Keto and Carnivore Bone Broth – Ketogenic Woman
A key skill to learn when making Keto or Carnivore is how to make your own homemade bone broth. It’s really that easy and homemade bone broth also has many health benefits.
And if you’ve checked the prices of store-bought bone broth on a cardboard, you already know that this is the economical way to do it!
So why not take a few extra minutes to save those leftover pieces of meat and bones? The best way I’ve found is to keep a big ziploc freezer bag in the freezer and throw them there.
Then, when it’s full, it’s time to make a batch of homemade keto bone broth

What bones are good for bone broth? All of
them really! Some have more collagen than others, but if you use a variety of bones from different animals, your bone broth will taste great and plenty of nutrients. My favorites to use are:
- beef pork
chicken necks and
ribs Sometimes I
even spend the money and buy ribs and oxtails and make them in my pressure cooker so I can eat meat and bone broth
What else do you need to make bone broth?
- Some people also save vegetable scraps or put onions, carrots and celery that then strain
- apple cider vinegar (acidity extracts more collagen)
you’ve followed the instructions below and have the broth, the best way to store it is to freeze it in usable portions. I like to think ahead to include recipes that not only use large amounts of broth (like soups), but those recipes that only need small amounts, like a sauce.
It’s also good to have smaller individual portions on hand so you can have your daily collagen boost!
For this reason, I have some ideas to get creative with your freezing methods. You can make use of the following items that are probably already in the kitchen
- Stackable ice cube trays: Freeze a couple of trays and then when frozen, put them in a large ziploc bag. Perfect for when you need small amounts of broth.
- Silicone muffin pans: They will freeze portions of about 1/2 cup each. Once frozen, you can dump them in a bag for storage.
- Large ziploc bags. Fill them with a liter of broth and place them flat in the freezer for better storage. Perfect for when you’re making a batch of soup.
- Glass jars are perfect for storing your homemade chicken broth in the fridge.

you need to roast the bones before making bone broth?
Ok, confession time. I’ve never roasted bones first, not even once.
I have read in several places that roasting bones first gives more flavor and richness. Maybe so. I like it well without roasting.
But if you have time, go ahead! Maybe one of these days I’ll try it.
How long to cook bone broth?
That, my friend will depend on the appliance you choose
- Stove: Simmer for at least 12 hours
- , I’ve read some recipes that are 24 to 48 hours!
- / Crockpot: Simmer for 12 hours
- Instant Pot: Pressure cooker for 2 hours
If you know me even a little, you probably already know that I have never cooked bone broth on the stove and never will. If that was my only option, then I would simply buy it in-store or online.
have done it many times both in a cooking pot and in an instant pot! And I loved how it turned out each time!
But if they sell you the benefits but not the work, then I highly recommend Kettle & Fire
