Bone broth soup and health
A bone broth soup not only tastes delicious, but is also rich in minerals and nutrients. Known as grandma's remedy, bone broth soup from chicken is said to reduce the activity of white blood cells, which can reduce cold symptoms. Today we will tell you a great recipe to cook a rich bone broth soup from the chicken itself.
First of all, you need high-quality ingredients. Ask for chicken carcasses at the butcher's shop of your choice, at the farmers' market or in the organic food store. It is important that the animals have been raised without antibiotics. Chicken bones from organic farming are best, since the soup should be as natural and nutritious as possible.
We boil our JARMINO Bone Broth for 20 hours to extract as many of the valuable nutrients as possible from the bones and bind them in the bone broth soup, such as collagen, amino acids (including glycine, proline, hydroxyproline, glutamine, lysine) and glycosaminoglycans. At home, it is not really possible to cook a bone soup for 20 hours, but after 8 to 10 hours you can achieve a very rich bone broth soup.
The recipes for the bone broth soup are for a quantity of 5 liters of bone soup. If you don't consume the stock within 4 days (you can keep the bone-in soup in the refrigerator for that long), we recommend freezing the soup in portions.
