My Adventure With Bone Broth
With fall here, I’ve been hunkering down and changing the way I eat. Since the days have been cooling off, cold salads and smoothies don’t sound as good. I’ve found that I naturally gravitate to more warming soups and stews.
One thing that has been getting a lot of press is the benefits of bone broth. So with the temps falling, I thought that I’d try my hand at making some.
What is Bone Broth?
Bone broth has been around for ages. Basically you take bones (chicken, beef, lamb, veal, even fish), add vegetables, spices, vinegar and water and simmer the mixture for 24 to 48 hours. You then discard the solids and drink the broth or use it as a base for soups and stews.
The broth contains lots of collagen, gelatin, essential amino acids such as proline, glycine, and glutamine. It also contains lots of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon and sulphur.
