Homemade bone broth is one of the most medicinal food items an individual can consume. How to make it is extremely easy, and preserve it is even easier! Blog contributor, Mandy Kerns, teaches you how to make bone broth using lamb bones.

Homemade Bone Broth

Homemade bone broth is consumed for both medicinal and cooking purposes. It has been known to help with inflammation, heal the gut, and work toward soothing, and minimizing, joint issues.

The Benefits of Bone Broth

Any type of bones can be used when making homemade bone broth, but the most beneficial are from grass fed or pasture raised animals. The process of making bone broth is done by slow cooking the bones to draw the minerals, calcium, vitamins, and collagen from the bones.

Homemade Bone Broth – Ingredients

The secret to successfully withdrawing all the goodness from the bones? White vinegar. A 1/4 cup of white vinegar added to the beginning of the slow cooking process will draw out the minerals and calcium from the bones. Also, adding herbs such as oregano, thyme, sage, and garlic assist in creating an immune boosting nutrient rich item. In addition to herbs feel free to add spices such as freshly peppercorns.

“I had long ago dismissed the idea of making my own stock.  Why on earth would I consider such a thing when Costco sells organic chicken broth by the case and Whole Foods was a mile from my house at the time?  Oh, I had so much to learn!!! The nourishment that the low-and-slow-from-scratch-method could provide my family I had yet to learn…until the trip to Italy
that changed so much about my life!” – Mandy
