Lisa Kilgour’s Homemade Bone Broth
Not only is bone broth your new-age BFF for warmth and energy, it’s also one of the most important foods for gut health. “A long simmered bone broth is a source of gelatin that heals and seals the gut,” says Kilgour. “It’s also chock-full of easy to absorb minerals which the body needs for healing.” You can easily freeze bone broth for later in ice cube trays or large quart containers, so you’ll have a go-to detox drink whenever you need it.
- Place all ingredients in a large stock pot and set out at room temperature for an hour. This begins the process of leaching the minerals from the bones.
- Move pot to the burner and place over medium heat to create a low simmer. Ideally around 180˚F, which is just barely bubbling.
- Keep at this temperature for at least 12 hours, but as long as 72. Film will collect on the surface and you can remove as necessary with a spoon.
- Strain out the bones and vegetable material and move liquid to storage containers, or freeze for later.
Place all ingredients in a crock pot, and simmer on low heat for one day. From this, you can remove and filter the liquid into jars, then add more water and simmer for another day. Repeat until bones are falling apart.
