  • Add all the ingredients to your Instant Pot. Pour enough water to cover ingredients – not exceeding the maximum fill line (I tend to go up to that line).
  • Place the lid on and make sure the valve is in the sealed position. Set the Instant Pot to manual high pressure for 60 minutes.
  • Once the 60 minutes are up, quick release moving the valve into the release position and when the pressure seal has dropped, open the lid. Switch off the Instant Pot and allow to cool.
  • Once cool, remove any big pieces of bone or vegetable and discard. Pour the broth through a fine mesh strainer to strain out any vegetable / bone. You want a clear broth. You can strain once or twice depending on how clear you want it.
  • Store it in a freezer safe dish for up to 2 months.
