Sip it straight-up or use it as a base for soup. This nutrient-packed broth is your best line of defence against cold and flu season.


Ingredients

  • 1.5 kg mixed bones
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 carrots

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 475F. Place bones in a roasting pan. Drizzle with oil, then toss to coat. Roast, turning bones occasionally, until they smell like roast beef and are dark brown, 30 to 40 min.
  • Using tongs, transfer bones, to a 4-quart slow cooker. Carefully drain and discard fat from roasting pan. Pour 1 cup water into roasting pan. Using a wooden spoon, scrape up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan, then pour into the slow cooker. Add remaining ingredients, then pour in enough water to cover bones.
  • Cover and cook on low for 10 to 12 hours.
  • Using tongs, remove bones to a large bowl. Remove any meat from bones (for another use), then discard bones. Skim off any remaining fat. Strain broth through a fine-mesh sieve into Mason jars. Seal and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
