BONE BROTH

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 2 Pounds Bones from a healthy source


  • 2 Chicken Feet for extra gelatin (optional)


  • 1 Onion


  • 2 Carrots


  • 2 Stalks of Celery


  • 2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar


 

Optional:

 

  • 1 Bunch Parsley

  • 1 Tablespoon Sea Salt

  • 1 Teaspoon Peppercorns

 

Additional Herbs or Spices to Taste.

 

I also add 2 cloves of garlic for the last 30 minutes of cooking.

 

Instructions:

 

  1. If using uncooked bones place them in a roasting pan and roast for 30 minutes at 350 F.


  2. Then place the bones in a large stock pot.

  3. Pour (filtered) water over the bones and add the vinegar.

  4. Let sit for 20-30 minutes in the cool water. The acid helps make the nutrients in the bones more available.


  5. Roughly chop and add the vegetables (except the parsley and garlic, if using) to the pot.

  6. Add any salt, pepper, spices, or herbs, if using.


  7. Bring the broth to a boil. Once it has reached a vigorous boil, reduce to a simmer and simmer until done.


  8. During the first few hours of simmering, you'll need to remove the impurities that float to the surface. A frothy/foamy layer will form and it can be easily scooped off with a big spoon. Throw this part away. You can check it every 20 minutes for the first 2 hours to remove this. Grass-fed and healthy animals will produce much less of this than conventional animals.


  9. During the last 30 minutes, add the garlic and parsley, if using.


  10. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

  11. Strain using a fine metal strainer to remove all the bits of bone and vegetable.

  12. When cool enough, store in a gallon size glass jar in the fridge for up to 5 days, or freeze for later use.

 

Notes:

 

If you are using raw bones, especially beef bones, it improves flavor to roast them in the oven first.

 

Bone broths are nutrient-dense, easy to digest, rich in flavor and boost healing.

Bone broths are rich in minerals that support the immune system and contain healing compounds like collagen, glutamine, glycine and proline.

The collagen in bone broth heals your gut lining and reduces intestinal inflammation. Collagen also supports healthy skin and can reduce the appearance of cellulite.

The glycine in bone broth can detoxify your cells from chemicals and improve brain function.

Consuming eight ounces one to two times daily is recommended.
