There’s an ages old cure-all, prescribed by doctors and mothers alike when you’re feeling under the weather, Chicken Soup, and for good reason. Bone broths — beef, chicken, fish, lamb and others — are staples in the traditional diets of every culture and the basis of fine cuisine. In Bone Broth you’ll find all of the valuable amino acids, collagen, gelatin and trace minerals not found in store-bought stock and broth. In fact, there are dozens of different nutrients found within bone broth, many of which can’t be obtained easily from other commonly eaten foods.
By regularly drinking bone broth or using it in recipes, you can help promote healthy gut integrity while reducing permeability and inflammation. It’s also great cure for a number of other health concerns including protecting joints, boosting detoxification, and maintaining healthy skin.
Celeste Longacre will take students through the process of building and cooking a Bone Broth from locally sourced ingredients and then will show how to incorporate Bone Broth in a variety of recipes. Students will have the opportunity to sample all recipes so come hungry!
The instructor for this course, Celeste Longacre, is an accomplished gardener who has been growing most of her family’s vegetables for over 35 years. Celeste preserves the garden’s bounty by canning, freezing, drying, and fermenting it as well as storing her produce in a root cellar. She and her husband, Bob, live sustainably in a handmade octagonal home. During the cold winter months, their heat is provided by the firewood that Bob cuts. Much of their electricity is generated with an array of solar panels. Read more about Celeste here.
From Celeste “Bone broth soup is extremely good for us. I discovered over thirty years ago that if my husband, Bob, and I have two servings of my home made bone broth soup a week, we have no problems with our joints. If I forget, my knees really bother me. So we religiously eat and drink our soup.”
