Soup made with bone broth

To make the bone broth (you can make any amount by multiplying/dividing ingredients):






– 2 pounds of beef bones from the butcher

– 2 onions

– 3 carrots

– 3 celery stalks

– 2 tbsp of vinegar (any, you can also use lemon juice)

– Bunch of mixed herbs, like thyme, rosemary, etc.

– 1 tsp of black peppercorns

– 4.5 litres of water






Roast the bones in the oven at 180˚C for 30 minutes.Place in a large pan (stock pot) and pour the water and vinegar over the bones. The vinegar helps release nutrients from the bones. Leave the meat in the cold water for 20-30 minutes.Add the vegetables (roughly chopped), the bunched herbs, peppercorns to the water and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and transfer to a slow cooker and cook on low setting for 48 hours. The long cooking time helps release as many minerals and nutrients as possible. During the first 2 hours (every 20 minutes) remove and throw away scum floating to the surface.When done, remove from the heat and cool slightly. Strain the broth to remove all bones and vegetables. The broth can be frozen or kept in the fridge for up to 5 days.
