- The collagen in bone broth will heal your gut lining and reduce intestinal inflammation.
- Bone broth also contains glucosamine, which makes for healthy joints
- The high mineral content can boost your immune system, strengthen your bones, and may even help you sleep better.
So how to make it?
You can purchase beef bones from your local butcher or grocery store. They are usually around $4 per pound.
Place them in your crock pot (I used about 8 small to medium bones for large pot).
Fill the remainder of the pot with water, a tablespoon or two of Apple Cider Vinegar, a couple cloves of garlic, and any extra vegetables you may have laying around.
Turn on until the mixture begins to bubble, then simmer on low for 24-72 hours. (I usually use 48 hours.).
Once ready, strain.
Drink as is out of a coffee mug (surprisingly delicious and gratifying, as well as supplying a healthy dose of fat), or add some tomato paste for flavoring.
You can also use for soup or cooking.
Leftovers can be frozen, and thawed for later use. I like to use individual serving size packages for convenience.
