Chicken Stock

Traditional, homemade chicken stock! (insert reference about “how
grandma used to make it”) Works wonderful as a base for your own soups
and stews, and doubles a great item to have around for those sudden
colds or bouts of sickness. This stock is the real deal, and isn’t
saturated with ungodly amounts of sodium and preservatives like the
store bought kind. Plus, we add a few marrow bones in the cooking
process to thicken it just a touch and supercharge it with the healthy
benefits of marrow!

Ingredients: Chicken bones, celery, onion, carrot, leek, garlic,
thyme, bay leaf, parsley, kosher salt (minimal), black peppercorn,
split-marrow bone (minimal)

Vegetarian (Y/N): No
Vegan (Y/N): No
Gluten Free (Y/N): Yes
Freezability: Great

Price: $9/quart

Bone Broth – Beef

Starting with bones from grass fed, grass finished cattle boiled down
for hours (and hours, and hours, and hours….. and hours), and finished
off with a mirepoix of onions, carrots, and herbs, Uncommon Stock bone
broth is a completely natural super food that also tastes great.

Bone broth is a source of minerals, like calcium, phosphorus,
magnesium, and potassium, in forms that your body can easily absorb.
It’s also rich in glycine and proline, amino acids not found in
significant amounts in muscle meat (the vast majority of the meat we
consume). It also contains chondroitin sulphates and glucosamine, the
compounds sold as supplements to reduce inflammation, arthritis, and
joint pain. Finally, “soup bones” include collagen, a protein found in
connective tissue of vertebrate animals, which is abundant in bone,
marrow, cartilage, tendons, and ligaments. The breakdown of collagen
in bone broths is what produces gelatin.

Broth can be sipped straight as a healthy “tea”, or used in a variety
of recipes to add flavor and health benefits. Don’t know about bone
broth? Google it, and see why athletes, paleo disciples, people with a
wide range of ailments including colitis, Crohns, and celiac disease,
and those who are simply interested in being healthy are seeking it
out.

Ingredients: Bones (grass fed, grass finished), water, cider vinegar,
onions, garlic, celery, carrot, bay leaf, thyme, parsley, black
peppercorn

Vegetarian (Y/N): No
Vegan (Y/N): No
Gluten Free (Y/N): Yes
Freezability: Very Good

Price: $16/quart
