What is bone broth?
Bone broth is created from boiling down bones and the connective tissue from animals, which creates a rich nutrient stock that can be ingested as a health drink on its own or added to recipes like homemade soup!
How do you make bone broth?
Next time you’re cooking up a rotisserie chicken, venison steaks, lamb chops, or anything related, save the bones! The rest is simple.
In a large pot, add about 2-4 pounds of bones, a gallon of water, and 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. For an additional health kick, throw in a couple of 2-inch turmeric roots, or 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder. Season with salt and pepper. Feel free to add tasty ingredients, herbs, and spices like ginger, garlic, lemon, onions, carrots, thyme, etc.
Bring the ingredients to a boil, reduce and simmer for up to 24 hours. Let it cool, strain the liquid into a pitcher or storage container. Enjoy!
Why use bone broth & turmeric as a “health drink”?
Bone broth is full of nutrition! It has been used for decades as a healthy elixir, a recovery drink, or a substitute for an afternoon tea. Plus, it’s delicious! The vinegar in bone broth helps to strip the bones and tissue of their nutrients, the turmeric amps up the brain health and also acts as an anti-inflammatory. Bone broth is also full of collagen! Collagen is known to be helpful to your bones and joints.
