Bone broth is basically an immune boosting stock packed with minerals which you get by boiling bones of healthy animals, poultry or fish for several hours. Boiling time assures that minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus transform to liquid nectar along with collagen. Now, boiling bones for several hours in tiny apartment that I had, turned out to be problem, but I managed to reduce time to 1,5 hours start to end using presser cooker. I use my mom’s recipe for this soup and I am proud to say it is delicious. Add matzo balls to it or some veggies and have yourself wonderful soup.
