There is nothing like a homemade broth; the rich and savory base to soups and stews. It’s an essential aspect of good cooking. Homemade bone broth offers the depth of flavor that store bought counterparts simply cannot beat. It’s also an extraordinarily inexpensive food with such a high nutritive value. Beyond its culinary uses and economic benefits, bone broth is remarkably healthful.
Homemade broth is rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and other trace minerals which are easily absorbed by the body. Bone broth even contains glucosamine and chondroitin – which are thought to help mitigate the negative effects of arthritis and joint pain. In addition homemade bone broths are often rich in gelatin. Gelatin is an inexpensive source of supplementary protein. It helps to support the connective tissue in your body and also helps the fingernails and hair to grow well and strong.
So bring tradition back into the kitchen with deeply flavorful and versatile bone broths which provide the base for soups, sauces, gravies as well as providing a cooking medium for grains and vegetables. It is such a simple, cost effective and healthful way to improve the life of your family. Yum!
