I love drinking hot bone broth especially in winter, not only because it tastes good but also because of its amazing health benefits. As a matter of fact, I have a batch cooking as I’m writing this post. Yum!
I highly recommend it to my clients, especially those suffering from gastrointestinal issues such as IBS, coeliac disease, gluten intolerance, or SIBO. Bone broth can help you heal and seal your gut, which is especially important if you have been experiencing any of the above issues. It is also very high in essential minerals the body needs, it helps to enhance immunity and strengthen hair, skin, and nails. It is super easy to make and on top of it, it tastes darn good!!
- bones from grass-fed, pastured animals or the carcass of a free-range chicken
- salt, pepper to taste
- optional spices: cumin, majoram, thyme
- 1-2 tsp tumeric powder
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- Chop the vegetables (leave them quite thick) and place them in the crock-pot along with the bones.
- Cover with water, add the vinegar (this helps release the minerals from the bones), and add the spices.
- Cook at low temperature for 12 to 24 hours.
- Let cool down and drain, then portion out and keep in the fridge.
- Drink it by the cup or use it for preparing sauces and soups. I like to freeze some and heat it up when needed!
