Broth soups have long been used, by our ancestors, to help boost the immune system. But, what most people don't know is that Bone Broth has been used to help alleviate more than just colds, and flus. Numerous doctors and nutritionists swear by bone broth for the aiding in digestion, colon, and intestinal issues including leaky gut. It can help get rid of chronic diarrhea, constipation, and even some food intolerances. It is a staple among people on the Auto Immune Protocol diet a key component in the holistic community to help in sending Auto Immune Diseases into remission.
Now, I am not talking about boxed store bought bone broth that has been drained and preserved. I am talking about fresh made bones that have been slow-cooked for 72 hours to release known healing compounds such as collagen, proline, glycerine, and glutamine that have the power to aid in transforming your health.
Research has even shown that bone broths contains minerals in a form that are easily absorbable; such as Glucosamine, chondroitin sulphates, glucosamine. These are the same compounds that can be found in pricey supplements to help reduce inflammation, arthritis, and joint pain.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED: A Large Crockpot/Pressure Cooker Cutting Board Good Knife Mason Jars Tupperware
2 LBS of Grass-fed Organic Bones (Meat is Optional)
1 bunch of Green Onions and/or 1 Brown Onion (I like to use both)
3 celery stalks 1 bulb garlic 1/4 cup fish oil 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar 12 cups alkaline water 1 4 inch piece of ginger root 1 inch turmeric root 1 small bunch of fresh oregano
Put the 2lb's of Grass-fed Organic Beef Bone (and red meat) into a large crockpot
Chop Green Onions/Brown Onion into approx. 2 inch pieces. Then, drop them into your crockpot.
Slice your Carrots. Then, drop them into your crockpot.
Peel and smash the cloves of your garlic bulb. Then, drop it into your crockpot.
Slice the ginger root and turmeric root. Then, drop it into your crockpot.
Chop your orgeano. Then, drop it into your crockpot.
Add 1/4 cup of salt, and 1/8 cup of black pepper to your crockpot.
Add 12 cups of alkaline water, fish oil, and apple cider vinegar to your crockpot and cover.
Let the soup cook for 72 hours on low. If using a pressure cooker I have read it only takes 3 hours to cook. I do not have one, yet, though, so I am not positive on the timing. Check your bones to be sure
Before removing your soup check that the inside of your bones have hallowed out. Or gently push out the in the insides out with the edge of a spoon of knife. The collagen and glutamine, that you cook out of the inside of the bone, can help to heal and seal your gut.
I recommend, separating the solids from the liquid and keeping them separate by using a straimner. I fill mason jars with the liquid and put the veggies and meat in a Tupperware. I like to use the veggies and meat for a salad.
Once your soup is ready cover it and transfer it to the fridge for approximately 4-5 hours or until the soup fat solidifies on the surface. Use a large metal spoon and skim off the fat that has rises to top, to "degrease it".
Voila. Your broth is ready to enjoy! Heat it u[, or drink it cold, straight from mason jars.
