In a previous blog, I mentioned that I make a roast chicken every Sunday. I also make tarragon chicken salad and chicken stock or bone broth with the bones from the roast.
We recently got a slow cooker and are trying various recipes. When I found this one for bone broth, I thought, why not give it a try. I have always heard about chicken soup being called the Jewish Penicillin by my Jewish friends. My friend Robin always has a batch available and is ready to bring it over whenever you are under the weather. Now, that’s a special friend!
I figured that if the basic chicken soup had medicinal benefits, bone broth must offer these same benefits and more.
Some of the tremendous benefits from eating bone broth include providing natural collagen, making your skin luminous, restoring cartilage, and the gelatin acts as a cushion between your bones. A cup of broth a few times a week really makes a difference and seems to have great effects on our joints. Some say that bone broth is The Fountain of Youth.
Here is an easy recipe for bone broth that can be made in a slow cooker.
