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.
- 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.
- Place chicken or lamb bones into the slow cooker with enough water to cover them all comfortably.
- Add whatever fresh herbs you have on hand (or dried ones if not!)
- Add 2-3 bay leaves
- Add 3 tbsp of organic apple cider vinegar. I do not measure this. Just pour in a few ‘glugs’!
- Turn your slow cooker on to low and cook for 8-12 hours. Let it cool down for a while.
- 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!
