The Secret to Grandma's Chicken Soup
Homemade bone broth instructions.
  • Bones. These can be raw with meat on them, or cooked bones that you've already ate the meat from. Even if we've put sauce on the meat I'll still use the bones afterwards.
  • Water - Just enough to cover the bones
  • Vinegar - 2 tablespoon
  1. Place the bones in a pan or crock pot and add just enough water to cover the bones.
  2. Add the vinegar.
  3. Simmer for at least 6 hours.
  4. Pay attention to the water level as it can evaporate over time. Add water as needed.
  5. Denser bones need longer times - up to 24 hours.
  6. Fish out the bones and and strain/separate the broth
  7. I often freeze what I cannot drink in 2-3 days.
  8. Salt your broth to taste when you are ready to drink it.
