superhuman medicinal bone broth

superhuman medicinal mushroom bone broth

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2-3 lbs of organic, grass-fed beef bone-marrow bones (with the marrow still in the bone) - I get mine frozen from my local ethical butcher. 

  • 2 organic carrots (I save the chopped off tops over time and store them in the freezer to use in broths)

  • 1/2 a large organic celery bunch (I save the celery hearts / bottoms and store them in the freezer to use in broths)

  • handful of organic parsley (I save the parsley stems and store them in the freezer to use in broths)

  • a big knob of organic fresh ginger

  • 1 large clove of organic fresh garlic

  • 1 tbsp wild pau d’arco bark

  • 1 tsp of wild stinging nettle (dried)

  • 1 tsp of organic raspberry leaf (dried)

  • 1 tsp of organic milk thistle (dried)

  • a few large pieces of organic dried nori (or your preferred sea vegetable)

  • medicinal mushrooms

  • a big pinch of sea salt

  • a splash of organic apple cider vinegar or the juice of 1/2 a lime or lemon

  • HOT TIPS:

    1- Do not overfill with water or the broth will simmer over the side of the slow cooker and cause a #hotmess

    2- After about 24 hours, your broth will have evaporated a decent amount of liquid; refill the pot with more water.

    3- You can also freeze broth cubes to extend the life of the broth, and keep it frozen. Pop broth cubes in smoothies, soups, etc; or store them in larger containers in the freezer to defrost and consume at a later date. *If you store broth in glass in the freezer make sure you completely cool the broth first or the glass jar will crack under temp change. Also, make sure your glassware is freezer-friendly; I’ve had many jars crack even when storing already cooled broth*

    4- Your broth should be extremely fatty. Once cooled, you should notice a thick layer of fat on the top, which is a sign you really made a successful broth. that fat is extremely nutrient dense and should not be discarded! The broth itself should be opaque, golden, and full of vitamins and minerals.

    5- Sourcing high-quality organic bones is absolutely imperative when making your own bone broth. Bones store not only minerals, but also heavy metals, so if an animal has led an unnatural lifestyle, not only will the broth lack nutritional value, but it could even be quite dangerous. On a metaphysical level, I genuinely believe we also store energy in our bones, and apart from not wanting to support unethical farming, your broth would contain the energy of a sad, tortured life. Opt for the highest quality bones (they will still be incredibly cheap) and don't be afraid to ASK QUESTIONS to your butcher. If you're unsure: ask. And if you're sure: dig a little deeper.
