Bone broth is as simple as simmering bones, vegetables, and seasonings for a long time, then straining and serving! Don’t be concerned about the long cook time, though. You can cook bone broth a few hours at a time, refrigerating in between cooking, until you reach 12-24 hours total of cooking. The longer you cook your bone broth, the more flavorful and gelatinous it will be!

This easy bone broth recipe requires just a few ingredients and lots of hands-off time for a hearty, comforting broth!
- 2 lb chicken or beef bones
- 1 onion peeled and quartered
- 2 carrots roughly chopped
- 2 stalks celery roughly chopped
- 12 cups water
- 2 bay leaves
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place bones, onion, carrots, and celery on a large roasting pan. Roast for 30 minutes, until browned. Add the bone mixture and any juices to a large pot or slow cooker with the water, bay leaves, salt, peppercorns, and apple cider vinegar. If cooking on the stove, bring the mixture to a boil, then cover and reduce to a simmer and cook for 12-24 hours (you can do this in multiple batches to avoid leaving the stove on unattended). If using a slow cooker, simply cook the mixture on low for the same amount of time. Strain the broth to remove bones and vegetables. Pour into containers and refrigerate to cool. Remove solidified fat from the top, and enjoy!
