A Collagen Boosting Bone Broth

A Collagen Boosting Bone Broth

By Daniel Kirkham

Preparation Time | 5 mins

Cooking Time | 10-12 hours

Servings | 5

Collagen is a building block to a healthy and well functioning body and it starts to deplete in our 30s. Increase your collagen with this homemade broth with a little bit of extra collagen love. You can use this broth in your cooking or simply drink it down to dampen down those pesky cravings. Keep in the fridge if you’re planning to use it within days, or pop in the freezer to use later.

Method

Step 1: 

Simply take the bones off a chicken (other bones work too, but be sure to roast them first, as raw bones can have quite an "acquired" taste and they stink the house out too) and put into a slow cooker. 

Step 2:

Add some carrots, mushrooms, bay leaves, onion and garlic, about 5 - 10 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar (this helps to draw out the nutrients) and 1.5L of water. 

Step 3: 

Cook low and slow for 24 hours and then simply drain and store it in jars. Once the broth has settled, the fat that rises to the surface can be used for cooking and roasting and makes lovely scrambled eggs. The bone broth should keep for at least a week in the fridge and for 6 months in the freezer

Ingredients

  • Leftover bones from whatever you have cooked and eaten e.g. the carcass of a whole chicken. 
  • 5- 10 tbsp of Apple cider vinegar
  • 1.5 litres of Water
  • 2 Carrot
  • A handful of Mushrooms
  • 2 Bay Leaves
