– For fish bone broth, choose high-quality and wild-caught fish. Snapper and sole are good choices. Avoid oily fish like mackerel.
1. Put bones in a big pot, add water and sea salt. You can roast or brown the bones first, for extra flavor. Add chopped carrots, onions garlic and celery. You can also add some sage, bay leaves, and any other spices and herbs, that go well with the type of bones you’re using. Add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, to help pull the nutrients out of the bones.
2. Bring the broth to a boil. Upon simmering, add more water when necessary.
Note: For poultry and meat broths, 8 hours of cooking at a minimum, and more than 24 hours if possible. Fish bone broth can take 2-3 hours. The softer the bones are, the more nutrient-packed your broth will be.
3. Cool the broth and strain it, using a strainer. Put the broth in glass storage bowls. Store some of it in your fridge, which you can use over the next 3 days or so. Keep the rest in bowls in the freezer.
Note: As the broth cools in the fridge, the fat will rise to the top. Remove this fat and use it for cooking if you’d like. When your broth cools, it will get gelatinous. This means it’s full of fat-burning and wrinkle-busting collagen.
