Bone broth is an increasingly popular health trend in the US known for alleviating symptoms of arthritis, for healing the digestive tract, and for being a natural botox alternative and cellulite reducer. Sold in New York City for nearly $9 a cup and used by the Los Angeles Lakers as a post-game remedy, bone broth has come a long way from simply being a healthy base for chicken soup.
While it’s great to have the option to order healthy bone broth to go, it’s much cheaper to make at home in your VitaClay. To prepare bone broth yourself, simply save produce scraps, bones and rinsed eggshells while preparing meals and add to a bag kept in the freezer. Once the bag is full, empty its contents into your VitaClay with water and, in order to extract the most nutrients from the bones, add a generous amount of apple cider vinegar.
Once your bone broth has cooled you may notice the presence of gel, which is a sign that your broth contains plenty of collagen and gelatin, the elements that help with digestive and joint health. Broth that doesn’t contain gel is still nutrient- and mineral-rich; there is perhaps less collagen in the bones used in that broth.
Enjoyed as is, in the morning or afternoon, your bone broth cooked in the VitaClay will keep in the fridge for up to five days.
It's best to make fresh bone broth, but you may freeze it for longer storage if you'd prefer. For convenience, freeze the broth in an ice cube tray and thaw individual cubes as necessary instead of keeping broth in one receptacle.
