Bone broth is made with bones that have bits of meat still clinging unlike “stock”. It is also generally thinner than “stock”. Most people use the terms interchangeably.  It has been made for centuries. Roasted bones will add flavor to the broth and will darken the color. Bone broth is now a popular health food. Try it?

I am pleased to bring you this recipe that includes fresh herbs for an added bit of flair.

Bone Broth

Homemade lamb broth with herbs. Use it to reduce inflammation and add strength to joints. Make a larger batch by doubling, tripling or quadrupling the ingredients. Store the extra frozen or pressure can it for even longer shelf life. Use it as a nutritious hot beverage or add it to your soups and stews.
