For someone recovering from an illness and trying to build back their strength and stamina, bone broth may be one of the top things on their list because of its many benefits. It boosts immunity, alleviates common cold, strengthens muscles, bones & teeth, promotes weight loss and replenishes the gut system. Cooking this nutritious and healthy food the right way, however, is very important so you get the real benefits.
Using a healthy and non-toxic pot helps preserves nutrients and keeps your bone broth non-toxic and healthy. Regular pots made from metals or ceramics leach while cooking and contaminate food, this calls for a 100% non-toxic alternative. MEC’s pure clay pots are the only all-natural pots that are inert and cook food in the healthiest way possible.
How to Make Bone Broth in MEC:
Here’s how to make bone broth in MEC’s pure clay pot in 4 easy steps:
- Bring bones to a boil — start on a low and increase to medium heat in 5 minutes, let it cook on medium till it comes to a boil.
- Add chopped vegetables & spices: carrots, celery, string beans, turmeric, ginger. Reduce heat slightly and let it cook on medium-low till done, for about 2.5 to 3 hours.
- Turn stove off, and let it cool down for 15 to 20 minutes.
- Spoon the remaining bones out and smash the vegetables. Stir and serve.
You can store the broth in a mason jar for 2-3 days in the refrigerator. If you like it more like a drink, then sift the broth through a colander and store it.
Unlike metal or ceramic pots which cook most of the delicate nutrients out because of their harsh heat, the broth in MEC is full of essential nutrients like iron, vitamins A & K, fatty acids, selenium, zinc, manganese etc. and is way more delicious! The people who have done this share their experience here:
Irene Walther: “I enjoy cooking with Miriam’s Earthen Cookware. First, it gently steams the food and does not overcook it. I especially like making bone broth. Even the poultry bones produce a gelatinous broth! In other cookware, the poultry bone broth is liquid and runny. Great is the time it takes, only 3 to 4 hours instead of 12 to 24! I recommend Miriam’s Earthen Cookware!”
Victoria Behar: “My family and I are so grateful we discovered Miriams Earthenware pots. We were looking for a way to cook bone broth and other slow cookery meals without the potentially harmful effects of lead and other chemicals in crock pots. Their cookware goes beyond my wildest expectations. Besides feeling confident about the safety and health benefits of cooking with clay cookware, the dishes are incredibly delicious and richer and the cooking time is greatly reduced. I love the recipes they have on their website and can’t wait for a cookbook. The customer service is also amazing!”
Jeff Romain: “I’m excited to let you know that I made a batch of chicken stock last night and it turned out beautifully! I brought the bones to a boil and then simmered on very low for four hours with celery, carrot, turmeric, ginger and apple cider vinegar. The house smelled wonderful. I’m looking forward to making another batch of it soon.”
Clearly, Miriam’s Earthen Cookware takes healthy cooking to the next level by using this 100% pure and natural raw material for making pots and pans. It is time we realize the true worth of this gift of nature, and switch to pure clay cookware for our family’s health.
