Making an immune supportive bone broth, seems like a good thing to do during this cold winters day. Here is one of my favorite recipes that will warm and nourish your body and it’s immune system.
1-2 lbs venison soup bones (substitute any soup bones from healthy animals)
5 quarts water
1 onion (diced)
5 garlic cloves (crushed)
1 cup Turkey Tail mushrooms (chopped)
1/2 cup Reishi mushrooms (chopped)
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 Tbs salt
3 Tbs of coconut oil (melted), or preferred oil.
Feel free to get creative, adding any other ethically harvested, or organically grown herbs, medicinal fungi, or spices you would like.
Place bones on a baking pan. Cover with oil and sprinkle some of your salt and pepper over your bones. Roast in the oven at 350 for 15 minutes. Pull out of the oven and let cool.
Place all ingredients in a large cook pot, bring to a hard boil, turn down to simmer for 8-24 hours. Add more water as needed. I usual let cool over night and return to the range top in the morning. It maybe more convenient to use a large crock-pot for some.
After simmering, let cool and strain. The bone broth is then ready to use, can, or freeze.
Happy broth makin!
Note: Please use ethically wild-crafted or organically grown ingredients when possible.
