Healing Bone Broth

It’s getting chilly outside and that can only mean one thing. Bone broth season is upon us. Bone broth is exactly what its name indicates - making broth or stock from bones. Besides being tasty on its own and a terrific way to add flavor to other home prepared meals, bone broth is exceedingly healthy. Bone broths use a lengthy and gentle simmering style of cooking to extract rich marrow and collagen from the bones.

Both marrow and collagen deliver an abundance of nutrients for all kinds of benefits to your system. Collagen is great for our skin, bones, muscles, hair, and teeth. It also soothes the gut. Bone marrow is rich in fat and what our cavemen ancestors sought out and thrived upon! Every single cell in our body is laden with healing fat. Our brains also are made up of 60% fat. And, a growing number of research is showing the immense health and weight-loss benefits of a high-fat diet.

Please make sure to use bones from healthy land or sea animals. Bones from grass-fed cows, sheep, goats, as well as pasture-raised chickens and pigs are all terrific. With Thanksgiving approaching, consider using your turkey carcass. And don’t despair. If you don’t eat meat, consider making bone broth from left over fish bones. Collect your fish bones and freeze. Over time you will have sufficient bones to create your own healthy broth!

As odd as it may seem, apple cider vinegar is a key ingredient in this recipe as it helps draw out nutrients from the bones.
