Homemade Bone Broth Bouillon

Homemade Bone Broth Bouillon Cubes

This is the most amazing way to store your homemade beef & chicken bone broth, concentrated down into these Bone Broth Bouillon Cubes….You can keep an entire stock pot of broth in your freezer in a sandwich baggie of single serving portions!!

I guess technically these aren’t “Bouillon” since they aren’t dehydrated, these concentrated broth cubes are historically known as Portable Soup.. but generally speaking most of us would agree that we’d use them similarly to bouillon cubes. Its my kitchen and I call them bouillon 🙂

Yes!! You heard me right.!

Broth no longer needs a bunch of room in your freezer nor do you need to go through the hassle of pressure canning broth.. you can make these nifty concentrated broth cubes!

And when you realize how totally simple it is, you’re going to be bummed you didn’t start doing this years ago!

Here’s How I make my Homemade Bone Broth Bouillon:

For this example I used 1 Quart of Homemade Bone Broth that has been chilled and the fat has been removed from the top, but any amount is will work fine – I just encourage you to know how much you started with for portioning out the finished cubes (In this example I’m using beef bone broth.. click HERE for my recipe for Beef Bone Broth, chicken broth will work the exact same way)



Simmer your broth over medium/high heat…. allowing it to reduce… depending on how much broth your reducing it may take a long time.. this quart took about an hour to reduce.


Once your broth has reduced (by about 3/4) remove your pot from the stove (I dipped a wooden skewer into the broth when I first poured it into the pot and marked the level with a marker [pic 1] so you can see how far it has reduced [pic 2])

The broth is now more of a jelly/syrup, no longer a thin liquid.

Here’s a picture giving you another example of how the broth reduced.. on the left is a full quart of broth and on the right is the reduced broth..

Pour your reduced broth into a dish, bowl, or mold.. Put it into the fridge to chill completely.

Paying attention to the amount you started with, cut your solidified concentrated broth into portions.. For example we rendered 1 quart of broth so by dividing our rendered broth into 4 equal portions, each will reconstitute into 1 cup of broth.

I store my bouillon in the freezer in a jar and reconstitute them in boiling water to make broth. Great to take in your lunch to work or when you travel 🙂

Isn’t this super cool????

  1. Do you think you could do the same with vegetable broth? I’ve got loads of bones that I will try soon. Just trying to clean out the freezer scraps to make space for our veggie harvest and thought I’d ask!

  2. What a great idea! So what do you do to reconstitute it? Just add water? This may be a simple answer but I’m not much of a savvy cook so this is all new to me! Thanks!

  3. I love this recipe, and bone broth is such an important part of the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol. I just started a weekly Paleo AIP Recipe Roundtable through my blog, and I would love it if you linked up this recipe. I’m trying to expand resources for the AIP community. Here’s the link: http://www.phoenixhelix.com/2013/12/04/paleo-aip-recipe-roundtable-5/

  4. Wow, we love this idea! We fill our freezer with jars of broth but never knew we could further reduce it down to almost a syrup that takes up even less room!

    Brilliant! We’re so sharing this 🙂
