The benefits of bone broth are well known – do your research on this. Here’s a simple recipe from Saifedean Ammous. (Yes, the grand Mufti of the young Austrians is also a prolific nutrition researcher).
HOW TO MAKE BONE BROTH
Or How to go on a carnivore diet for approximately $0/day. One of the healthiest & most nutritious foods you could ever eat is thrown away by your butcher, or sold for very cheap. Here’s my recipe for the easiest & most reliable way of enjoying it.
Place bones in a pot, cover with water, and add a splash of vinegar. Bring to a boil. Let simmer for a few minutes. Throw all the water into the sink. This is the easiest & fastest way to wash & prepare the bones in my experience.
Put the bones back in the pot and cover with water. Add salt, bay leaves, and spices. I like garlic powder and curcumin. Heat the pot: On a slow cooker, or slow heat, for 24 hours.
On high heat or pressure cooker, for 2-4 hours.
Preservation and Use in Cooking
You can drink now, but I recommend 1 more step.
Pour the broth into jars or pots, and let it rest in the fridge overnight. You will see a thick layer of fat develop on top it. Remove that and use it for cooking. It is better than all the cooking oils in your supermarket. The broth is now far less fatty, which makes it tastier.
The broth should turn into a jelly consistency. If that does not happen then you need: – More cooking time – More bones – Less water – More gelatinous bones Keep trying until you get it right!
Using What’s Left
We’re not done! The leftover bones, and the surrounding meat, which you could get from your butcher for free or very cheap, have now been cooked into delicious tenderness. You can make an entire delicious meal out of that. The bone can become as soft as biscuit wafers.
My preference for tastiest broths: 1- duck 2- lamb 3- turkey 4- chicken 5- beef Beef generally takes the longest to cook.
