Bone broth is a healthy, nutritious broth made from cooking beef marrow bones and connective tissue in a long, slow process. This process extracts collagen and other beneficial nutrients from the bones, resulting in a nutrient-dense broth that provides many health benefits you can‘t get from eating meat alone. Bone broth can be made from other animals as well, including chickens, turkeys, fish, and pigs. To make Morning Glory Farms Bone Broth, we only use bones from our pasture-raised cows. This helps support our whole-animal, or “head-to tail” use philosophy.
Morning Glory Farms bone broth is delivered frozen. In its solid state, the broth will show some separation. Seasonings may settle on the bottom of the container. The fat, a natural component of all bone broth, will rise to the top. Bone broth can be stored frozen for three months and up to seven days in the fridge. In it’s thawed form, or at room temperature, bone broth has a gelatinous consistency. This is normal and a telltale trait of a good bone broth. The gel texture is a result of the collagen content in a high-quality bone broth. If the bone broth was previously frozen, upon thawing, there may remain a layer of fat on the top. To incorporate, simply heat and mix well. If you would like to remove the fat for later use or for preference, simply skim it off the top. In heated form, bone broth is very similar to a soup or stock. Heat and enjoy.
Depending on why you choose to enjoy bone broth, how you do so may differ.
SIP IT, LIKE A SOUP:
Alone, bone broth is typically enjoyed like a soup. Just heat and sip. Or slurp. Add seasoning to taste.
Tip: If heating bone broth without skimming the fat, remember that water and oils do not mix. The fat will form a natural barrier at the top of the liquid, which could seal in heat. Take care to mix well when testing for temperature and taste as the underlying liquid may be hotter than you might expect.
SIP IT, LIKE A TEA:
Believe it or not, bone broth can be enjoyed–and is delicious–sweetened. Heat, then stir in 1-2 Tbsp local honey or your favorite sweetener, to taste. Ask about our Bland Bone Broth, made with fewer seasonings for a milder flavor and greater flexibility!
COOKING WITH BONE BROTH
Bone broth can be substituted as a nutritionally dense alternative to any broth, such as chicken stock, vegetable stock or beef stock. The fat from the broth can also be used in most places where grease or oil is required, such as for frying, to make gravy or roux or to add flavor to your favorite recipes. Use bone broth to thin soups or stews, for added nutrition.
FOR JOINTS AND ARTHRITIS
Drink 8 to 12 oz. one to two times a day. Make bone broth the first thing that hits your stomach in the morning and the last thing you eat at night, to increase nutrient absorption. (2) Sip for muscle & joint recovery following your work out.
FOR OVERALL HEALTH
Add bone broth to your daily diet. Sip 8 oz. first thing in the morning, drink it as a soup for lunch or cook with it as you would any type of animal or vegetable stock.
FOR LEAKY GUT SYNDROME AND DIGESTIVE SUPPORT
Drink or sip 8 to 12 oz. of bone broth one to two times a day, up to 16 oz. twice daily. While this seems like a lot, the goal is to “seal then heal” the gut. Higher initial concentrations of collagen help to heal the gut. Once that happens, then the digestive system, and thus other parts of the body, can start the healing process. (3)
FOR WEIGHT LOSS
Replace morning and afternoon snacks with 8-12 oz. of bone broth. Add a tablespoon of local honey to satisfy a sweet tooth or season to taste for a salty fix. (4)
