Slow-Cooked Bone Broths & Sauces
Slow-cooked bone broths, made from pasture-raised and grassfed animals, rich in gelatin and collagen, are a cornerstone of traditional diets and have always been a staple on our menu. We use only the highest quality bones, reverse-osmosis filtered water and a splash of apple cider vinegar to increase mineral absorption. Broth-based sauces are also a traditional accompaniment to support digestion, not to mention enhance flavor!
This flavorful broth is made from the bones, feet and heads of organic chickens. A splash of Bernie's apple cider vinegar helps draw minerals out of the bones. We simmer it at just the right temperature for 12-16 hours to draw out the nutrients without damaging them by overcooking, and to bring out a lovely flavor.
According to Sally Fallon, author of Nourishing Traditions, "[Bone broth] contains minerals in a form the body can absorb easily—not just calcium but also magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur and trace minerals. It contains the broken down material from cartilage and tendons--stuff like chondroitin sulphates and glucosamine, now sold as expensive supplements for arthritis and joint pain."
You can simply heat the broth with a little salt and pepper, tamari, fish sauce, coconut aminos, miso or any flavoring of your choice. Add it to soups and stews, cook your rice or any starches in it, or braise chicken parts and vegetables for dinner. Cook it down for an umami-rich demi-glace! TSH worker-owner Mud Hut loves making Egg Drop Soup, cooking the whites in the broth first with a little salt and pepper, then adding the yolk and turning the heat off after just a few seconds.
One ingenious way to incorporate broth into your life is to freeze it in ice cube trays, then store the cubes in a bag or container in the freezer. Heat a few anytime you want a cup of broth, add a few cubes when you cook rice or any starch, add to a soup or stew...you get the picture.

This flavorful gelatin-rich broth is made from Marin Sun Farms beef bones and browned meat, filtered water, and a splash of apple cider vinegar. Our beef broth is cooked for approximately 48 hours before being jarred, lidded and cooled. According to Dr. Thomas Cowan, "In healthy, traditional cultures, when an animal was slaughtered, all the parts were put to use, including the bones, to make mineral-rich broth. Our modern diet, having largely forgotten the use of broth as the basis of our cooking, is estimated to have less than half the mineral content of more traditional diets. This rich mineral content and the fact that soup broths greatly aid digestion are just two of the many reasons why everyone should make soup broth a part of their daily diet."
We do not recommend that you freeze the beef broth in these jars. Although the jars are meant to be freezer-safe, we have found that the beef broth can still crack the jar when frozen. You can transfer the broth to a different container to freeze it. We find that, unopened, the broth lasts for four weeks or more in the fridge.

Shiitake mushrooms are a featured flavor in this complex infusion of roasted garlic and stimulating spices finished with a delicate floral note of chrysanthemums. The ingredients in this broth balance warming and cooling properties, stimulating and soothing, and provide a variety of health benefits. Chrysanthemum and shiitakes, for example, are known in Chinese medicine to be beneficial for the immune system and blood pressure, while black peppercorns and ginger support circulation and digestion. Heat and sip by itself, or use as a soup base with your favorite proteins, vegetables or noodles.
