So here is how we prepare our weekly bone broth.
We use normally marrow bones from the local organic shop.
2 carrots, some celery, onion, garlic, canned tomatoes pure, himalayan salt, oregano, thyme, cinnamon sticks and apple cider vinegar
1. Blanch the bones: cover them with water and cook them for about 15 minutes. rinse them.
2. Put them into a roaster pan and in the oven for about 45 minutes r at 180°C
3. Add the vegetables to the bones and cover the bones with the tomatoes pure (use a spatula as they will be hot)
4. Put the roaster back into the oven for about 30 minutes.
5. Take out the bones and place them into a large stock pot.
Add cool water and 1 spoon of cider vinegar and let it sit for 20 minutes. The acid will help the nutrients in the bones to come out.
Add the vegetables, salt, pepper and herbs and bring all to boil.
Once it reaches the boiling point low the fire and simmer for the next 12 to 24 hours.
During the first hours of simmering, remove the impurities that float to the surface. ( You will have to remove less impurities if you use bones from grass-fed and healthy animals).
30 minutes before finishing add 1 or 2 cloves of garlic and a bit of parsleyStrain and remove all the bits of bone and vegetable. Wait to cool down and store it in glass jars in the fridge for up to 5 days, or freeze for later.
