I love bone broth, more than anything I can think of.  I love just sipping it hot in a coffee mug.  I also use it to make rice, quinoa, couscous, veggies and many of my meat dishes. 

I probably make two pots every week.

I use my bone broth in recipes meant for the entire family.

Why?

The benefits of bone broth

 

The healing benefits of bone broth are real.

Research has shown bone broth can help: 

  • Heal leaky gut
  • Overcome food intolerance and allergies
  • Improve joint health
  • Reduce cellulite and improve skin health
  • Boosting the immune system

Thanks to the high levels of proteins (like collagen) and amino acids present in bones and bone marrow, bone broth has been shown to reduce allergies and asthma, boost the immune system and fight autoimmune diseases such as arthritis. When cooked for long periods of time, nutrients like glutamine, glycine, glucosamine, collagen, and calcium soak into the broth.

Bone broth is great for those on the ketogenic diet, and help to fight keto flu!

The end result is a super-healthy, healing drink like no other. 

 

To get all the benefits of bone broth, you have two options.  You can buy it, or you can make it!

If you are going to buy it, you want to buy the best.  You want to look for bone broth that is simmered for at least 24 hours, and is made from bones of pastured/grass-fed animals.

What’s the difference?

You are what you eat.  If you eat from animals who are fed like they are meant to be fed, you will have meat/bones with an ideal fat profile and are healthier in general.

While I have caught myself more than a few times without my homemade bone broth, or without enough for the recipe.  When this happens, I have Kettle & Fire on hand.

 

Spicy Bone Broth

I like my food spicy!  It just makes everything I use it for just a bit spicier! 

YUM!

I have made bone broth in the Instant Pot and on the stove.  I like it made in the Instant Pot far better.  First, it doesn’t take as long; just 1/3 the time.  Second, the broth is more flavorful, which I attribute to the long and slow release time.

It’s really easy to make tasty bone broth.  Plus, it doesn’t break a fast.  When I am deep in my fast and I want to extend it a few more hours, I drink 1 cup of bone broth by getting it pipping hot (heat in the microwave for 2 minutes) and sipping.

Ingredients
  1. 2 lbs. bones (chicken, beef, pork, lamb, goat, whatever)
  2. 2 carrots (each stick should be cut into 3 parts)
  3. 2 celery stalks (each stalk should be cut into 3 parts)
  4. 1 to 1.5 inches fresh ginger root (should be cut into 3 pieces)
  5. 2 hot peppers of choice (each pepper should be cut into 3 pieces)
  6. 5 garlic cloves
  7. 1/2 onion cut and sliced broadly
  8. 1 tsp. peppercorns
  9. 2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  10. To taste Himalayan Salt
  11. 2 bay leaves
Instructions
  1. Add everything to your instant pot.
  2. Add enough water to cover all ingredients
  3. Cook on "soup" for 2 hours.
  4. Allow to release naturally for 1.5 hours
  5. After the 1.5 hours, fast release
  6. Drain the broth from the bones.
  7. Eat right away or allow to gel by placing in the fridge overnight.
Notes
  1. You can do a quick release from the beginning, but the extra 1.5 hours of cooking allows more flavors and nutrients to be extracted.
  2. The apple cider vinegar helps with nutrient extraction.

What you get is a beautiful golden-colored broth that’s so delicious and good for you!

delicious-bone-broth You can drink it/use it right out of the instant pot (be careful, it’s hot), or you can put it in the fridge and allow it to gel overnight.  The gel is a sure sign that you got a lot of collagen out of your bones!

KETO tip – When you place it in the fridge, a film will form on top of the broth.  It’s tallow.  Skim it from the top, but save it!  You can use it to cook in as you would use lard.
 
 
How do you like using your bone broth?
