Bone broth has amazing immunity boosting properties, healing minerals like calcium, glutamine, magnesium and collagen. All of which promote stronger immunity, foster digestive and intestinal health. As well as reduce inflammation and improve joint health.
Ingredients
  • 1 package of Chicken Feet (in the freezer section of my co-op)
  • 1-2 large beef bones - if you can get them sliced into 1-2" sections, even better (the more joints the better on the bones)
  • 8 cups of water or fill your slow cooker to about 1" from top
  • 1 carrot -peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 onions quartered
  • 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar
  • 6-8 slim slices of ginger root
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Place bones, vegis, spices and apple cider vinegar into the bottom of a crock pot.
  2. Cover with water.
  3. Make sure that the bones are covered with water (add more if needed).
  4. Cover slow cooker,and set on low (by cooking it on low you keep the skum to a minimum) for 8 to 24 hours.
  5. Strain the broth through cheese cloth or a strainer, which will filter the bones and the bits,
  6. Discard all the bits and bones.
  7. Place in a glass storage dish, and chill in the fridge, it will be jelly like when you take it out,
  8. Or freeze in quart sized containers.
  9. Once chilled there may be a layer of fat, you can chip
  10. this off and discard.
  11. Warm up 8oz or so at a time, place in a mug and drink!
  12. Also use this like chicken broth, and add to soups for stock, cook vegis in it, or cook grains with it instead of water. Use your imagination!
