Here's one recipe with bone broth that my daughter and her friend loved:

Potato Leek Soup:
Ingredients:
1. One bunch of leeks (anywhere from 2-3) VERY well washed... they tend to harbor sand... cut in very thin rounds.
2. Quarter cup organic butter
3. 3 baking potatoes diced, leave the skins on (about 2- 2.5 pounds of any potato will do)
3. 6-8 cups bone broth (I made mine with a lot of garlic and a bay leaf)
4. Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
* MAKE SURE YOU WASH YOUR LEEKS VERY WELL
* Saute the leeks in butter until the white ones are becoming a bit clear in a large soup pot.
* Add the broth and potatoes
* Cook it all together until potatoes are soft
* I use a hand stick beater to mash up the potatoes so that the soup still has visible lumps of leek and potatoes, but the body of it is creamy. An electric beater can also be used. You may choose to add some water or more broth at this point.

Serve with fresh hot bread and cheese.
Cracked pepper on top.
I like to stir in a tablespoon of Brewer's Yeast for my B vitamins tableside cuz I like the taste.

Hey Team!

Now that its cooler, I've been making and enjoying Bone Broth/homemade gelatin on a daily basis. Its easy to make, just pile in a bunch of bones, add a few teaspoons of a good apple cider vinegar, several cups of water, perhaps some spices like peppercorns, garlic and ginger, bring to a boil, put on low, cover and simmer overnite or all day... add water as it evaporates. I've not made it in a crockpot, but I bet that would work well.

Bone broth is full of collagen, gelatin, minerals... things that can be in short supply in our diets.

Some uses of bone broth:
*Add a quarter cup of bone broth can be added to Kale and other veggies instead of oil to lightly steam stirfry them
* Warm a cup in a mug, with a few scallions, thin sliced mushrooms and teaspoon of nutritional yeast to give it some additional texture and umami taste.


I've made mine over the last few weeks with beef bones, chicken bones, chicken and ducks feet.

The feet produced the most amount of gelatin, the beef bones the least. You can get the feet from your butcher, or at an Asian market. Be aware, though, its not a nice visual to see them floating around in the pot... definitely not for the faint of heart! The chicken feet need to be boiled for five minutes first, and this water disgarded, the nails clipped so that the collagen leaks out.

There are plenty of how to videos on the internet, if you need visuals and exact measures.

To your good health!
