You may have recently seen an uptick in articles about the benefits of bone broth and our health. While bone broth is not new, it is enjoying notoriety with it's new label of "Superfood." It's quite simple to make and is revered in many of the gut healing diets such as GAPS diet and Weston A. Price. Proponents of bone broth often cite its ability to heal the gut, remineralize teeth, decrease inflammation, improve nerve system function, speed wound healing and aid in joint repair. Paleo mom wrote a great article on the subject.
Here is our favorite bone broth recipe:
2 pounds beef bones from grass fed cows
1 onion chopped
4 cloves garlic minced
1 carrot chopped
2 celery stalks
3Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
.5" ginger root chopped
Chop onion, carrot, celery stalks, and ginger. Add all ingredients to slow cooker. Fill with water so bones are covered. Let simmer on low for 48 hours. Due to the length of time required some prefer to use a slow cooker. Strain. Discard solids, enjoy the bone broth.
