Happy New Year! I pray this year is your best year yet. For me, I’d like to eat healthier and exercise a bit more. One of the things I’ve added to my diet daily is bone broth. Bone broth gives your body so many health benefits! Here are just a few things bone broth helps with: detox, allergies, cold+flu, bloating, brittle hair and nails, fatigue, helps with low libido, indigestion, IBS, inflammation, and much more. (Now if you are like me, you’ll go google and read all about bone broth) Drink a cup daily and reap many benefits. Everyone makes bone broth a little different. You can use any bones, ham, pork, chicken, beef, deer.. here’s how I make it:
4 celery sticks
1 white onion
6 garlic cloves
salt + pepper
2 tablespoons Apple cider vinegar
I prefer beef bones, you can ask for them at your local butcher, or some grocery stores sell them. The first thing I do is boil the bones in water for about 15 minutes, then I roast them in the oven for about 20 minutes. This just brings out the flavor.. I rough chop my veggies and throw them in the crock pot. DO NOT put your garlic in until the last hour or 2. For bone broth you cook on low for 24-48 hours. I say the longer the better. I put my carrots, celery, onion in the bottom of crockpot, then put bones on top after they roast for a bit. I cover with water, add apple cider vinegar, salt + pepper, turmeric. I don’t measure these. I just give a few good shakes. I let it cook over night then the next day I add my garlic. After it’s cooked for 24-48 hours, I strain the liquid and salt and pepper again to taste. I store in mason jars in the fridge. I also store in freezer: use muffin tins and freezer bags for this. The broth will last 3-4 days in refrigerator, then you should boil it before you drink it. You can skim fat off of the top if you prefer. Ok I’m about to go enjoy my broth for the day! Cheers!
Enjoy my friends!
