The leaves are turning and you’re craving something warm and nourishing on these cold Fall days. Something you can hold in your hands to warm them and feel the goodness as it travels to your belly.
IT’S SOUP TIME and the base to any good soup is a hearty, rich bone broth.
Most of us have spent time in our mother’s or grandmother’s kitchens, watching or helping them stir the pot of bones simmering into a beautiful stock. In today’s world, most of us just don’t have the time to spend all day at the stove. So here is the simplest, hands-free way to make a beautiful broth.
What follows is quite possibly the easiest recipe for ANY kind of bone broth your heart desires:
Crockpot Bone Broth
Place all bones and carcass parts in the largest crockpot you have
Add 1 quartered onion, 2-3 stalks celery (the leaves are the best!), and a chopped up carrot (peels on are great)
Add as much garlic as you wish (ginger is great too!)
Add any other seasonings that sound good to you
Cover with water
Cook for 8-10 hours on low (or more if you want)
Using a sieve, strain out all bits and pieces
Skim the layer of fat off the top
If desired, reheat and add vegetables of choice and meat to make an even heartier dish.
