I thought I would share some pictures with you. I took these during the broth making process today.

Making broth is an easy thing to do and so good for you and your family. It is not really time consuming. The stove (or crock pot) does all the work for you. You just throw everything in and wait for it to finish!
* I always use a good quality sea salt.
* I sometimes simmer just bones, an acid (any kind of vinegar, citrus juice...), salt and enough water to cover the bones by a couple of inches.
* Sometimes I add herbs that compliment the stock I'm making. Sage can be added to a turkey broth. Thyme or Oregano to chicken. Onions, Garlic, Celery, Carrots, Bell Peppers can all be added to flavor your broth, if you choose. How ever you want your base to taste is completely up to you.
* Isn't that easy?
Why don't you try your had at making broth and let me know how it turns out?
