Paleo Bone Broth



Okay I've been reading about bone broth for a little while and finally decided that I need to try it. It is a fantastic way to load up on minerals and nutrients like calcium, magnesium, phosphorous and other trace minerals. Not to mention gelatin. This stuff is GREAT for the immune system, bones, joints, intestinal tract, not to mention cellulite. And it is SO easy (if a little time-consuming). 


INGREDIENTS
1-2lb bones (any beef or chicken bones will do)
2-3 tbsp cider Vinegar
Whole head of garlic
Salt
Water


PROCESS
1. Place all the ingredients in a large pot or slow cooker. Make sure you cover bones in water
2. If using a stove, bring to a boil and then turn right down and let it simmer. With a slow cooker, simply switch onto low. Skim off any scum that rises to the surface.
3. Leave either option for between 6 (for chicken or fish bones) to 24 hours depending on the type of bones and the concentration of the stock you would like
4. Switch off after desired time and let it cool
5. Remove bones and strain the mixture into glass jars and store in the fridge or freeze
6. Heat up and drink or add stock to dishes when cooking
