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 pastured chickens from Burroughs Family Farms, which are fed organic, corn-free and soy-free feed, as well as a mix of organic and pastured bones from Mary's Chicken (Mary's pastured birds are fed conventional feed that is certified GMO-free), along with extra feet from Marin Sun Farms (which are pastured, not organic, with feed grown by Mennonite farmers in Northern California). 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, SunFed Meats, or True Grass Farms grassfed 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.

The trotters (feet) are the most gelatinous part of the hog, and so broth made from them is thick and nourishing. This broth is made from the fresh (unsmoked) trotters along with pastured pork bones of Marin Sun Farms pastured pigs. Pork broth is traditionally valued by nursing mothers for increasing milk flow, and has been reputed to prevent wrinkles because it is so rich in collagen! It also makes a delicious base for bean dishes, is great for cooking greens, and is perfect for Asian-style soups flavored with ginger and soy sauce.

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.

Inspired by Chicken Tikka Masala, our rich, dairy-free version uses coconut milk instead of cream. Onions, ginger, garlic, and an array of spices season a tomato-based curry sauce enriched with bone broth and finished with fresh lemon juice. Perfect for chicken, of course, or try it with fish or meat or just over rice.
