Beltie Beef Broth


4-5 lbs. beef soup bones, oxtail, or spare ribs

water to cover bones

1/4 -1/2 c apple cider vinegar 

2-4 carrots (chopped)

medium onion (chopped)

2 dried bay leaves

1 head garlic

1-2 whole cloves

1 Tbsp. peppercorns

1 Tbsp. sea salt or Himalayan salt

parsley, thyme or other spices you like

Place all ingredients in large stock pot or crock pot. Simmer, keeping bones under water. Simmer for 8-12 hours. Pour broth through mesh strainer, then refrigerate until cooled completely. Skim any fat off the top after broth has cooled and then re-heat. Pour heated broth into ice cube trays and store frozen cubes in freezer bags, or process stock by ladling hot stock into hot jars, leaving 1 inch headspace. Process pints 20 minutes, quarts 25 minutes at 10 lbs. pressure in a steam pressure caner.

Yield: about 4 pints
