This comforting broth can be made from the bones, marrow, skin, feet, tendons and ligaments of chicken, lamb, bison etc. It’s made by bringing all to a boil and simmering for at least 24 hours. This extracts the maximum amount of vitamins, minerals, cartilage and marrow from the bones, making it super nutritious! You can drink the broth on its own or use as a base for soups and to cook your grains & beans.
