We have decided to start a blog to share our recipes and to also keep them in a place we can easily access them. We hope you enjoy them and the little tid bits of our lives that we throw in. Most recipes will be based on primal principles although a few non-primal baked goods may slip in :)

Beef Broth

While strolling through the aisles of Weiland's this morning, Angela spotted a bag of frozen beef bones in the freezer section.  Perfect day to make some beef broth!

No secret formula here...somewhere between 12-15 cups of water, 1 tsp salt and pepper, dash of thyme, beef bones, 3 large carrots, inner celery stocks, and 1 onion quartered...throw it in a pot and simmer for 2.5 hours.  Afterwards, let it cool, then place in the refrigerator overnight.  In the morning, I will scrape off the fat layer that forms, then pour the broth into ice cube trays.  1 tray has 16 cubes and it's 2 cups of broth exactly.  Makes it easy to portion out for recipes.

Dinner tonight was leftovers and I ended up chowing down the cooked carrots from the broth and nibbling on the cooked bone marrow.  Pretty good!
