How To Make Bone Broth: Video Series

What better way to warm up than with a nourishing bone broth?

This homemade bone broth recipe is so much more than the sum of it’s parts. Bone broth uses kitchen scraps and turns them into a deeply nourishing broth, great for gut health and general immunity.

Nourishing Bone Broth Recipe


Free-range, organic chicken frames or lamb or beef bones (jointy bones are best, you can get your butcher to cut up long bones for you) these can be raw or cooked – or left over from other meals).

Good mineral-rich salt

Organic apple cider vinegar

Veggie kitchen scraps: Onion skins, garlic skins, carrot tops, leek bottoms, celery bits, etc (any clean veg scraps that would usually be fed to the compost. I usually avoid brassicas and starchy veggies though).

Herbs from the garden


Place bones, veggie scraps, herbs, a glug of vinegar (1/4 cup) and a handful of salt in a big pot or slow cooker (solar cooker is great during longer days).

Fill with water and bring to the boil, then simmer for 12- 48 hours, (chicken bones less, beef bones more). Strain and pour into jars to keep in the fridge or freezer ready for your next broth based soup, stew, casserole, or any dish really.

  1. Greetings lovely PIP team,
    Please may i ask a question? (Not including this one)
    i’m wondering if there’s a better use for cooked broth bones other than crushing them into the compost?
    While i’m thinking this is this ok for the worms, i just wanted to ask in case this isn’t actually a wise method of environmentally friendly disposal.
    Is it best to burn them then put the ash into the compost?
    Many thanks in advance for your time and consideration.
    Yours in health, compost, and longevity,

    • Hi Mel – thanks for your question. We actually have an upcoming article appearing on the site which will answer this question – please be sure to keep an eye out for it!
