Bone Broth

Beef Bones, carrots, onions, celery, apple cider vinegar and water.

Fight inflammation, promote healthy digestion, bone broth is a must for a healthy lifestyle.

It can be made with high quality grass fed, pastured and organic animals.

Here, I made it with beef marrow.

So first thing is to let sit your bones (1.5 to 2kg) an hour with only water (4.5L) and apple cider vinegar (125ml).

Then, add the vegetables (3 celery’s stalks, 3 carrots, 3 onions) and bring to a boil. Skim the scum.

Turn down to let simmer for 24 to 72 hours on low heat.

Let it cool and then drain. Make sure the marrow is in the broth! That’s the good stuff!

Store in an airtight container.

When ready to consume, add parsley for extra minerals and salt.

Enjoy and good health!

Ps. If you don’t want to throw any food away. Cause you are like me and don’t like to waste food. Keep your vegetables. Smooch all the water out and you will be able to make a “burger” patty or even a veggie spread. Since they’re less tasteful, don’t forget to add spices and herbs.
