If you have heard about the incredible health benefits of bone broth but have no idea where to start, then this quick bone broth for beginners recipe has got you covered! Bone broth is rich in minerals like calcium and magnesium that are easily absorbed by the body, as well as collagen that is fantastic for skin, gut and joint health. If you’re sick, drinking bone broth is an easy way to get extra nutrients in. You can also add it to soups for extra flavour.
16 cups of filtered water
1/3 cups apple cider vinegar
Sea salt to taste
1 full head of fresh organic garlic
1 kilo of bones (whole chicken carcass, beef, turkey necks – any bones you have)
Place all the ingredients into a large pot and bring to the boil. Reduce to a low setting and allow to barely even simmer for 24-36 hrs.
Turn off heat and allow to cool.
Strain the stock and divide into glass jars to freeze for whenever you need a soup stock, or to drink on its own. Stock keeps well in the fridge for 48-72 hrs.
TIP: You can add other ingredients like onion, celery, herbs and garlic for extra flavour.
