Sunday night ritual.....
Bone broth lovingly prepared every Sunday night in this house and when you consider the health benefits of this extraordinary food you will understand why! When it comes to 'food as medicine' this one is unbeatable!
Nutrient dense and full of flavour, it provides us with collagen for our skin and also to heal a leaky gut so if you have food intolerances, this is a must for digestive health. It provides minerals for healthy bones and even glucosamine and chondroitin! It supports the immune system, fights inflammation.....I could go on. In short, this is something you want in your diet.
After eating your roast chicken, pick of all the last bits of meat and save in a bowl in the fridge for soups, stews, curry etc.
Place the carcass in the slow cooker (or could simmer for 4-5 hrs in a pan) and cover with a carrot, an onion, some peppercorns, few bay leaves and a splash of apple cider vinegar which improves extraction from the bones. Cover with water and leave on a low setting.
Now go to bed and in the morning you have the most wonderful chicken stock which you can drink straight from your stock pot as a beverage or use in soups etc.
In New York and London, you can buy a mug of this for around £7.....or you could just make your own for free!
