Fighting The Virus From Your Kitchen

One of the best things you can do to promote your heath and build your immune system is consume bone broth.
To me, bone broth is simple, it’s timeless, and it’s where we can go when we want to get back to the basics.
 Bone broth is easier to make than you might think, and it has healing properties that go deeper than we can imagine.
Bone broth is high in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. It also contains a high amount of collagen, which may help support bone and joint health.

  1. Simply save the bones from your roasted chicken (including legs and wings that may have been on the serving platter), and add to a large pot or Dutch oven. 
  2. I also included the lemon wedges and rosemary that were cooked with our whole roasted chicken, but this is optional.
  3. Then simply top with filtered water until generously covered
  4. Next, add in a bit of salt to season the broth 
  5. Then add 1-2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar, which is added primarily as the acidity breaks down the collagen and makes it more abundant in the broth. You can also sub lemon juice, but we prefer apple cider vinegar.
  6. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover. Cook for at least 8 hours, or until reduced by 1/3 or 1/2, leaving you with 6-8 cups of bone broth. The more it reduces, the more intense the flavor becomes and the more collagen is extracted. 
  7. Strain and use or store.
