About the Recipe
If you’re a vegan or vegetarian then this post is not for you, sorry. We’re about to talk boiling animal bones.
Making bone broth is a ritual we’ve taken part in for thousands of years. Now, people prefer to it as the base of soups, stews and gravies. What most people don’t realise is that you can reap a whole host of other benefits from simply drinking it alone.
This simple little meaty broth can be consumed at any time of the day. Pair it with your breakfast instead of a coffee or add it to soups or stews later on in the day. This warming drink will improve your health in many ways while tasting delicious all the while.

- Leftover bones
- Herbs (to taste)
- A large pot (or slow cooker)
- A Sieve
- Stick all of the ingredients into your pot or slow cooker. I recommend using one liter of water per chicken. If using another bones such as cow bones, cover the bones then add a little more. You can always add more water throughout the process.
- Leave to boil for 4-48 hours. The longer you boil the more flavour and nutrition will come out of the bones.
- When the broth is done, sieve out the chucks and drink to your heart's content!
