Simple, Gelatinous Bone Broth Recipe

"A good broth can resurrect the dead." ~ South American Proverb

"Liquid gold", Bouillion", "Caldo", "Brodo", "Cow foot soup", and "Jewish penicillin" are all names given to bone broth from different cultures all over the world. This food has proven countless time to be medicinal and has stood the test of time over the centuries for people across the planet.

Why do people call bone broth "the fountain of youth"?

1) Strengthens the body & various organs (esp. liver & kidneys)

2) Rich in bioavailable vitamins A, D, E, & K

2) Minerals ( potassium, magnesium, phosphorus & more!)

3) Amino acids (especially glycine)

4) Detoxes

5) Hydrates

6) Relaxes muscles

7) Calms anxiety

8) Seals leaky gut

9) Antiflammatory

10) Blood builder

⭐ It provides highly absorbable nutrients and detoxes! ⭐

(Dis-ease is caused by nutrient deficiencies and toxicity)

Using an Instant Pot has been a total game changer because I can make bone broth so much more often. It allows me to have a freezer full of bone broth so I can easily consume it daily and reap all these incredible benefits! I also don't have to worry about the heavy metals found in ceramic crockpots which is what I use to use since Instant Pot uses a stainless steel pot. You can literally put all the ingredients in the Instant Pot and walk away for the entire day. It's that easy and I absolutely love it! 😍

Basic Recipe Instructions

In my instructional video on Instagram I'm using a 10 quart Instant Pot because I can make more bone broth at once. I specifically bought this kitchen tool for bone broth and let me tell you, it's a total game changer! I can make this fountain of youth soup that's loaded with collagen and goodness in 4 hours time. Gone are the days when I have to wait 20 hours to make this nutritionally dense superfood.

Note: A good ratio of bones to water is 2:1. Two pounds of bones for every gallon of water.


-4 pounds of organic beef bones from clean healthy animals

-Purified, filtered water

-2-3 stalks of celery

-1-2 carrot sticks

(herbs of choice) ~ optional

-1/4 cup of Apple cider vinegar

-Himalayan salt to taste (I add a little bit only to make it more versatile in dishes later on)

Kitchen Tools

-10 quart Instant pot Duo Novo

-Stainless steel strainer

-Stainless steel funnel

-Stainless steel ladle

-Stainless steel knife and spoon

-5 quart sized glass Weck, Mason, or similar jars and their lids.

Step 1:

Add bones to stainless steel pot.

Step 2:

Add rest of ingredients. Start by adding the celery, carrots, vinegar, salt, and herbs before adding water to the fill line.

Step 3:

Press the option for "Pressure cook" and then set the timer for 4 hours and walk away!

Step 4:

After the pressure has been released and it's safe to open your Instant pot, then discard all the roughage and place the bones aside for later use. You can reuse the bones several times--even three times--and still get great gelatinous bone broth! Remember to wait until the bones cool before placing them in the refrigerator.

Step 5:

Turn off the Instant Pot. Once the broth has cooled down a bit, get out your stainless steel strainer, stainless steel funnel, and glass Weck jars or Mason jars and safely strain the broth into each quart using the filter.

Step 6:

Fill as many jars as you need to and then let them sit on the counter to cool down a bit more before putting lids on them and then placing them into the refrigerator for a few hours to completely solidify.

Step 7:

Remove the jars of broth from the fridge. Once the lids are opened, you'll notice a disk of fat on the top layer. You can either discard this fat disk or save them and freeze them to render later on. I use a stainless steel knife and spoon to remove this fat disk. After you've removed the fat you should see a jello like consistency which means that our bone broth is collagen rich and successfully made. Thank God!

Typically, a broth won't be gelatinous if insufficient amount of vinegar is used in the recipe. It'll still be nutritious and can be enjoyed like a consumé.

Step 8:

I personally will keep out a quart or more in my fridge for the week to use in my cooking and to enjoy by itself. Bone broth makes any dish 10 times better! One can add more salt at this time if preferred. A favorite way to consume bone broth for a lot of folks is to pour it in a big mug and add a tablespoon of organic raw sheep butter! 😍 Now, that's a super delicious and incredibly nutritious way to start or end any day.

Enjoy and let me know how you like to enjoy your bone broth...

With love & hugs,
