The art of cooking broth, or stock as it is also known, has been around for thousands if years.
It is defined as a liquid food preparation which involves simmering water in which animal or fish bones have been added and cooked slowly to extract nutrients.
Traditionally known as a cure it all for all ailments, bone broth is a known superfood which costs very little, especially if you use a leftover carcass or bones from your Sunday roast.
Broth or stock contains minerals and nutrients in a form that are easy for the body to digest. Calcium, magnesium, phosphorous are all present in abundance, as are the likes of glucosamine which is often found in expensive supplements used to treat joint pain.
Due to it's rich calcium content bone broth is an important part of a Paleo diet. It should be consumed regularly as is, or as a base to sauces, soups and gravies.
