Bone Broth Recipe 🦴

Updated: Sep 25, 2023

I know loads of people think making your own bone broth is too hard basket, but cooking for me is joyful and relaxing so I love it… but also in a time when there’s a bit of a cost of living crunch, this is a great way to save money on your food shop by using what’s already in your pantry.

Every week I buy a whole, free range, organic chook and roast it in my Baccarat air fryer, which is possibly the best purchase I have ever made. It has made cooking with a toddler 1000 times easier, nothing ever gets burnt as it turns itself off (game changer) and I now have two ovens so can do way more food prep at one time. There are loads of great air fryers by other respected brands out there too, I can just only speak on mine, and we bought the 9L Baccarat and I can’t recommend it highly enough.

The cost difference between buying an already roasted free range chicken for $17 versus buying my raw, organic, free range chicken at the shops for about $7 to roast it myself means a saving of $520 across the year... which is insane! It's made me take a look at other things we're spending on in our household where we could save and put that money to better use elsewhere too.

I use every bit of this chook and once I've pulled the meat off to use in meals across the week, I use the bones and carcass to make up bone broth. I usually time this for just before my weekly farmers market shop and use whatever veggies are left in my fridge so they don't go to waste. So super sustainable as well ✔️

This week happened to be carrot, zucchini, asparagus, celery, spring onion plus 1/4 cup of organic apple cider vinegar, fresh lemon juice, herbs - which you can have a play with as to what flavour you want, I used fresh garlic, bay leaves, oregano, parsley, rosemary, thyme for this one as its just what I had in my kitchen at the time, but turmeric, sage, pepper and ginger are all great additions too - and water.

How to…

• Pull the meat off your roasted chook and set the carcass and other bones aside

Note: to make a beef bone broth recipe, source some organic, grass fed beef marrow bones and the rest of the recipe remains the same

• Add the veggies into your slow cooker first, then the chicken carcass and bones of the roast chook, pour over your lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, herbs and water until the veggies and bones are completely covered

• Set your slow cooker to low and cook for 24-48 hours, I tend to prefer 48 hours for a richer broth

• Remove the chunky veggie ingredients and place to one side, and what's left of the carcass and bones in the bin

Note: I whizz the bone broth infused, slow cooked veggies up in my Nutribullet and keep aside for a gravy base to make for later (nothing gets wasted!)

• Strain the broth into another bowl or container catching any sediment in the strainer

• I then pour some of the broth into some handy silicone, large ice cube trays that I pick up from Kmart and I add these to cooking at later dates

• I also keep some fresh for meals this week or as a nourishing broth to drink
