Bone broth for super health

I have been making bone broth for many years but just discovered the healing benefits of making it.  Sally Fallon author of Nourishing Traditions describes in detail the benefits of making broth from chicken, beef, pork and vegetables.  Our grandmothers knew that making broth from bones would relieve a cold and give us the precious minerals that help to fight off sickness and help us to stay healthy and fit.  Bone broth is just what our bodies have requested.

While doing some more research on bone broth I found some detailed information about the benefits of bone broth on these sites:

Click here to see how Sean explains the nutritional value of the  gelatin in the bones and the body building nutrients in the broth.  This site tells you how to use a pressure cooker.  This site is for those who like to see the stats of recipes.  This one is for bone broth.

As I see more of the benefits of this super food I am getting hungry for some.  I think I will go make a cup for my mid-afternoon snack.

To make your own you will need the following ingredients:

Large crockpot

3 lbs of bones

Water to cover

¼ cup apple cider vinegar

Place bones in crockpot, cover with water, pour in vinegar and turn the pot on to low.  Let sit all day and even over night.  For the last 2 hours of cooking add any vegetables you would like.  Garlic, onion, greens etc.

Pour the hot broth through a metal strainer and put into a flat pan to cool overnight.  You will have a layer of fat on the top.  This has lots of nutrients in it and makes up the flavor of the broth.  Pour into freezer containers, label with name and date and freeze until needed.

This recipe will make a gallon of broth the first cooking; you can cook the bones again for another gallon.


Happy Cooking.
