Bone broth is one of the most nourishing, nutrient dense and high in bio-availabe minerals. It promotes gut healing and mineral distribution for joints, collagen, minerals, hair and nail health.
You can use any types of bone from marrow, neck, bird carcasses and wild game. (Hunters anyone?)
apple cider vinegar (ACV)
real sea salt
Buy excess bones and store in the freezer for later use.
1. Fill your crock pot with choice of bones, but makd sure the lid can sit comfortably with a seal.
2. Fill with water but leave a few inches from the top, otherwise water will boil over.
3. Put 1/4 cup of ACV, and a few tablespoons of real sea salt. The vinegar will help to break down the minerals.
4. Cook on low for 48 hours at least. The longer the better. Add water when necessary.
5. After time has passed, take out bones and the "extra" and discard. Take a big enough pot and put in sink, put in strainer on top and dough cloth over the strainer. Pour liquid over dough cloth and strain. Squeeze out extra fluid and discard the remnants.
6. You can drink the broth or use it as a broth for stew. Add your favorite veggies for a yummy soup. Put in mason jars and freeze.
7. The more gelatinous the better! The gel will quickly revert to liquid with heat.
