An intro to the world of Wishbone Bone Broth
Bone broth is a slow-cooked stock made of meat bones with some vegetables. It differs to traditional stock in terms of cooking time, ingredients including bones and the consequent benefits, as bone broth is a rich source of collagen and amino acids. Unlike stock, which is often used as the base of soups or stews, bone broth can also be drunk as is, out of a cup.
From Thai coconut chicken soup to middle eastern lamb stew and classic Greek chicken avgolemono soup, people around the world have been simmering animal bones into savoury goodness for thousands of years. Grandmothers around the world have passed this culinary tradition on to their grandchildren. However this latest surge in bone broth’s popularity emerged from a place not famous for its healthy traditions – the USA. Americans are finding their way back to healthy, whole foods again. Drinking bone broth is a tradition that is enjoying an immense resurgence in popularity. Chicken and beef bone broth are now staple foods among followers of the Paleo and Keto diets as they are low carb, high protein and full of essential nutrients and amino acids.
