What Type of Bones to Use

Beef Bones

Beef bones are a popular choice for bone broth. They are rich in collagen, which turns into gelatin when cooked, contributing to the broth’s rich texture. Marrow bones, knuckles, and even feet are excellent for broth-making.

Chicken Bones

Chicken bones, including the carcass of a roasted chicken, wings, or necks, make a lighter, yet flavorful broth. They are also a great source of collagen.

Pork Bones

Pork bones are less commonly used but can create a delicious broth. They lend a distinct flavor different from beef or chicken and are often used in Asian cuisines.

Mixed Bones

For a more complex flavor profile, consider using a mix of different animal bones. This blend offers a unique taste and an array of nutrients.

How to Homemade Bone Broth

Storing homemade bone broth is straightforward and essential for maintaining its freshness and nutritional value. Once you’ve made your broth and allowed it to cool, strain it to remove the solid bits, leaving just the liquid. Pour this liquid into airtight containers or jars.

If you plan to use the broth within a week, store it in the refrigerator. For longer storage, freeze the broth in your chosen containers, or use ice cube trays for smaller, easily thawed portions. When freezing in jars, make sure to leave some space at the top as the broth will expand when frozen.
