Building a strong immune system is probably the single most important thing you can do for your health. One way to do this is by drinking bone broth -- something our ancestors did back when and something that is making a "come-back" today. Here's a simple way to make this nourishing food and to keep you warm and healthy through the winter months..
1 lb-2 lbs bones from pastured animals (chicken feet/necks/backs or beef bones - knuckles are best)
4 cloves organic garlic
1 gallon filtered water
Sea salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1. Put all ingredients in a soup pot and bring to a boil; then reduce flame to a simmer for cook for 36 to 48 hours.
2. Strain broth and refrigerate in separate glass containers.
3. Once it is chilled remove the fat and save it other uses.
4. Drink the broth or use it for a base for soup.
Bone broths provide important minerals and vitamins that we need to cope with stress in our daily lives. It is an inexpensive way to get minerals and vitamins without taking supplements, which sometimes are not absorbed by the body when isolated from foods. Broth also fights wrinkles, cellulite and is good for loose skin after weight loss. Another benefit of broth is that it heals the digestive tract (gut lining) because it is full of amino acids.
This slow cooking recipe is aimed at getting the most minerals out of the bones to heal your body.
Here's to your health!!
