will. Use whatever herbs you have on hand and any variation of vegetables, you really can’t go wrong.
1. Layer vegetables, bones, herbs, peppercorns, and herbs into the Instant Pot (or slow cooker).
2. Add purified/filtered water until it reaches the fill line (or until your slow cooker is about ¾ full), about 4-5 cups water.
3. Make sure the seal of the lid and the rim of the insert is dry before placing the lid on your Instant Pot and locking the lid into place. (This will ensure a proper seal.)
4. Toggle vent valve to ‘Sealing.’
5. Select the ‘Manual,’ ‘High-Pressure,’ or ‘Soup/Broth’ setting (depending on your model) and adjust the cook time to a minimum of 120 minutes (double that, time allowing, for extra collagen extraction).
6. When time is up, allow pressure to release naturally. This can take upwards of 20 minutes. Before removing the lid, release any residual pressure by manually toggling the vent valve.
7. Carefully remove the insert and allow the broth to cool until you are safely able to strain the broth through a mesh liner and into a large bowl or individual glass jars. (We recommend removing the larger pieces with tongs first to avoid splash back when straining.)
8. Salt to taste if using straight away. If preparing for future use, we recommend seasoning as needed. Pour into jars and refrigerate for up to 5 days, or freeze (for up to 3 months) for later use.
We like to collect leftover bones in an ever-growing bag in our freezer (this goes for vegetable trimmings as well). That way, we’re able to have an unending supply of broth ingredients at-the-ready at a moment’s notice.
