Nourishing Bone Broth Recipe

 

Bone Broth is simple to make and it should become a regular part of your cooking routine. As your broth simmers, the bones infuse the water with a rich array of goodness:

  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Phosphorus
  • Gelatin
  • Glucosamine
  • Chondroitin
  • Glycine
  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Other trace minerals

There are many healing benefits to drinking and using bone broth in your cooking instead of bouillon cubes. To learn more about the benefits of bone broth, check out this article.

Ingredients

Organic bones (chicken, pork, beef, bison)

2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

2 carrots

1 medium – large onion

2 stalks celery

1 – 2 bay leaves

1 tablespoon whole peppercorns

Handful of seaweed

Filtered water

 

Method

1. Roast your bones for 1 hour (or use leftover bones from a roast).

2. Put the roasted bones in a slow cooker or large pot.

3. Add vegetables and herbs.

4. Cover with water—bring water up to the top of your pot leaving enough space for it to bubble gently as it simmers.

5. Cook for 10 or more hours. Ideally leave cooking overnight for a warm cup of broth in the morning. The bones should crumble in your hands which is a good sign that much of the nourishment from them is now in the liquid.

6. Sieve broth and store in refrigerator for use.

7. Refrigerate for up to 5 days or freeze.

 

Bonus: When to drink your broth?

When we serve breakfast we serve up a mug of broth. It’s the first thing we consume in the morning. At first it seemed weird doing this; now I can’t imagine breakfast without it.
