Hearty Bone Broth

11/11/2013 — Leave a comment

Now that the cooler weather is here, nothing warms us up more than a bowl full of this mineral-rich bone broth which has a very earthy flavour.  Not only is homemade bone broth is delicious and satisfying, but it also contains gelatin and many different minerals in a form that the body can easily absorb.  It can be served as a broth or used as a base for soup.  It also freezes very well.

What you need:

2 pounds of bones (chicken, turkey, beef, or bison)

2 Tb apple cider vinegar

4 Litres of filtered water

Sea salt

What to do:  This broth can be made on the stovetop or in a slow cooker.  Cover the bones with water and bring to a boil.  Skim off any foam as it rises to the surface.  For chicken and turkey bones, simmer for at least 12 hours.  For beef and bison bones, simmer for at least 24 hours.  If the water level drops, simply add more water.  Once the broth is a nice rich colour, strain through a cheesecloth to remove any bone fragments.  Add sea salt to taste and enjoy!
