Looking after your gut health is not just about eating the GoodBugs. Bone and meat broth, rich in gelatin and minerals are a staple in our house. It can be used in soups and gravies and for cooking rice. Bone broth can help reduce inflammation and heal the gut and aid digestion.
We collect up all the bones from each meal, and store them in the freezer. When the bag is full, we cover with water and simmer away for 6-24 hours. My favourite is a long bone broth that bubbles away for 24 hours and is made from all our leftover Bostock chicken bones. We can take one batch off after about 6 hours and then add more water and bring back to the boil for another 12 hours or more. We do not season it, so the flavour is neutral enough to add to our smoothies.
Congratulations to @bostockbrothers who were recently crowned supreme in the Outstanding New Zealand Food Producers My family love to eat their organic, free range chicken, confident that it is raised ethically and organically.
