Upgraded Bone Broth
This broth is great to use in soup recipes, and those hard-core folks can even try drinking it for a high-performance shot of healthy animal fat!
3 medium carrots, peeled and cut into rough chunks
3 stalks celery, peeled and cut into rough chunks
2 ½ pounds assorted beef marrow bones
1 fresh bouquet garni (your choice of fresh oregano, rosemary, thyme, sage, for example)
1 to 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 cup Upgraded Collagen per liter of broth (optional)
Sea salt to taste
In a large stockpot, lightly sauté the carrots and celery for a few minutes until translucent. Add the beef bones and bouquet garni and cover with water. Add the apple cider vinegar to the water, as it helps draw out the nutrients from the bones. Simmer on a low heat (do not boil) for anywhere between 8 and 14 hours. After your broth has reached the desired color and flavor, remove the bones and strain the vegetables out. Add the appropriate amount of collagen (if using) for the amount of broth and stir until dissolved. Optional: Add salt to taste at this point and then store in mason jars to freeze for future use.
