Heavenly Bone Broth
We use bone broth all year round. My slow cooker is on at least once a week brewing one of these tasty healthy broths. It can be used as a digestive healing drink (on it's own) or as a base for soups and stews. Not only is the bone broth wonderfully nutrient dense, it also is full of collagen, glutamine, glycine, proline which help heal the cells lining of the digestive tract and reduce intestinal inflammation
When should I use a bone broth?
The simple answer is: ALL YEAR ROUND!

Bone Broth Recipe
1/2 kg Beef, Chicken or Pork Bones ( or whatever fits in your slow cooker)
2 tbs Apple cider vinegar
Veg (usually whatever is in the cupboard/fridge) rough chopped
I usually add 2-3 potato’s, an onion, a few slices of sweet potato, 2-3 carrots, 5 pepper corns, and a bay leaf, 1-2 stalks of celery if I have it)
Place bones in slow cooker pour over the apple cider vinegar, add veg and fill with filtered water. Place on high until warm then turn down to low for 24-48 hours.
Remove and strain off liquid (we usually use any meat and suitable veg).
Place liquid in fridge and when cooled scrape the hard layer of fat off the top.
Place a cup of the now slightly gelatinous cooled stock into zip lock bag and flat pack into freezer, or use ice cube trays to freeze it. ENJOY
