Healing Bone Marrow Broth

Vibrant Method Test Kitchen “Original Recipe”.

Bone Marrow Broth is a common healing food that is now being recognized for its incredible health benefits ranging from overcoming food intolerances and allergies, improving joint health, reducing cellulite, creating a youthful skin tone, and boosting the immune system. Nutrition researchers Sally Fallon and Kaayla Daniel of the Weston A. Price Foundation explain that bone broths contain minerals in forms that your body can easily absorb: calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur and others. They contain chondroitin sulphates and glucosamine, the compounds sold as pricey supplements to reduce inflammation, arthritis, and joint pain. Broth can be consumed plain with a little salt, ground pepper and crushed garlic, or used to braised and roast meats, as a base stock for soups and stews, and when braising vegetable. Add a small amount to your pet's food for added nutrient benefits.

Method
Slow Cooker Preparation
  1. Place bones, peeled garlic cloves, water, and apple cider vinegar into a crock pot and cover with lid.
  2. Cook on low for 12-48 hours. The longer it cooks, the more restorative nutrients, collagen and gelatin get pulled from the marrow bones.
  3. You can also add in vegetables towards the end of the process such as onions, garlic, carrots, and celery for added nutrient value.
  4. Strain out solids and store in glass container for refrigerator use or BPA-free plastic containers for freezer storage.
  5. After cooking, the broth will cool and a layer of fat will harden on top. This layer protects the broth beneath. Discard this layer only when you are about to eat the broth
Stove Top Preparation
  1. Place bones into a large stock pot and cover with water.
  2. Add two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to water prior to cooking. This helps to pull out important nutrients from the bones.
  3. Fill stock pot with filtered water. Leave plenty of room for water to boil.
  4. Heat slowly. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to simmer for at least six hours. Remove scum as it accumulates on top.
  5. Cook slow and at low heat for up to 48 hours. A low and slow cook time is necessary in order to fully extract the nutrients in and around bone.
  6. You can also add in vegetables such as onions, garlic, carrots, and celery for added nutrient value.
  7. After cooking, the broth will cool and a layer of fat will harden on top. This layer protects the broth beneath. Discard this layer only when you are about to eat the broth
Recipe Notes

I like to cook mine until the meat is falling away from the bones. I make this just before bed and it’s ready in the morning for later use. ~Atali
