What is Bone Broth?

I am bone broth’s biggest fan. Not only is it packed with nutrients, it uses up left over scraps (10 points for recycling!). 

I like to be super playful with my broths and try all different veggie scraps I can find. Although as a rule of thumb, your main ingredients should be onions, celery and carrots. Feel free to add in herb stems, leeks, shallots, onion peal, carrot peal, garlic (as well as the skin), fennel, lemon peal, crushed egg shells and the list continues. 

You just want to stay away from cruciferous veggies e.g. no cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower or brussels sprouts. Also, make sure everything you use is clean. You don’t want your broth to have any dirt in it. 

What is the different between stock and bone broth?

Broth requires a longer cooking time than stock, extracting more nutrients out of the bones. Which actually results in more flavour! 

You can freeze your broth and use it in soups, casseroles, dal or curry, you name it.
