From a culinary standpoint, nothing makes better soups and stews than a base of homemade bone broth. The boxed stuff can be used in a pinch, but it does not come close to adding the depth of flavor as homemade. Not only is bone broth a culinary staple, it's also extremely healing. You can use the broth to cook with, but it's also very satisfying to simply drink a warm cup of broth from a mug. I make up a huge pot every couple of weeks and fill quart jars, and keep them in the freezer.

Large pot - I use a 16 qt stock pot
5 pounds of organic bones
apple cider vinegar
Herbs and spices of your choice.
For Beef bone broth - roast the bones in the oven for 45 minutes @ 350 degrees. Then take roasted bones and place in stock pot,add 1-2 cups of apple cider vinegar ( this helps pull the minerals out of the bones) with any vegetables, seasonings or herbs that you want to use. I usually chop up 4 carrots, an onion, and a whole thing of celery with sea salt, 15 or so peppercorns and a bunch of parsley. Fill pot with filtered water, put on the stove and bring to a boil and then turn down to a simmer and cook for 24-36 hours adding water as needed. When its finished cooking discard all vegetables and bones, then pour broth into qt jars and store in fridge or freezer. You can let it cool off, and once the fat rises to the top, go ahead and discard the fat. I prefer to leave the fat in mine, because sometimes depending on what I am cooking I want to use some of the fat, and if not; it's easy to discard it before use.
For Chicken Bone Broth - you can do it the exact same way except you don't have to cook it as long and you don't have to roast the bones. However, I make a roasted chicken once every week or two and I save those bones ( put them in a bag and freeze them) and then use them for my broth. Chicken bone broth will need to cook around 18-24 hours.
