How I Make My Broth/Stock (Beef, Chicken & Shrimp)

Posted on | April 7, 2012 | 15 Comments

You’ve seen me mention bone broth/stock in this blog a few times. We love our broth around here & it’s so easy to make & incorporate into your daily foods. You don’t have to drink it hot from a mug to reap the benefits.

This article from the Weston A Price Foundation has some good information on bone broth.

When animals are slaughtered for our consumption, many of the parts go to waste. Sometimes, people just don’t know what to do with these piece. By making broths from the bones & pieces of offal that are usually considered “trash,” we are making sure that no part of an animal goes to waste. This, of course, goes hand in hand with my waste not, want not tendencies.

I’ve consolidated the 3 most used broth recipes here at our house in this one post for you. You can print each one individually to keep on hand.

    I just have a question about the broth. Are you using “raw” bones that you have cut raw meat off of, or do you cook the chicken first and then use the leftover bones?

    Connie, you can do either. If you roast your chicken to eat, then all you have to do is pick the meat off the bones for stock. If you prefer boneless chicken, you can debone the chicken, then roast the bones for stock. Roasting makes the broth much more flavourful!

    Dumb question perhaps – can you eat the veggies/shellfish/meat after the broth has been strained?

    Moira, you can, but they’re not very tasty. The scraps left become chicken food here. (No dumb question ever ๐Ÿ˜‰ )
