Bone broth is a super nutrient-dense traditional food. It’s something our grandparents (and their grandparents) made on the regular. Once canned soup and bouillon cubes hit the scene, we kind of forgot about the art of making bone broth (to the detriment of our health!) in favor of quick and easy alternatives.
Bone broth is a huge component of healing diets like GAPS (which is all about healing leaky gut). Animal bones contain lots of minerals, and the joints are an excellent source of gelatin (read: very healing protein that most of us don’t get enough of). So I’m happy to see that it’s making a comeback in the foodie scene these days. In Portland you can visit a bone broth bar, and you can order high quality bone broth online from The Brothery in San Diego… Although if someone hands you bone broth from a Keurig, you should probably politely decline.
By far, the most economical way to enjoy bone broth is to make your own… Here’s how you do it!
