Pears are high in vitamin C, vitamin K, potassium, and iron, making them a very nutritious food great for eating as they are, dehydrating, or incorporating into various recipes. In our recipe, we used a crockpot for cooking this flavorful pearsauce perfect for the fall season.
When you see how easy this recipe is, you will never want to buy yogurt again. Full of beneficial bacteria, and easier to digest, yogurt is a staple food in much of the world. Considered a fermented food, yogurt is a great way to improve your digestion.
This is literally the very first dish Hillary cooked for Ryan way back in the day. It's cheap to make, quick, and packed full of garlic, which is a favorite in the Sthealthy garden and kitchen. It adds a flair of Mediterranean flavor with pepperoncini peppers, extra virgin olive oil, garlic, and parmesan.
In our household, we call bone broth "liquid gold". It's a wonderful way to get healthy and healing compounds into the gut to help restore and heal the lining. You can make your bone broth out of the following bone types:
- Beef bones (or we call ox tail) preferably from grass fed cows.
- Wild game of any kind, if you are so lucky to get them out of the backcountry!
- Poultry, chicken or turkey - use the neck, skin, and all bones.
- Seafood, heads, tails, and bones of fish, fish heads.
To make your broth, place the bones of choice in a 6-7 quart slow cooker/crock pot. Cover completely with COLD water and then 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar. (this helps bones release collagen- very important step!)
For more flavor, add vegetable such as onions, carrots, celery, garlic, greens, garlic, herbs.
Cook overnight or 8 hours, and then strain out all solids, pouring the "liquid gold" into glass jars, or ziploc containers for the freezer. Once it is totally cool, skim off the fat and then store immediately in 2 to 4 cup portions.
Use for all soup bases, or eat alone. This is the best gut healing food around!
