Bone broth…it’s delicious in soups or as a stand alone morning drink and I absolutely love all of the nutritional goodness I get from it. I used to make bone broth in my slow cooker but I found myself not making it as often because of the lengthly process. Now that I have my amazing Instant Pot
…things have changed for the better. Making bone broth is super simple and is done in 90 minutes. Yes, you read that right. I have even figured out how to make it gelatinous every.dang.time. Read on if you love bone broth that gels!
**This recipe is for the most simplest of broths. I like the versatility I get from a broth like this but feel free to add a quartered onion, some chopped carrots, celery, etc to spice it up**
- 5 1/2 pounds chicken parts*
- 6 cups filtered water
- 1 .5 tbsp apple cider vinegar
*I used a little over 2 pounds chicken neck, a little under 2 pounds chicken backs, and a little under 2 pounds chicken feet. I know it may seem odd but the chicken feet are seriously the magic in this recipe.
1) Place bones in instant pot
2) Add 6 cups filtered water to your instant pot
3) Add 1.5 tbsp apple cider vinegar
(this helps pull the nutrients out of the bones and won’t alter the final taste)
4) Make sure your valve is in the ‘sealing’ position and press the ‘SOUP’ button on your Instant Pot using high power. Set the time for 90 minutes and walk away.
5) When the 90 minutes has passed, let the pressure release naturally until you can safely release it. I released mine too early and got a lovely spray of bone broth everywhere…not fun!
6) Strain out the bones and pour broth into a heat safe container. I have found it works best to let it cool slightly on the counter and then let it chill overnight in the fridge. In the morning, I scrape off the fat and am good to go with a nourishing cup of broth to start my morning!
