…But it’s been a big deal for thousands of years! Broth made from animal bones has always been an integral part of the human beings nutrition, as it is a natural result of living sustainably and wasting nothing. So many health benefits are achieved through the long cooking process that is necessary to create a true broth. The main difference between a stock made with bones and broth is the length of time the pot is allowed to simmer. Stocks are prepared mostly for culinary purposes to add a level of richness and flavor to the finished dish, such as soups and sauces. A good kitchen will always have a stock simmering away on the back burner at some point during the day but it will inevitably be taken down and strained after a few hours. The pot on the stove with the intention to create a bone broth, on the other hand, will simmer through the night for at least 24hrs. It is this extended cooking time that allows for maximum mineral extraction to be captured in the cooking liquid.
Broth is becoming more and more popular these days as we come to realize how our modern food system is failing us and degenerative deceases seem to be the norm. Moving away from pesticide laced fruits and vegetables and nourishing our bodies with bone broth is a wonderful way to realize good health. Heirloom Kitchen is here to help!
We offer Organic Chicken Bone Broth, which is made with bones from whole chickens, that simmers for 24hrs and Grass-Fed Beef Bone Broth, which is made with beef knuckles (more collagen),that simmers for 48hr. Both processes begin with roasting the bones to a deep caramelized finish that adds a wonderful depth of flavor to the broth. A splash of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar is added to help pull the minerals and collagen from the bones and aromatic vegetable are added towards the end of the cook for more flavor and a boost of vitamins.
