Weekly tip - bone broth

Weekly tip - bone broth
here is something soothing about a hot bowl of bone broth on a cold rainy day. It’s easy to digest and delivers a whole load of nutrients to our gut (which makes up most of our immune system).
 
Bone broth is a stock made by simmering beef, chicken, fish or lamb bones with vegetables and herbs over a period of time (ideally over 24hours) Its not expensive to make (you can use the scraps of bones from your next Sunday roast) If you don't have time or desire to make your own bone broth you can buy it online and have it delivered to your door. Just make sure its organic and grass fed. 
 
There are many ways you can add it to your diet, you can cook your rice or pasta in it, add to soups or gravies or enjoy it in its most simplest form.
 
Give my chicken bone broth recipe a try. You can freeze it in ice trays so you always have a nutrient booster that can be quickly added to your favourite meals.
 
Ingredients
 
1 x chicken carcass (yes you can use the one leftover from your roast)
1 x stem of celery
2 x carrots
1 x onion
3 x tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 x cloves of garlic
enough water to cover the carcass once in stockpot
salt and pepper to taste
 
Method
 
  1. Add all ingredients to a stock pot
  2. Bring to a boil
  3. Reduce heat to the lowest setting
  4. Partially cover and leave to simmer away for around 8hours. The longer the better though.
  5. Once ready, strain the liquid and store in the fridge or freezer.
 
Alternatively you can use a slow cooker - add all the ingredients and leave to simmer away for minimum 8hours.
