You guys. These fries. They are both candy and potato chip addiction level. Maybe you’ve had parsnips before and you think, “nah, not my thing.” But then you have these parsnips, and you’re immediately, “these are crack, I need all the parsnips.” Because while a parsnip purée is lovely and all, this is hands down the best way to enjoy…
First, I want to apologize for not being as active with my recipe sharing as I’d like to be. I have friends begging me for recipes, and…well, with 5 month old and 5 year old little boys, it is harder than I thought to find the time to cook, photograph, write, edit, etc. etc. Luckily, Deven the man is in kindergarten and Baby Bodhi is sound asleep right now, and the inspiration has struck me…laundry be damned! So please stick with me, and stay on top of me to bring more cooking and health to you! I do serve up some pretty regular food inspiration on my Instagram page, (@caitlins_cupboard) so follow along there for ideas.
Now, onto my broth!
I’ve made chicken bone broth many times, but this right here folks is the real deal. Ameesh and I have had cuts of beef from a quarter-cow we went in on a while ago, and the very last thing in our freezer was a GIANT soup bone. Bones, actually. I made short ribs a few days ago and had those bones, too, and I wasn’t gonna let any of them go to waste. Why? Because bone broth has some amazing health benefits. And like all things healthy these days that get picked up by mainstreamers, it’s now being found in stores (yay!), but is really expensive (aww, man.) So, obviously making your own is the biggest win.
So what’s so great about homemade bone broth you ask?
This was one for the record books, folks. My parents and I went in on a Berkshire hog some time ago, and I had a handful of cuts of meat in my freezer I’ve never tried before. I didn’t know pork could be cut into steaks, but now I do, and so glad for it!
