Bone marrow broth recipe and content provided by Sheridan Austin

Bone marrow broth delivers so many powerful benefits for a bare minimum effort. Like other bone broths, this recipe creates a flavorful concoction rich in collagen that supports strong joints.

In addition to its naturally rich flavor, this bone marrow broth gets an anti-inflammatory boost from spices like cardamom, ginger, and turmeric. This rich broth tastes perfect on its own, blended with grass-fed butter or ghee as a caffeine-free beverage, or incorporated into savory green soup or butternut squash soup.

For a hearty snack or light meal, serve bone marrow broth with grain-free buns or crispy sweet potato toast.

Servings1 serving


  • 3 1/4 pounds pastured beef marrow bones
  • 12 1/2 cups filtered water
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 5 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 5 cloves of garlic

Cardamom Ginger Bone Marrow Broth

  • 2 cups prepared bone marrow broth base
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Prepare bone marrow broth base first. Place bones, apple cider vinegar, salt, and water in a large pot or slow cooker and simmer on a low temperature for 12-24 hours. The longer you leave it, the more minerals and gelatin will leach from the bones.
  • Two hours before you decide to complete cooking, add all remaining base ingredients and continue cooking for two hours to infuse flavors.
  • Remove broth from heat. Strain out bones and fragments, and store the liquid in jars. Refrigerate for up to 5 days or freeze after cooling completely.
  • Use the broth base for soups and meals, or prepare cardamom ginger broth: Add all ingredients to a small saucepan and gently heat until warmed, stirring occasionally.
  • Pour into a mug and add a squeeze of lemon. Serve warm.
