Bone broth is always wildly popular through the winter in real food circles. It’s an awesome, nutrient-dense food full of wonderful gelatin and minerals. If you learn how to make bone broth right, you can pull many minerals out of the bones. The bones will soften and easily snap under a little pressure. That’s a sure sign that mineral migration into your bone broth has happened.
Bone broth is a ‘found food’ for many people. That means it can be made out of scraps instead of purchased ingredients, making it highly economical when money is tight. But I often see new real foodies not maximizing the nutritional punch and spending too much money on stock making. Here are the five biggest mistakes you might be making with your bone broth.[Read more…] about The Five Biggest Bone Broth Mistakes You Might Be Making
The Bone Broth Marathon is back!
This saucy recipe is best made with homemade, unsalted stock. Because the stock is concentrated down to become a very rich sauce, a pre-salted stock would become too salty in this recipe. It’s a good way to get plenty of stock into your family without having to hear ‘SOUP?!? AGAIN??’ out of your kids.
This recipe is one I can guarantee the family will eat. If we’ve had a bad recipe test or sub-par meal, this recipe is at the top of the list of things to fix to make them happy again.

Leek and Sweet Potato Soup is a yummy soup using bone broth. It is easy to make. Leeks are in the onion family, but are milder. They are one of my favorite vegetables.
In order to keep grit out of your meal, you have to wash leeks well. They contain many layers and grow in sandy soil, so they often have sand trapped between the layers. To prepare them for cooking, slice off the end and the tips then cut the leek in half length-wise. Slice each length into thin half-moons and place into a large bowl of water. Swish the leeks through a few changes of water until you see no more sand, then drain them and proceed with your recipe.
I like to serve a cup of soup to each family member prior to dinner to help get a daily dose of stock into them. This is the best strategy for nights where I am not making a meal that is heavy with bone broth.
