  • After 24 hours, remove the lid and allow the cooling process to start.  Strain the liquid out, discarding the bones/vegetables and finish cooling the broth in the fridge uncovered.  When the broth has cooled, remove the layer of fat that hardens at the top (there may be fat depending on the bones used).

Notes

 You can also make bone broth on the stove top and in a pressure cooker.  I have not used those methods because I like the low simmer of the crock pot and the fact that I don’t have to babysit the broth as it cooks.  However if you don’t have a crock pot, those methods will work as well!
