Soothing, nourishing and healing, bone broth has been a principal food in the human diet for centuries. So why has it become the latest “trend du-jour?”
Bone broths are typically simmered for a very long period of time (often in excess of 24 hours). This long cooking time helps to remove as many minerals and nutrients as possible from the bones. At the end of cooking, so many minerals have leached from the bones and into the broth that the bones crumble when pressed lightly between your thumb and forefinger.
Bone broths are extraordinarily rich in nutrients – particularly minerals and amino acids. These mineral and amino acids support the bodies detoxification process, support digestion and support good skin health. Bone broth is high in protein.
Quite simply, it’s just bones, water and a really long simmer. A few vegetables and a squeeze of something acidic like lemon juice or apple cider vinegar help to extract nutrients. This simple, but flavorful and nutritious concoction becomes the perfect base for easy soups, stews, rice etc.
