February 28, 2024

This is my tried and true recipe for how to make the most collagen rich bone broth. You may have stumbled upon the trending health food that is Bone Broth. Today I am going to share how to make bone broth at home. It takes some time to simmer but the result is completely worth it. Jars of gut healing broth filled with collagen, vitamins and minerals. Bone broth is a traditional food that has been made for years. In the last decade or so, modern wellness gurus have brought bone broth back to its former glory. It contains a plethora of health benefits and has a special affinity for healing the gut. If you want to learn how to make this world renowned superfood, I’ve shared my recipe and all the tips and tricks to ensure you get the highest yield of collagen and nutrients in your broth.

When making bone broth I like to opt for beef bones and chicken feet for their nutrient density. Beef bones are high in trace minerals and magnesium. They yield high amounts of fat soluble vitamins like Vitamin A and Vitamin K2 from the bone marrow found within them. They also provide a rich amount of collagen. Chicken feet are made primarily of connective tissue, bone, skin, and cartilage which means they provide incredibly high amounts of collagen and gelatin to the broth. The higher the gelatin, the better the broth. You will know if your broth contains high amounts of gelatin if it jiggles after cooling down. That is the sign to a great nutrient dense bone broth with plenty of health benefits.

That being said, there are so many other bones you can use for broth. The easiest and most accessible way to make bone broth is with leftover chicken carcass from family dinner. Since it’s already been roasted during the cooking process, you simply swap the chicken carcass for the bones and chicken feet found in my recipe below.

Rice and pasta taste delicious when you swap out the boiling water for broth instead. It adds a lot of nutrients to dinner time too.
