Bone Broth

What is Bone Broth?

The popularized “bone broth” of today is really bone stock, a long-term cooking method that produces a relatively thinner liquid than traditional broth. But for the sake of simplicity, let’s assume that when we say bone broth we mean actually mean *stock_.

Making true bone broth would involve more actual meat – rather than bones that have been devoid of meat – and as a result, is a thicker liquid (due to the gelatin). Bone broth is simply a byproduct of simmering bones and connective tissue in water over a period of time.

How much time doesn’t really matter, as long as the cartilage has had a chance to break down to produce collagen-rich gelatin. Sometimes bone broth is cooked along with herbs, vegetables, and spices.

Bone broth advocates tout the health advantages, with benefits such as: it’s good for your gut, skin, hair, and nails. For more reading on the benefits of bone broth, I recommend reading the [8 Health Benefits of Bone Broth][1].
