According to an old South American proverb, "good broth will resurrect the dead." In Chinese medicine, bone broth is used to support digestive health, purify the blood, and strengthen the kidneys. It is rich in minerals that support the immune system and contains healing compounds like collagen, glutamine, glycine and proline, that heal the gut lining and reduce intestinal inflammation. It can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles and eliminate cellulite, as it helps to strengthen connective tissue.
Making bone broth is a similar process to making a stock, however, there are a couple of key points that you need to follow in order to ensure that your broth is worthy of "resurrecting the dead."
*The apple cider vinegar helps to extract the minerals from the bones.
*You can add any vegetables and aromatics that you like, such as carrot, onion, celery, bay leaves, peppercorns and fresh thyme or parsley.
*You can use beef, veal or chicken bones.
*Beef and veal bones will require more cooking.
*You can also cook the broth in the oven (120°C/250°F).
