Whether you are recovering from a cold or surgery, are postpartum moms, healing digestion, detoxing or maintaining health, bone broths are a nourishing cure-all solution.
What do I do? Tips from Kristin
1) Collect bones. From your meals or you can buy bones from a butcher. You can keep a bag in your freezer until you have enough to make a batch.
2) I use a crock pot to make my broth, I let it simmer for 3-4 days to ensure maximum nutrient density. (the broth becomes gel like in consistency the longer you simmer)
1) Fill crock pot or large stockpot with bones (chicken, beef, turkey, fish, etc). (You can break the bones to get the maximum nutrients from the marrow and joints)
2) Cover with water
3) Add 1-2 TBS of lemon or apple cider vinegar (the acid will help leach the minerals from the bones)
4) Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and then simmer for 8 hour to 4 days.
5) Cool and strain.
6) Serve! I like to use about 1 part broth to 3 parts hot water and a little sea salt and drink in the morning. You can also use the broth to make your favorite soups, grains, and meals.
TIP: Freeze your bone broth in ice cube trays. When you are desiring a hot cup, place 1-2 cubes in a mug and fill remainder of mug with boiling water. Season with mineral sea salt & pepper.
