My bone broth is a bit different:

gather GOOD bones, grass fed/free from added hormones if possible:

beef knuckle bones, neck bones, tail bones (the knuckle bones often have ligaments attached). Ask your butcher to cut the knuckle bones in half if they aren't already

beef ligaments if you can get them (my local butcher carries them frozen)

pig feet

chicken feet (they're creepy! but great for collagen)

any leftover bones from cooking in the past months that have been frozen

Roast the bones in a flat pan until they have a nice dark brown color--I do it at a lowish temp of about 350.

Dump them all into a big pot, cover with water
add a couple tablespoon of apple cider vinegar


I skim the foam and fat off while cooking. It doesn't smell very good while simmering because the fat oxidizes. Don't worry--it'll taste good in the end.

Simmer for 2 to 3 days

Add in some veggies during the last twelve hours of simmer (I use carrots, celery, onions)

After simmering the veggies for about 12 hours, I chill it. Then remove the fat (this sounds like heresy, but the fat is oxidized and doesn't taste good any more).

Put it back on the stove and boil it to condense it by about half. Less volume is easier to store!

Then it pour it into individual serving containers and freeze.

I use it for cooking, or just pop a frozen brothcicle into a mug and microwave it. Use it for a soup base and add more water if you don't want it so intense.

Add butter and salt to taste when you use it.

This broth tends to be very collagen dense when it cools--jello. That's what I like about it, although I will still sometimes add a spoon of unflavored gelatin if I'm feeling the need for more protein but can't eat.

I do make a separate chicken broth for when I want chicken soup...this multi-bone broth tastes more beefy. But this is my go-to comfort food now when my stomach is upset or I'm not hungry but know that I need to eat something.

Yes! That was my first thought reading this post. Actually a few diabetic medications are now being studied in the treatment in breast cancer as an adjuvant therapy along with standard treatment.
