Lazy Crockpot Bone Broth

Mug of Bone Broth

Ok so I’m lazy when it comes to cooking sometimes…. well a lot of times. But I have a lot to do and waiting on a stove bone broth just isn’t my cup of tea. So let me introduce to you the leave it and forget it Lazy Bone Broth.

But first just incase you’re curious how about what good is it to make this stuff, the short short version. Once again this is a Lazy recipe so I’m not going to make you read a ton, but links from sources are below incase you feel like the long, long version.

Bone broth has gelatin which assists in digestion and helps with anemia, also gelatin can help with intestinal poisons when you have a nasty stomach flu. Bone broth is also rich in minerals like calcium, silicon, sulfur, magnesium, and phosphorus. It can help with treating digestive disorders leaky gut, Chrohn’s disease, and IBS to name a few. Collagen found in bone broth also helps with wrinkles and helps keep skin firm and is actually absorbed unlike topical treatments (sold aren’t you?). So yeah a cheap chemical peel without the chemicals, and well lets face it a lot more time than a chemical peel, but much healthier

So all you’ll need some vinegar of choice, water, and bones. I get a bag of bones from our local farm, or as I like to call them Bag’O’Bones, you can also get marrow bones from the store if you don’t have access to local grass fed bones (I promise I won’t judge). The broth will keep for up to a week in the refrigerator and can be kept much longer if frozen.

  1. What’s the vinegar for? Is it necessary because you’re using a crockpot? I’ve made bone broth on the stove, but it always just called for bones and water.
