The healing benefits of bone broth
What is Bone Broth?
Bone broth is made by simmering animal bones (usually chicken, turkey or beef) for a long time (8-24 hours) in order to extract the most healing properties.
Bone borth contains:
Here are some benefits:
Take joint bones (either a free-range, organic whole turkey or chicken, knuckles/tails of beef/pork, or fish heads)
Place in crock pot and fill with water.
Add tablespoon of vinegar to extract minerals.
Simmer bones for eight to 48 hours, adding more water when necessary. If you’re making fish stock, it only takes two or three hours. Add onions, carrots, celery, and any herbs you like. Strain the broth through a double layer of cheesecloth. When your broth cools, it’ll be “jiggly” because it’s packed with healthy gelatin.
Some people love it. I tend to like it better when I add a tablespoon of sweet miso soup. (add a 1/4 cup of stock to the miso, stir until dissovled, than add 3/4 cup of stock.)
Keeps for up to a week in the refrigerator or freeze.
