What is the best way to store your bone broths?
Defrost the contents of one container of bone broth and pour into a pot. Bring the heat up until your bone broth is at a small simmer and consume or use. After simmered, you can place the remainder of your bone broth into a glass jar (let it cool back down) and store in the refrigerator. Bone broth that you are not going to consume within 7 days should be kept frozen.
Once defrosted, how long will the bone broth stay fresh?
We advise no longer than 7 days. Best practice is to always return your bone broth to a simmer before consumption.

Both of these products contain 20 ounces per package. This is the equivalent of two and a half 8-ounce servings.
