Bone broth is a great food. It adds flavor to grains, sauces, and soups. If you keep it on hand, you can have an instant meal by dropping a couple of eggs into a hot pot full of broth. I recommend bone broth highly in the book Rebuild from Depression.
What is the exact mineral content of bone broth? A reader asked and I looked it up dutifully and created the video below (or go to You Tube — bone broth). I describe my hopeless search in the USDA nutrient database, the mineral content of bouillon, and why it is surely packed with minerals.
Since making the video a day or two ago, I do recall looking up the mineral content of “bones” back when I was researching the book. I will have to see if I still have that information.
For more information on broth, read Mom’s advice on making bone broth. Make broth out of a carcass of a whole chicken. Ask a butchers if he or she has extra soup bones available. You can also add vegetable scraps to the broth or you can simply make vegetable broth. Broth is a frugal way to add flavor and nutrients to your food which is why this post is part of Pennywise Platter.
