A highly nutritious and flavourful elixir. Free range bones, simmered for 7 hours with vegetables, apple cider vinegar and organically grown herbs. Bone broth is a liquid containing brewed bones and connective tissues. Important nutrients, especially minerals are derived from these tissues. Bone broth is beneficial for the joints and digestive system. Simmering the bones in water with some vinegar helps release nutrients from the marrow within the bones, as well as break down other tissues into the water.
