Bone Broths are HOT!

Have you heard the buzz about bone broths? It’s the hot new trend revolving around super old-school slow simmered broth made with roasted beef bones. What’s old is new again!

Slow simmering bone broths releases nutrients and minerals. It’s super healthy (packed with proteins, minerals, and healthy fats) and is full of collagen, gelatin, and glucosamine – all essential nutrients for healthy joints.

Bone broth is pretty much like the broth Great Grandma used to make! Just roast large beef bones in a 400 degree oven until roasty-toasty browned. When they’re done, put the bones in a large pot, but don’t forget about all that goodness in the bottom of your roasting pan! Deglaze with water or wine and scrape it all into the pot. You don’t want to wash all that flavor down the sink!

I like to pop in some mushroom stems, carrots, celery and onions. Cover the bones and veggies with water, bring to a simmer then cook till rich and delicious (some simmer theirs for at least 24 hours). Remember flavor takes time so don’t rush it.


Beautiful Photo of Bones ready to be made into Bone Broth from The Kitchn!

Here is a link for the best recipe and instructions for Bone Broth that I found online at The Kitchn and is the way I make it. There are quite a few recipes and techniques all over the internet but this recipe has the higher bone roasting temperature that I prefer. The Kitchn site has lots of tips, a photo tutorial and also recipes on how to use it.

Want something healthy to sip in your next cocktail? Bone broth is even being made into broth-tails! Yup, that’s right – spirit-spiked broth. From LA to NYC, it’s popping up on menus alongside shots of whiskey and tequila. Certainly soon to grace menus here too!

So get some broth simmering – your house will smell amazing!
