Organic, Slow-Cooker Red Palm Oil Bone Broth

An organic, slow-cooker bone broth recipe made with organic, sustainable red palm oil and other nourishing bone broth ingredients.


  • 1lb bones, any (this recipe used grass-fed and grass finished beef marrow bones)
  • 2 Tbsp. Organic Red Palm Oil
  • 2 whole carrots, cut into thirds (if you have the tops, use those, too)
  • 1 celery rib, cut into thirds
  • ½ leek, cut into thirds
  • ½ red onion, cut into thirds
  • ½ yellow onion, cut into thirds
  • 1 sheet kombu, broken into thirds
  • 2 garlic cloves, each cut into halves
  • 3 bay leaves
  • Parsley, small handful
  • Cilantro, small handful
  • 2 Tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 14-15 Cups water
  • salt, dash or as desired
  • pepper, dash or as desired


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Place the bones on a tinfoil-covered, rimmed baking sheet (as some fat may leak out during the roasting process).
  3. Brush the bones with the Nutiva Organic Red Palm Oil.
  4. Sprinkle bones with a little salt and pepper, as desired.
  5. Bake for about 15 minutes or until the bones have a gently roasted, golden color.
  6. Remove from the oven, and allow them to cool a little.
  7. Meanwhile, gather the rest of your ingredients for the broth.
  8. Place the water in a 4-quart slow cooker (or approximately 4 quarts).
  9. Add the remaining ingredients to the slow cooker.
  10. Finally, place the roasted bones in, stir and cover.
  11. Place the slow cooker on low and slow cook for at least 12 hours (up to 20-24 hours).
  12. Serve the broth as is or add more salt, pepper and Organic Red Palm Oil as desired to each individual bowl.

Organic, Slow-Cooker Red Palm Oil Bone Broth Good Broth Quote

“Good broth will resurrect the dead,” – a South American proverb. 

By now, surely you have heard about all the benefits of bone broth. It has become such a popular trend that in New York City you can pull right up to Brodo’s window and grab a cup to go.

And why is this? Why has the “bone broth” trend become such a staple in our diets?

Here are 4 reasons:

  • Research indicates that homemade, old-fashioned chicken soup due to its highly anti-inflammatory properties holds significant promise in managing the symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections like colds. (source)
  • Homemade broth is rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and other trace minerals. (source)
  • Helps to heal a leaky gut and calms inflammation. (source)
  • Provides an immune boost. (source)

During the past few years, many different ways for making bone broth have surfaced. We have enjoyed trying out several recipes ourselves, and so we wanted to create a new recipe giving the broth even more of a superfood boost.

We achieved this by adding in the beautiful, vibrant and super Organic Red Palm Oil.

Red palm oil is a nutrient-dense culinary oil. Its rich orange color reveals the presence of antioxidant vitamins A and E, in the forms of beta-carotene and rare tocotrienols and tocopherols of the vitamin E family. These nutrients provide color to vegetables and fruits such as carrots and tomatoes. Red palm oil also contains at least ten other carotenes, including the antioxidants, tocopherols and tocotrienols (vitamin E). {Learn more about our sustainable red palm oil HERE and HERE.}

    I love this! My issue is storage. I use broth in so many recipe’s from rice to soup to grits, I want to be able to grab frozen broth and use it. Any homemade broth I have made in the past turn into a jelly when stored. Gets really strong in flavor. Can I use glass jars in fridge, how long do you think it will keep? Any tips on storage? Sorry for the million questions…

    1. Sarah Kay Hoffman says:

      Hi Renee!
      1. “Jelly.” You, in fact, want this. This means you did it correctly. The “jelly” is the gelatin, which contains a lot of the healing, healthy and therapeutic properties. Once you warm it up, it will disappear.
      2. Yes, you can use glass jars in the fridge, but prior to storing, I would let the broth cool to room temperature.
      3. My broth usually lasts about 1 week to 10 days in the fridge. If you won’t use it all by then, store it in the freezer to use at your convenience. (I even make into “broth cubes” and take out when I need them for something which requires less broth!)
      Hope that helps!

    Thanks for the recipe! My question is what brand(s) of slow-cooker do you recommend? I’ve been shopping around for one, but all the ones I’ve found are made of and/or coated with a material that I don’t want leaching into my food. Any suggestions you have would be great!

    1. Nutiva Team Nutiva says:

      Hi Sarah! We don’t have any specific recommendations. This recipe was made using Calphalon, but if you find a great slow cooker, we’d love to know about it.
