Zero Waste Bone Broth

Bone broth is well known for being healthy, but by using leftover bones, it can be sustainable as well!

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 6-8 hours


  • 2 pounds assorted bones
  • 1 onion, sliced in half with skin left on
  • 1 whole head garlic, cut in half


  1. To preserve bones, freeze until needed, then thaw before preparing broth.

  2. Place all ingredients in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cook for 6 to 8 hours. For a slow-cooker version, cook covered on low for 24 hours.

  3. Strain finished broth to remove solids. This broth will keep in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for up to a year.
