What it Bone Broth?
Bone broth has been making a comeback lately and we couldn’t be happier about it.
Bone broth is made the same way as stock. Bones are roasted, this improves the flavor of the bone broth.
Bone broths are typically simmered for a very long period of time. Often for 8 hours and sometimes in excess of 24 hours.
The purpose of these long cooks is to not only to produce gelatin from collagen-rich joints but also to release a small amount of trace minerals from bones.
When you’re finally done with your cooking, if done correctly, the bones will crumble when you press between your forefinger and your thumb.
You can make your bone broth, but you can also build your own house but why would you want to.
Our favorite bonw broth brand is option is Kettle & Fire.
Their bone broth passes a few tests which is why we allow it to be mixed with STUs.
- Bones from Grass fed cows
- High quality ingredients
- Great taste
There is a challenge though when you use such a high quality bone broth, the gelatin. This nutritional powerhouse can coagulate when it gets cold which can leave your cocktail a gloppy mess. YUCK
