After an overwhelming response to our last question & answer session (I received over 100 questions by email, and if I haven’t had a chance to answer you – please be patient with me), future question and answer sessions will focus on single topics. And this week, I’m answering your questions about bone broth – from why your stock never gels, to if you can use the fat from your broths to defining broth, stock and bone broth. Don’t forget to enter our bone broth kit giveaway.
Next week, our question and answer session will focus on natural bodycare and you can send questions to email@example.com. If you have a random question that you need answered, please post it to our facebook wall, it’ll still get answered!
