Bone broth: your quick and easy guide

Bone broth is exceptionally good for you. It is great for healing and soothing the irritated or leaky gut mucosa and wonderful for speeding up healing from a respiratory tract infection. Bone broth helps improve skin, your sleep and your joints and bones.

Ingredients

  • Chicken or lamb bones, left over from the Slow Cooked Lamb with Pressure Cooked Veggie Stew, roasts, or baked chicken wings etc.
  • Fresh herbs and 3 Bay leaves
  • Rain or spring water
  • 3 tbsp Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Any vegetables that you like can also be added, though I do not routinely do this.

Method

  1. Place chicken or lamb bones into the slow cooker with enough water to cover them all comfortably.
  2. Add whatever fresh herbs you have on hand (or dried ones if not!)
  3. Add 2-3 bay leaves
  4. Add 3 tbsp of organic apple cider vinegar. I do not measure this. Just pour in a few ‘glugs’!
  5. Turn your slow cooker on to low and cook for 8-12 hours. Let it cool down for a while.
  6. Strain the fluid into glass containers and place in the fridge for the next few days use, and/ or freeze so it is ready to use when you need it.

TIPS: Use this delicious and nurturing bone broth in any soups, stews, casseroles, sauces or gravies you make. Drink it straight if you like too!
