Bone Broth has become very popular. As a result, those of us who have been drinking bone broth regularly can attest to the many benefits.

I believe as a result of drinking bone broth for a couple years, I don’t get sick. Consequently, getting the flu and missing several days of work seems to be a thing of the past.

Another benefit seems to be a reduction in environmental and food allergies. For example, every fall I would get allergies that made me feel tired everyday. Since I have been drinking broth, allergy attacks are almost non-existent.

Lastly, I have noticed an increase in energy and overall well-being. As a result, I have stopped drinking coffee and eating sugar to get the needed energy boost in the morning and afternoons.

If you decide to add this to your diet, here are the instructions.

1.) Ask your butcher for any bones they are throwing away. I like to get them from places that advertise grass fed beef or free range chicken.

 

2.) If the bones have fat left on them I like to roast them for 5-10 minutes. The fat can be eaten from the center of the beef bones. This fat is very good for you. In addition, roasting the bones gives the broth added flavor.

 

3.) Drop the bones in a large pot or slow-cooker and bring them to a boil. Reduce the heat to the lowest setting.

4.) Broth is best after several days of slow-cooking, but cooking for 12-24 hours is fine.

5.) Pour it through a strainer and store in plastic containers in the freezer until ready to use. If placing it in the refrigerator you can use glass jars.

Finally, you will know the broth was successful if there is a thick, jello-like texture after it cools in the refrigerator.

There are many variations on broth, but this is classic, beef bone broth. In addition you can add vegetables and seasonings to any broth. I enjoy all of it!

Drink a cup of bone broth before every meal and enjoy all the wonderful benefits for your health!
