According to Dr. Axe, “Bone Broth is one of the most healing foods you can consume.” Not only is it being recognized as for it’s great health benefits, but it also has a robust flavor far beyond store bought broth. And to top it off, you can make it in a crockpot! Just put the bones, along with vegetables and herbs in a crockpot, cover with purified water and cook on low for 24 to 48 hours.
Bone broth can be used for the following health benefits:
- Treat leaky gut
- Overcome food intolerances and allergies
- Joint health
- Reduce cellulite
- Boost immune system
- Help fight allergies and asthma
- Maintains Healthy Skin
- Help with detoxing
Storing Bone Broth: The recipe below makes a large batch so I pour it into approximately 6 ice cube trays after it’s strained. Then I transfer the ice cubes to a large plastic bag for easy access.
Uses for Bone Broth:
My favorite use for bone broth is chicken noodle soup. Just add some vegetables and your favorite healthy noodles. If you can’t resist the temptation to add some bullion, I would suggest using a paste like “Better than Bullion”.
You can also add a few cubes of the broth to rice or mashed potatoes to enhance the health benefits of these side dishes and also the flavor.
It’s also great for a healthy gravy! I use about 8 cubes and use oat flour and butter as a paste to thicken.
If you have any ideas for use, please let me know. I would love to hear from you!
