Bone broth should taste good, and here’s how to make it.

Bone broth is a healthy new trend, and we’ve compiled a few tips to make your next batch taste great:

Switch Up Your Bones. Beef bones produce a flavorful, gelatinous stock, which is what you’re trying to achieve if you’re drinking bone broth for health reasons. Try out different combinations of beef, veal, and chicken bones to achieve the best flavor.

Roast the Bones. Roast heavy bones (like beef or veal) in the oven before adding to the stock pot.

Make Some Additions. Add some aromatic chopped vegetables (onions, celery, and carrots) and herbs like parsley or thyme to the pot while it simmers to add lots of flavor to your broth. Strain them out when it’s done cooking.

Season It. Like anything you cook, broth needs to be tasted and seasoned while it’s cooking.

Skim the Fat. You’ve probably heard that fat equals flavor, and in the case of broth, gelatinous fat equals nutrition. If you leave too much of the fat, though, the broth ends up tasting greasy. Cool the broth and the fat will settle at the top, so you can just scoop some off.
