How to use Bone Broth.

Homemade broth can be used as the liquid in making soups, stews, gravies, sauces and reductions. It can also be used to sauté or roasting vegetables. Aim to consume 1-3 cups daily. Adding salt, herbs and a squeeze of lemon to drink straight, or with some butter or ghee is delicious
