Bone Broth Recovery Recipe
Incredibly nourishing, filled with collagen to help your tendons, bones and muscles recover (and make your skin glow – added bonus!) – it’s the most natural way to get a healthy dose of collagen and is SO easy to make. My husband and I usually roast a chicken every week and then either put the bones and carcass into a ziplock and throw it into the freezer for a later date, or immediately put it into a big pot to make broth and soup.
When I am ready to make broth I do what we call a “fridge dump” – every week is different and every week creates something delicious!
To make the broth, put the bones and carcass of a whole chicken or turkey into a HUGE pot, fill the water up nearly to the top (but leave enough room won’t boil over). Add ANY and all veggies or herbs you want: carrots, green onion (low FODMAP), onion, celery, mint, basil, tomatoes, parsnips, celeriac, cilantro stems, parsley, dill, ginger, red pepper, lemon slices, etc – add as little or as many veggies as you want. The more veggies, the more flavor!
Bring the liquid to a boil, then turn down and let simmer for up to 5 hours, but as few as 2.5. I typically keep filling the pot with water to keep the water level topped off. Salt and Pepper to taste. Once done, let the broth cool and strain out all the bones and veggies and discard. Pour the broth into jars and either store in the fridge or freezer for later use. Enjoy!
