Gut-Healing, Immune boosting Bone Broth
There's nothing like the healing power of nutritious bone broth made from the very best,
high quality ingredients.
Whether you choose to make your broth with the bones from beef, pork, chicken, turkey, or fish,
make sure that it comes from the cleanest, naturally raised, and chemical free sources.
You may also choose to make a plant-based broth made solely from organic vegetables, herbs, and spices. Besides being very easy to make, it's extremely beneficial for your health.
It's perfect to sip warm to drive a sore throat, cold, or virus away. It also contains collagen, gelatin, and amino acids which help mend joints, muscles, and tissues while promoting youthful skin.
If that weren't enough, the bones are loaded with essential minerals like calcium and magnesium and improves gut health. Store-bought high quality bone broth can be quite expensive, however, it costs pennies to make especially since most of your ingredients are scraps.
Are you ready to try it for yourself? Follow the recipe below and let me know how yours turns out.
Place the bones into a slow-cooker, dutch oven, or Instant Pot and set temperature and time according to
the manufacturers' directions.
Add the following ingredients:
1-2 garlic cloves
1 onion (cut in 4 with the peeling)
1-2 T. raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar (depending on the size of the bones)
1-2 t. Sea salt
2 stalks of celery
2 carrots, unpeeled & cut in 4
Fresh herbs: thyme, oregano, sage, parsley, bay leaf (optional)
Add enough filtered water to just below the rim.
Cook on low for 24 hours (crock pot), and allow to cool.
Remove bones (and discard). I sometimes do a second batch once I strain the broth. Return everything back to the crockpot, and add more filtered water, apple cider vinegar, and cook on low for another 8-12 hours.
Strain broth to remove any leftover particles.
Store in jars in fridge or freezer.
(Optional): put some broth in ice cube trays for later use when you only need a small amount.
Use organic chicken or grass-fed beef bones and organic vegetables to get the best, most nutritious broth.
Uses: add when cooking instead of water, for example, steaming vegetables, cooking rice or potatoes, in sauces and gravy, or soup. I often drink some in a mug heated especially if I feel a little under the weather or I've been around someone else that's sick, I'm tired or run down.
Bone broth is also great for your skin and hair, and your joints. That's why it's rightfully called "liquid gold". It costs pennies to make, but it's using food as medicine.
