“Indeed, stock is everything in cooking. Without it, nothing can be done.” -Auguste Escoffier
There is so much truth to this quote! I recently started incorporating bone broth into my diet every day. When they say “Let food be thy medicine”, this is definitely one of the foods they are talking about! The healing benefits are seemingly endless, especially to the individual recovering from an eating disorder such as anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating disorder, or bulimarexia. Bone broth provides support to the adrenals, teeth, bones, and helps in recovery from leaky gut. As an added benefit, it makes everything taste mouth-watering and delicious! You don’t have to be a chef to make bone broth, it is really easy to make!
Bone Broth Recipe
1 gallon of filtered water
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar (per gallon of water)
10 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup coarse Himalayan sea salt
your favorite herbs and spices
8-10 grass-fed beef bones with marrow
4-6 celery stalks
1. Bake bones for 1 hour at 350°.
1. Pour 1 gallon of filtered water into crock pot
2. Add in all ingredients.
Place all ingredients in crockpot and cook on low for 24 – 72 hours. Strain and pour into glass jars that can be frozen. Keeps in fridge for 5+ days, so put some there and freeze the rest.
To create a particularly great tasting stock and a scrumptious beef dish, add an inexpensive grass fed beef cut and let it cook for 5 or 6 hours and then remove and enjoy, or use for soups, stews, barbeque, etc. You can do the same thing with chicken breasts but you have to be more careful with the broth afterwards and keep it frozen until you use it. This is a great way to get CLA into your chicken dishes and it really tastes like pulled pork when you take it out.
