How To Make Bone Broth

How To Make Bone Broth💫💫

Ingredients:
-2 pounds of chicken, turkey, pork, beef, lamb, or other bones (try to get bones that have lots of connective tissue such as feet, knuckles, necks, back, etc)
-1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
-4 cups roughly chopped carrots, onions, and celery
-2 bay leaves
-1/2 tsp peppercorns
-1 tsp sea salt
-Filtered water

Instructions:
In a large soup pan, place the bones, apple cider vinegar, vegetables, bay leaves, peppercorns, and salt.
Fill pot with filtered water until it covers the bones by an inch.
Bring to a simmer over medium heat, then reduce heat to as low as your stove will go, while still bubbling slightly. Cover with lid (slightly ajar.)
Cook for 24 hours for poultry bones or 48 hours for red meat bones. If cooking overnight makes you nervous, you can place the whole pot (covered) in the fridge and continue cooking in the morning.
When cooking time is finished, strain the broth and transfer to mason jars. Store bone broth in the fridge or freezer. Enjoy!

Bone Broth Benefits

Top Reasons To Drink Bone Broth:
From Dr. Mercola (https://recipes.mercola.com/bone-broth-recipe.aspx)

  1. Helps heal and seal your gut, and promotes healthy digestion. The gelatin found in bone broth attracts and holds liquids, including digestive juices, thereby supporting proper digestion.
  2. Reduces joint pain and inflammation, courtesy of compounds extracted from the boiled down cartilage.
  3. Promotes strong, healthy bones. Bone broth contains high amounts of calcium, magnesium, and other nutrients that play an important role in healthy bone formation.
  4. Inhibits infection caused by cold and flu viruses, etc. A study published over a decade ago found that chicken soup indeed has medicinal qualities, significantly mitigating infection.
  5. Fights inflammation. Amino acids have anti-inflammatory effects. Some (Glycine) also have calming effects, which can help you sleep better.
  6. Promotes healthy hair and nail growth, thanks to the gelatin in the broth.
