Bone broth is one of the most nourishing foods you and your baby can consume. Bone broth is easily digestible, nutrient dense, with a rich source of minerals which boosts your babies immunity.
1 Hagens Broth Pack
2 TBSP apple cider vinegar (necessary to leach minerals from bones)
Water to cover
Optional: Herbs (here you can add any herbs you like, such as parsley, thyme, rosemary etc.)
Add all ingredients to a large pot or slow cooker and fill with water until it completely covers the bones.
If using a pot, bring to just below boiling point then reduce to a simmer. Gently simmer with the lid off for a further 3-5 hours or until the liquid reduces by about half; once reduced by half, it is ready.
If you are using a slow cooker, simmer on the lowest heat for 12-24 hours.
Strain the broth using a fine sieve, and discard solids.
Place in airtight glass containers or ice cube trays. If storing in ice cube trays, once frozen, transfer the broth ice cubes to a freezer proof dish; these are perfect to add to your baby’s purees.
Notes: The broth will keep in the refrigerator for up to 7 days in an airtight container, or up to 6 months in the freezer. You can find this recipe in Luka’s book, Milk to Meals.
