The Benefits of Homemade Bone Broth…Made Simple with an Instant Pot!

Instant Pot Lux 8QT 6-1 Multi-Use Programmable Pressure Cooker

Mommypotamus says: 

“This Instant Pot bone broth recipe is so much easier than babysitting a pot on the stove top for 12+ hours, and it’s the perfect way to make use of bones from a leftover roast chicken. Of course, you can also use beef marrow bones, lamb bones or pork bones.”

“Before we dive into the recipe, though, let’s talk about why it’s totally worth it to make homemade bone broth . . .”

Benefits of Bone Broth

Bone Broth contains:

  • Nutrients that keep you moving, pain-free: Specifically, I’m talking about glucosamine and chondroitin, which support joint function. (You can often find expensive supplements featuring these two nutrients at health food stores) (1)
  • Anti-aging components: Gelatin supports healthy digestion and strengthens hair, skin and nails. It also nourishes connective tissues with compounds including hyaluronic acid, which help to prevent premature skin sagging and cellulite. Broth also contains the amino acid proline, which is necessary for the production of collagen.
  • Detoxification support: Another amino acid found in bone broth is glycine, which helps with liver detoxification. Glycine is also essential for the production of glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that helps prevent premature aging
  • Minerals: When simmered, the veggie scraps in bone broth release a wide variety of minerals such as magnesium, calcium, manganese, iron, phosphorous, potassium, selenium, zinc and copper.

Mommypotamus says it best! The rest of her article tells how to cook down different types of bones, the specific ingredients to use for each, and instructions on using the Instant Pot.

To make the vegetable selection easier Lloyd Craft Farms has assembled 10 Bone Broth Kits (minus the bones). Each kit contains directions, celeriac (celery root) and fresh parsley which replaces celery in the recipe and gives it awesome flavor and more nutrients, 1# carrots, garlic bulb, onion, dried rosemary and thyme, and peppercorns. Cost is $15.

**The only items you’ll need to add are a chicken carcus or chicken bones left over from a meal (or other bones), 1 teaspoon of unrefined salt (Himalayan Pink, Real Salt, or Celtic Sea Salt), water (suggest non-chlorinated), and 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar (Bragg’s is perfect!). Bee Healthy can help!

Why Lloyd Craft Farms veggies? They are fresh and locally grown using organic principles, which we think is better for you. Broth can be used in so many meals–Mommapotamus lists that, too! Text 431-1219 to reserve your kit, pick it up Thursday or Friday at Bee Healthy, 635 Big Horn Ave. Only 10 kits are available at this time!

Thanks, The Farmer’s Wife
