It’s that time again — Real Food Wednesday! This week our theme is bone broth recipes.
What is bone broth? It’s any kind of broth made from the bones of animals. There’s chicken stock, duck stock, beef or veal stock, fish stock, and even shellfish stock.
Bone broth is chock full of minerals and extremely good for digestion and absorption of nutrients. It’s also very healing to the digestive tract. It’s also the traditional way to give food more flavor — instead of modern day MSG.
So this week, we’re sharing recipes and tips for making bone broth — OR recipes incorporating bone broth (soups, stews, sauces, chili, beans, rice, risotto, you name it!).
How to Share Your Recipes and Tips:
I had been going with Mr. Linky but that’s over. He’s a nice guy but I had to end it. The main reason is he doesn’t give link love. Doing it this way benefits all of you much more in that you’ll not only get traffic but you’ll also get links (at least this is what people tell me).
So from now on, here’s how we’ll be doing the Real Food Wednesday posts on Cheeseslave:
1. Post your recipe or tip on your blog and be sure to link back to this post.
2. Email me at annmarie at (@) realfoodmedia.com with the link (the URL to your specific post), your name, and the name of your blog.
3. Non-bloggers – post in the comments!
I’ll keep posting until Thursday at noon. So get your links to me via email before then!
Oh, and just a reminder — next week’s Real Food Wednesday will be hosted at Kelly the Kitchen Kop. The theme: Favorite Coconut Recipes.
Now on to the recipes!
I’m sharing two recipes this week.
The first is a recipe I made for the first time just the other day: How to Make Lobster Stock. I can’t wait to make shellfish risotto with it.
My second recipe is for plain old Homemade Chicken Stock. I make chicken stock about every two weeks. Not as fancy as lobster stock, perhaps, but it goes with just about everything!
