Episode 6: Bone Broth, the Ancient NEW Trend

Recipe: Bone Broth

Are you wasting your money on Collagen and Glutamine?

Well, put down your wallet because it’s sitting right in front of you… and you’re throwing it away!

Bone Broth is an ancient practice which has recently come back into fashion- OH YEAH!

We call it “liquid gold” because you can literally turn your kitchen scraps into a nutritious healing golden broth! 

Bone broth helps heal gut related issues like Crohn’s, IBS and auto-immune disorders as it restores and rebuilds the gut lining. This will also help with GERD and Acid Reflux!

The collagen and minerals in bone broth rebuild cartilage and promote healthy skin regeneration, making your skin supple and joints feeling younger.

Now who couldn’t use some of that?!

Add bone broth to your soups, grains, or risottos.

Crock-Pot Bone Broth

  • Servings: 4 qts
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print
Bones that are roasted or have already been cooked allow you to extract more collegian and nutrients. If they are raw, you can place them on a sheet pan and roast them in the oven. Roasted bones also impart a richer flavor to the broth.


  • 1-2 lbs Pasture-raised Chicken or Turkey bones (leftovers 🙂 )
  • 1 Onion, halved & skin on
  • 3 Carrots, whole & skin on
  • 3 Celery stalks, halved
  • 6 Thyme sprigs
  • 1 Garlic head, horizontally halved
  • 8 Peppercorns, whole
  • 1/4 bunch Parsley, keep stems on
  • 4 qts Filtered water


  1. Place bones, onions, carrots, celery, thyme, garlic, peppercorns, and parsley in a large stock pot or crock-pot. Fill pot with water until bones are covered.
  2. Cover pot with a lid and place over a low flame or turn the crock-pot to low.
  3. Let the bone broth cook for 12-24 hours. The longer you can cook the bones, the more nutrients and collagen you will extract.
  4. When finished, remove the bones and large pieces of vegetables and discard them. Then pour the broth through a fine mesh strainer so you are left with a clear golden broth.
  5. Place in containers and if freezing- don’t fill to the top! Broth can stay frozen for 3-4 months!
  6. Cheers!

  1. Love watching you two! Cara, you crack me up! Another delightful and very informative episode! You ladies rock!

    Love ya,


  2. I love this episode! It included everything I needed to know on how to prepare the broth and the benefits of it!
    My natural food pet store actually recommended for my 13 year old dog who is having skin trouble! A little bit in his food at mealtime!
    Thank you!

    1. Yes JoAnn! Good point and we will bring this up on our live episode Q&A. We both use bone broth for our furry friends. In fact, my yellow lab lived until 16-1/2 years old and I truly believe the bone broth kept him strong and healthy until the end! I still use bone broth with Patches who is just hitting 16-1/2 yo now and still going strong! Thanks for the feedback.

  3. Loved your presentation on making bone broth. I would add one more tip. Do not allow a rolling simmer. Instead, adjust your heat so that the broth is literally just sending up bubbles.
    Once the bubbles are established, let it go for 16-24 hours. NEVER STIR IT. The bubbles and no-stir technique will give you a beautiful clear broth.
    Keep up the good work!
