So Santa brought you an Instant Pot eh? Or maybe you picked yourself up one at a wicked good price on Black Friday? However you got your lucky little mitts on one, please, please, pretty please, do not let it sit in the box until Easter. It’s time to throw on your apron, tear that box open, and make your very first delicious miracle – Instant Pot Bone Broth.
You know you’re getting older, when you’re away with friends for the weekend, and in between the glasses of wine and cans of cider, you and your friends are also sipping on nourishing, warming mugs of bone broth.
My friend Tina is a wizard in the kitchen, and without any of us noticing had whipped up the biggest pot of broth that we were all eagerly digging into because it was so damn delicious. When we returned home, I begged her for the recipe, and she recited it to me from the top of her head, because that’s the kind of awesome cook she is.
Following her instructions, I made it a few times on the stove, but then thought I would see how bone broth in my Instant Pot would stand up against the slow-simmer-style of the pot.
I’m excited to say that it turned out AWESOME!
It’s so much faster, and just as delicious.
It used to take me 24 hours of simmering the bones on the stove, but now 120 minutes in the Instant Pot, and the bones produce an amazing, gel-tastic broth!
Bone broth has really gained popularity for being a superfood in recent years, but it has been consumed for centuries by our ancestors for health. It is rich in minerals, especially calcium.
One of the biggest concerns about giving up dairy because it can cause acne, is the worry about getting enough calcium. Simply drinking a mug of bone broth every day, or adding it to soups, stews, and sauces is an awesome way to get more calcium into your diet.
Bone broth is also super rich in gelatin, making it excellent for skin health. It is rich in collagen, and is vital for skin elasticity and tone, plus the continuous renewal of skin cells.
Consuming bone broth on the regular will also help your nails grow long and strong.
I could go on and on about the benefits of bone broth, but I really want you to jump in and start playing with your Instant Pot and make your first batch!
I’d love to hear how it goes for you! Let me know in the comments below.
