Here’s how I see it; My business, based here in the UK, makes bone broth. We pride ourselves on the sourcing and ethics behind each and every ingredient we use. We also refuse to make short cuts. We cook it for 24 hours and every ingredient we use is whole and in its original form.
However, bone broth is one of the most wonderful things to make yourself. Every time I made a batch at home I found it not only delicious and nourishing, but also hugely rewarding and satisfying to know I was using an ingredient that might have otherwise been thrown away or worse incinerated to avoid expensive waste removal and land fill. Bones, despite the sometimes gruesome or morbid imagery they can sometimes conjure; are a hugely untapped source of nutrition.
Despite our mission to buy well sourced bones and create great products, we also want to encourage and drive more people to opt for organic products, to use more of the animal, to challenge themselves to overcome any resistance to understand where meat comes from and to embrace and support ethical farming. Making bone broth is easy if you have the right equipment or set up, you also need time. But once you’ve made it a few times you can play around with it, add and remove things as you wish and make it your own.
One final tip. If you’re cooking organic meat at home and there’s a bone or carcass leftover – put them in the freezer until you have enough to make a batch of broth. They’ll soon add up.
