The New Hot Product - Bone Broth

Earlier this year, foodies started raving about bone broth. Many of us are familiar with broth itself. It is a basic starter for soups, sauces and braising meats and vegetables. This year took a turn when articles talking about bone broth went from cookbook to super food. Bone broth is simple. You take bones from meat, toss them into water, add herbs if you like and cook for 24-72 hours. After straining, you are left with a broth that has been infused with the flavor of the bones (and any residual meat left on the bone), and the therapeutic properties of what was extracted during the cooking process. "For as long as humans have been cooking food over fire, bone broth—the simmering stock of b

Canning 101

I remember helping my grandparents can every summer and fall after harvest. It was a tedious practice, but very rewarding. Canning is the process of preserving food with boiling water. When the jars are added to simmering water and then boiled, this removes any bacteria that may be inside the jars and in the food. This allows for balanced pH, which is essential in food preservation. The boiling water also tightens the lid on the jar, thus creating a vacuum-seal. Most canned goods will last 1-5 years. The Basics First things first, there are certain pieces of equipment you need. Jars of assorted sizes (jars are reusable) Lids (always use new lids) Rings/Bands (rings/bands are reusable) A larg

Fermented Foods

Fermented foods can be a healthy addition to any diet. Fermented foods have been around for thousands of years.

More specifically, fermenting was originally from the Middle East, where foods would spoil in the heat of the sun. Fermenting was very popular for centuries, but with the modern technologies of food preservation during the 20th century, it quickly became an ancient method. In more recent years, fermented foods have become a growing food category. Fermented foods such as kimchi, sauerkraut, soy sauce, and pickled vegetables can be purchased at every grocery store and mar
