Bone broth is a staple we use as a base for soups, stews, and purees. It is also quite handy to use to simmer vegetables, thin sauces, and in a pan to reheat meats. Of course, you can drink a warm cup of it just like tea or coffee as well!
In our small Ecuadorian village, a cow is butchered on Thursday and Sunday. The animal is prepared and presented in the outdoor, open-air market. Meaty bones, called carne con hueso, reside on the counter next to chuck roasts, ribs, and organ meats. In our area, most of the beef is raised in small, family owned pasture land. You see cows dotting the mountain slopes as you dive through the valleys. Cows mature on grasses and whatever other edible plants are mixed in with the landscape; their life is simple and their meat delicious!

The local culture here is utilitarian with their animals. There is a value in all parts of the animal and not much goes to waste. “Nose-to-tail eating” is not as foreign as a concept as it has become in places like the United States. Before moving to Ecuador, I had never been directly exposed to high-quality bone broth let alone the bones themselves. By now, I am well accustomed with meaty bones and marrow bones, the essential ingredients for our weekly broth, which are easily found in any meat market.
Incorporating broth into my regular diet was one of the first steps I took many years ago to maximize nutrient density. I’m talking about REAL broth, not the thinned down, MSG laced, watery stock stabilized and preserved with chemical additives that you get from a store. True bone broth is a nourishing elixir, my enjoyment of this traditional food was such a profound discovery that I began making my own brand and selling it locally for a while. My product was based on our Never Ending Pot of Bone Broth.
Making broth and handling bones isn’t a task for everyone and that is why I appreciate the good work going on over in the Kettle and Fire kitchens. Kettle and Fire is a high-quality, bone broth company that makes beef and chicken broth from 100% organic ingredients with NO chemical add-ins, preservatives, or flavoring agents. Our endorsement of their product rests on their integrity, quality standards, and honest appreciation for this heritage food. Kettle and Fire has a budding online presence that extends the availability of bone broth to many who lack local resources, time, or interest in making it themselves. With an order from Kettle and Fire, you know the product you receive will be just as good as one you make on your own stove top.
