Making Bone Broth!

  • Making Bone Broth!

    Posted by TowardsJoyAndFreedom on March 11, 2023 at 1:55 am

    I made some bone broth a couple of weeks ago because I was having some leaky gut symptoms. We did 1/2 cow share last year (this year we did 1/4) from a local rancher and they gave us 2 huge bags of organic, grass-fed beef bones last year. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™ I’m also eating a lot of kimchi for overall gut health as well.

    My husband encouraged me to make a video and share the process so I did. I think it’s been over a year since I posted anything on social media so I had to relearn bunch of things. ๐Ÿ˜

    ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธHas any of you had leaky gut symptoms and what are some of the things that worked for you?

    Also, let me know if you have any questions about this process/recipe. Enjoy!

    Bone broth should be good. I have IBS + many food allergies so I am following Dr Ken Berry with the Carnivore way of eating. So far, it has been very healing and easy on my gut. It fills me so much that cravings are almost totally gone. I eat 2 meals a day. I am Celiac, no dairy, no eggs + bunch more allergens, Hashimoto’s too. This seemed the best way to simplify + after about a year I will reintroduce foods back. No sugar EVER.

      Oh wow! Thanks for sharing. You must have a lot of discipline to eat so strictly. So glad the carnivore diet is working for you. I am trying to eat a lot cleaner, more whole foods. I don’t have many vices but I do like sugar. That seems to be my worst enemy. ๐Ÿ˜…

      I know Dr. Ken Berry will be at the Self Reliance Festival in TN in a few weeks. I’ve heard Nicole Sauce on LFTN talk about the carnivore diet. We are really wanting to attend. Going to TN from Portland, OR is a big investment for us. But, we might suck it up and go so we can meet people and learn. We are still considering since we actually want to move to TN this year. Have’t decided yet. ๐Ÿ˜

    We did a half cow from a local producer here last year as well. They know I’ll take all the bits they have difficulty selling so gave me two or three huge bags of bones as well. It’s good to be a good customer sometimes.

      I completely agree! I just told them I’ll take as many bones as they can give and we were floored. We had a hard time making room in our freezer. ๐Ÿ˜† I have to make more bone broth soon. It’s wonderful problem to have.

      Plus, the beef is so much better when you get it from a local rancher, processed just days before you pick them up.

        Yes.. in this area things like the tongue and such aren’t valued, so I get those at a good price (and really like the tender meat). I just kept telling them when buying previously “I understand you need to sell the whole animal, I want to help”

    Well done TowardsJoy!!! Glad this helped you feel better….I love the video, love the cooker and I want to build one. Do you have plans that you can share?

    Thank you-

      Thank you so much! ๐Ÿ˜„

      My husband built the stove around my gamasote based on the rocket stove design. He didn’t have a plan; he just built it. He’s just really good at making things. I’ll ask him if he can answer your question. Have a wonderful weekend!

      Hi Angespag, Kevin here. Sorry I didn’t make any plans for this stove build. Nothing fancy just improvised based on materials at hand and previous rocket stoves I’ve played with. Also wanted stove to be easily transportable (hoping to do a crab boil on the coast someday). A few key components to this build in my opinion:

      – Inner “fire pan” is just a metal oil drain pan with air holes drilled around base.

      – “Chimney” is metal dryer duct. Connect to can by making “*” shaped cut, bend tabs out, slide duct over for friction fit.

      – Cauldron/Pot needs flange of some type to rest on trash can lid rim. (Hole cut to appropriate size). The Korean Gamasote is designed this way, but maybe a food service stainless steel pot would work. If excessive smoke leaks from under flange (gets in your eyes), try fiberglass rope gasket used for woodstove/fireplace insert doors.

      I think this concept has a lot of potential. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

      Towards Joy and Freedom!

        Hi Kevin,

        Thanks so much for following up! At

        first glance it doesnโ€™t look too complicated. Iโ€™m going to try and build one this summer. That would be great for crabs.

        Thank you for the inspiration!!!

        Best to you and yours.

    I also deal with leaky gut. Bone broth is usually my trued and true go-to as well. I have also done a flat-out fast (water only) for 1-3 days and then started adding one food at a time, starting with some steamed green foods (broccoli, then spinach, etc.)

    Praying you get relief and healing!

      Thank you so much! I didn’t realize how many people suffer from gastrointestinal issues. I so appreciate people like you who share different ways they were able to cure/elevate health issues.

      Thank you again and have a wonderful day! ๐Ÿ˜

    Probiotics with prebiotics are also needed, like a capsule

    Kefir and yogurt โ€” homemade is great

    Sauerkraut, kimchi, pickled carrots, red onions, anything that grows a culture the more variety the better

    Tubersโ€”the diff fibers and resistant starches from a variety of tubers are prebiotic

    Sourdough is great but prob not tolerated till u heal some.

    Cara Comini is great for simplifying the GAPS diet. Sheโ€™s written a cookbook or 2.
