Broth is an essential component in many recipes, not the least of which are the massive amounts in soups. But, as usual, the stuff sold in the stores is a mystery of complicated chemicals - including gluten. Gluten? There are flour products in broth? Anyway, I'm here to tell you that there's a better way, and it's super cheap (depending on how valuable your time is, I guess...but I consider this to be health insurance, so I'm willing to donate the time needed). If you doubt, skim over this blog post on all the benefits of bone broth - the biggest one that stands out to me is that bone broth is essential to making your bones stronger. That's right, consuming the minerals and marrow from bones helps strengthen your own bones.
Bone broth! It's not particularly pretty, but neither are health problems. I'm sure this will enrich soups all through the fall, and canning more this winter will help warm up the house on cold days.
