As far as healing foods go, bone broth is the star of the show. Beneficial to the gut, bones, skin, joints, and so much more, stewing bones from chicken, beef, and just about everything releases nourishing collagen, proteins, vitamins, and minerals. Pairing this with some wholesome vegetables and spices is why we think food is medicine.

Heart Bone Broth

Ingredients

2-3kg of bones from grass-fed beef, lamb, chicken, or duck.

I large onion

2 cloves of Garlic

2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar

Salt to taste

1 tbsp of whole peppercorns

2 carrots

2 celery sticks

1 leek

Handful of parsley

5 cups of water

Handful of thyme

Directions

Place the bones in the slow cooker. Add vinegar and salt, as well as vegetables, peppercorns, and parsley. Please note that if you do not have a slow cooker, a pan on low heat works as well.

After 12-24 hours, strain the liquid using a sieve and remove all of the herbs, vegetables, and bones.

Place the broth into a glass container and store it in the fridge for at least four hours.

After four hours, you will notice a layer of white fat on top – remove this. The broth will appear like a jelly-like consistency – this is normal.

When you are ready to eat, heat one cup in a pan stirring occasionally, and once piping hot, enjoy!

Any leftovers can be refrigerated for up to 3 days or stored in the freezer for six months.
