One of the reasons I was most excited for the farmers market (besides selling my own goodies), was to load up on some bones! I’ve been NEEDING to make some bone broths. A few years ago when I was heavy into Weston A. Price researching, I learned about bone broths and there healthy benefits. Talk about a belly soother. Plus a nutritional heavy weight. They’re easy to make. And they are cost efficient. Picking up grass-fed bones at the market is pretty inexpensive, which is a major bonus. People are full of excuses. One of the excuses for eating like shit is: healthy food is expensive. Bullshit.
Anyways I have been wanting to do this post for some time. What do you do with broth, you may ask? Well anything. I like to put them in my eggs. It is one of my favorite ways to cook my liver. I toss it in with the liver and pour it over some mashed cauliflower. And hello you can make soup!! Believe me, these negative temperatures give me a hankering for some hearty, warm, cozy soup. I have been trying to convince my grandpa with Celiac’s to use bone broth for sometime to help heal his stomach. Putting them into ice cubes trays I have found is the easiest way to keep them. Pop them out when you’re ready to use them. Keep it simple.
- Grass-Fed bones
- 1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
- spare vegetables (I use ones that have been in the fridge for a bit)
- spices (go crazy, I used: peppercorns, sea salt, fennel seeds, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, mustard seeds, and rosemary)
Let’s Make it Happen: Cover bones with water in a pot. Add the vinegar. Toss in veggies, this particular day I used mushrooms, sweet peppers, onion, garlic, and spinach (celery and carrots would be spectacular too). Throw in as many spices as you can find/want. Bring to a boil for a bit (like 10 minutes or so). Turn down, cover, and simmer for 4 hours. Strain out the spices, bones, and vegetables. Pour into ice cube trays. Use as needed. Easy! Thank you to one of my favorite grass-fed farms: L & A Farms not only for these delicious healthy bones, but for providing our community with such great products. I for one appreciate it.
