Benefits of Homemade Broth

jar of broth

There are at least a dozen websites and blogs with bone broth recipes.  Chris Kresser notes the health benefits of bone broth, mainly the mineral content, which are easy to absorb (Kresser, 2011).  Beyond the health benefits, it’s definitely cheaper to make your own rather than relying on tetra packs and cans, void of nutrients.   Plan ahead, and have portions of homemade broth stored in your freezer for use in soups, stews, sauces…or even a hot cup with some freshly squeezed lemon juice.

Here are some recipe links and pictures of my last batch.  I store mine in 2 cup, freezer proof glass containers- red for chicken broth, blue for beef bone broth.
