RECIPE: Bone Broth

RECIPE: Bone Broth

Bone broth is a nutritious and versatile broth made from the bones of animals (usually chicken, cow or fish). The bones are slowly simmered in water (anywhere between 24-72 hours) and during this time release powerful nutrients, including collagen, gelatin, calcium, magnesium and potassium into the broth. You can drink the broth straight up (heated!), or use it as a base for noodles, soups and stews.

Top benefits of drinking bone broth include:

  • Helps to heal your gut lining
  • Helps to reduce inflammation
  • Can boost your immune system
  • Reduces joint pain
  • Promotes strong bones
  • Can help promote better sleep

Making your own bone broth is super easy. Just follow the instructions below…

 

Bone Broth Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound organic chicken or beef bones.
  • 6-8 cups of water (depending on the size of your slow cooker)
  • 3 peeled cloves of garlic
  • 1 inch ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar (very important to help break down the bones)
  • Salt and pepper to taste (you can also add any other herbs you like)

Directions:

Put all ingredients into a slow cooker and cover with water. Cook on low for 24-48 hours. After the broth is done, strain the bones out of the liquid and add the broth into mason jars or glass containers. Keep in the fridge for up to 1 week. You can also add the broth into freezer safe containers and freeze for future use.

 

Alternatively if you’re time poor (or don’t have a slow cooker) you can try a bone broth powder. THIS ONE from Organika is one of our favourites and is available to purchase at Wellth!
