Bone broth is a staple food in our home. Every week we roast a local chicken and it is a given that the bones will make their way into a pressure cooker, slow roaster or soup pot to become the base nourishment for so many other meals. The benefits of regular bone broth and gelatin in the diet include healthier skin, hair and nails but these are just side benefits to the amazing depth of flavor and richness that gets added to all the meals during the week.
Broths and stocks, soups, stews and sauces find a well-loved and much deserved place in kitchens throughout the world. While there are many places to purchase pre-made broths in the stores and online they tend to be very expensive and lack the complexity and richness of a homemade broth. Pretty much all you need to make a broth is some bones, water and a heat source but there are some tricks that will help you to yield a more full flavor as well as what to do with the broths once you have made them.
That’s where the Broth and Stock from the Nourished Kitchen cookbook comes in. It is the go-to guide for making sure that this nutritional staple is always on hand and readily adapted to whatever is in your kitchen.
