Benefits of Bone Broth
Enjoying broth consistently has amazing benefits in relation to:
In My Kitchen
Currently in my kitchen meat bones aren’t thrown away until they’ve simmered slowly for a couple days. My goal is to create a gelatinous thick broth when it cools, somehow this happens only half the time. Practice makes perfect, right?
If I’m lucky when the broth cools it will be thick like thin gelatin. Bone broths differed wildly in terms of visible gelatin content, general flavor and color. Some broths were a milky white, others a coffee brown, and others a golden yellow. I’ve read you can use your bones for a second round of broth making and I’ve done it too!
How I Make Bone Broth
Immerse bones in water with a ¼ cup organic raw apple cider and good quality sea salt for two days, give or take a few hours.
Left over chicken or turkey bones and any bigger bones work.
If you throw in the feet, marrow or knuckles you get more gelatin in the broth!
There are so many bone broth recipes available and I have a rather simple one I used to get started:
Knowing your way around food labels can be challenging and often require an interpreter to determine the real food value of a product. From calories, total fat, cholesterol, sodium, dietary fiber, etc–it can all be quite challenging.
Learning to read food labels
Did you know?
Too often we base our choices on convenience and our well-worn pathways. "I shop on Fridays when I'm tired and usually go to the same places. I get exhausted reading labels and can't make good choices. etc." It often can be equally as challenging to find the best resources in our community for your best-value foods, both quality and economically.
As part of my practice, I offer a 1-hour local guided shopping trip to some of our Thurston County grocers specializing in locally-raised food, and humanely and pasture-raised meats.
