I got the idea to make bone broth the other day when I was listening to a bunch of Daniel Vitalis interviews on One Radio Network.
So, here is a rough recipe of it that I have made up.
Various turkey bones or bones you have available (make sure to have some long bones containing plenty of marrow) (save up bones in your freezer for future use)
2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
6-10 garlic cloves
2 slices of ginger (1/4 inch thickness, chopped)
red onion to taste (chopped)
5 fingerling potatoes, chopped
5 whole baby carrots
1 bay leaf
Juice of 1 lemon
Water to cover all ingredients
Put all ingredients in crockpot. Let steep for one hour, then plug in crockpot and cook on low for 24 hours. Add the following ingredients about 1 hour before end of cooking time:
salt to taste
pepper to taste
3 dehydrated sweet basil leaves
lavender to taste
At the end of cooking time, strain the broth out and store in glass containers. Use to make soups or other dishes, or drink broth by itself!
This picture is taken about 3 hours after starting cooking - the last 4 ingredients have not been added.
