It is quite a process to make bone broth at home, so you definitely want to make sure you keep keep it as long as safely possible in the fridge, and then freeze the rest. But how long will bone broth stay good in the fridge for?
Bone broth can be safely stored in the fridge for 3 to 4 days. What I do when I make large batches of bone broth, is I keep enough in the fridge to last for a few days, and then I freeze the rest in a single serving portion sizes. This means that I’ll have fresh bone broth in my fridge for the few days after I make it, and then I can simply defrost the bone broth that I have kept my freezer in my single serving sizes that I personally use, when I have used up all the fresh portions in my refrigerator.
Some people do state that you can keep bone broth in the fridge longer as long as the fat layer is still on top and not broken. However if I’m using bone broth out of the fridge I’m obviously going to break that fat layer, and so it won’t last longer than the four to five days. Plus I’m always a little squeamish on relying on something like a fat layer for food safety.
