Double Batch Homemade Broth

Nothing beats walking into your home and having a comforting smell fill your nose and soothe your soul. Do you know what smell I’m talking about? If you guessed homemade bone broth, you’re totally right.

Just yesterday I was making a batch of homemade broth and my husband came into the kitchen. “Man, that smells good.” It sure does! There is just something so comforting, healing and satisfying about homemade chicken broth (probably because it is comforting, healing and satisfying).

It makes me just want to cuddle up in something soft and warm, lay on the couch, watch a good movie and sip on some fresh-out-of-the-pot broth, lightly seasoned with unrefined sea salt. Ahh..

 

Making the Most out of Your Chicken Bones

As soon as we move out of my in-laws home, I want to start working on reversing my dairy-allergy and I’ve heard you consume tons of bone broth. My goal is to have a pot of broth simmering on the stove weekly. I often freeze the majority — if not all — of my broth but I’m going to start doing things a little differently around here since the fresh-out-of-the-pot broth simply can’t be beat!

Did you know you can actually reuse your bones from your first batch? That’s right!  Just empty out your first pot-full into jars (or however you store them), re-fill the water, add new veggies, and bring to a boil then reduce the temperature and simmer for another 12-48 hours.

Simple as that — and you get an extra pot full of liquid gold. The second batch may not be as “strong” and nutrient-dense as the first batch but nevertheless, you got two pots of broth out of one set of bones.

Talk about frugal living and making the most out of a whole chicken!!!

 

My Plan

My plan is to make two batches of broth weekly. The first batch I’ll jar up and keep in my refrigerator so I can drink it daily. The second batch will be for freezing purposes so I can use it for my rice, soups, and such. I think if I can have more broth on hand, I will more likely branch out and start making gravies and sauces, and ultimately consume broth every day.

So, next time you make your batch of broth, don’t throw out your bones, and reuse them for a second batch! If you need a tutorial on how to make your own homemade chicken broth, please read HERE.

Oh, and if you want to learn more about reversing allergies with foods like bone broth, I invite you to check out the Fall Into Health Bundle. There is a reversing allergies cookbook and e-course (both worth $179) included in the bundle and the bundle is priced at $39! You can learn more HERE.

    A couple of questions. 1) Is it okay to make bone broth in the crock pot or do you have to make it on the stove top? Can’t really think of any reason why the crockpot wouldn’t work, but haven’t ever come across a blog mentioning it. 2) I have a chicken carcass in a ziplock bag in the freezer and am adding veggie scraps until I have enough to make a batch of broth. Will I need to immediately start the second batch of broth after the first one is done, or is it okay to re freeze the carcass and wait until I’ve saved up more veggie scraps? This will be my first attempt at making bone broth, so still gathering info! Thanks!

    Angela, I have saved chicken bones and veggie scraps in a baggie in the freezer as well. I have also used the crockpot for my bone broth. I’m not sure you want to re-freeze the bones though.
