Bone broth is simply fabulous for your health! It is incredibly nutritious and health boosting whilst also very easy to make and we have recently added beef bones that are perfect for making broth to our product range. The below is a traditional recipe from our Group Wellness Ambassador, Vladia Cobrdova, which also adds some immune boosting foods to help keep you healthy, nourished and glowing this winter.
3 big beef bones grass fed
1 stalk of celery
1 carrot whole with skin
1 big clove of garlic smashed with skin
2 small potatoes with skin
1 knob of ginger
2 x tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup of goji berries
1 bunch of kale stalks (we use kale stalks at aboutlife as part of our hate waste program but any veggies with roots stalks and skin can be used)
2 x teaspoon of Himalayan salt
6 x peppercorns
1/2 knob of turmeric
Place all the ingredients into a large pot, cover with filtered water and cook on the lowest heat for 24 hrs. I usually start just after I get home from work and the next day, when I’m back, the broth is ready to take off. Cool and strain before putting into fridge. the chilled broth will have layer of fat on the top, skim this fat off and place liquid broth into freezer bags so you can leave in freezer until you need to use. Use as a broth in curries, soups, for poaching meat, fish or veggies and cooking rice or grains such quinoa, freekah, millet.
Enjoy throughout winter to stay well protective against viruses and colds and you can find bags of bones in our freezers priced at $2.50 per kg!!
