Chicken Bone Broth -- 22 oz

$11.00
$1.50 Glass Deposit
Online ordering not available; Menu reopens Sunday mid-day

This flavorful broth is made from the bones, feet and heads of organic chickens. A splash of Bernie's apple cider vinegar helps draw minerals out of the bones. We simmer it at just the right temperature for 12-16 hours to draw out the nutrients without damaging them by overcooking, and to bring out a lovely flavor.

According to Sally Fallon, author of Nourishing Traditions, "[Bone broth] contains minerals in a form the body can absorb easily—not just calcium but also magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur and trace minerals. It contains the broken down material from cartilage and tendons--stuff like chondroitin sulphates and glucosamine, now sold as expensive supplements for arthritis and joint pain."

You can simply heat the broth with a little salt and pepper, tamari, fish sauce, coconut aminos, miso or any flavoring of your choice. Add it to soups and stews, cook your rice or any starches in it, or braise chicken parts and vegetables for dinner. Cook it down for an umami-rich demi-glace! TSH worker-owner Mud Hut loves making Egg Drop Soup, cooking the whites in the broth first with a little salt and pepper, then adding the yolk and turning the heat off after just a few seconds.

One ingenious way to incorporate broth into your life is to freeze it in ice cube trays, then store the cubes in a bag or container in the freezer. Heat a few anytime you want a cup of broth, add a few cubes when you cook rice or any starch, add to a soup or stew...you get the picture.

Ingredients: filtered water, roasted chicken carcasses*, feet* and heads*, apple cider vinegar* (*= organic)

Recipe is dairy-free and gluten-free and GAPS Diet-friendly.

Inspired by the traditional recipe for Fire Cider, our Friar's Cyder is a powerful, immune-building tonic.

Take a shot of Friar's Cyder straight as a tonic, add it to salad dressing, or stir it into warm tea or broth.

Grassfed Beef Bone Broth 22 oz.

$13.00
$1.50 Glass Deposit
Online ordering not available; Menu reopens Sunday mid-day

This flavorful gelatin-rich broth is made from Marin Sun Farms beef bones and browned meat, filtered water, and a splash of apple cider vinegar. Our beef broth is cooked for approximately 48 hours before being jarred, lidded and cooled. According to Dr. Thomas Cowan, "In healthy, traditional cultures, when an animal was slaughtered, all the parts were put to use, including the bones, to make mineral-rich broth. Our modern diet, having largely forgotten the use of broth as the basis of our cooking, is estimated to have less than half the mineral content of more traditional diets. This rich mineral content and the fact that soup broths greatly aid digestion are just two of the many reasons why everyone should make soup broth a part of their daily diet."

We do not recommend that you freeze the beef broth in these jars. Although the jars are meant to be freezer-safe, we have found that the beef broth can still crack the jar when frozen. You can transfer the broth to a different container to freeze it. We find that, unopened, the broth lasts for four weeks or more in the fridge.

Ingredients: Reverse-osmosis filtered water, grassfed beef bones and pan-seared beef,* apple cider vinegar*  (* = organic)
