Ask a Question 

  1. I am really enjoying your Paleo grubs recipes, have tried quite a few and picked up lots of sensible, easy, nutritious tips. I grow most of my own herbs, veg and fruit and my busy little hens give me eggs and manure. In future all my bone broth will be done for 12 hours in my crockpot and I have always added cider vinegar to ‘leach’ the goodness out of the bones like my Mum did. Thanks for confirming that.

  2. I’ve been using home made organic, local, grass fed beef bone broth for about 10 days and it is making me very tired. When I stopped drinking it I felt better. Do you have any advice?

  3. I am wondering which method I should use. I have made my beef broth in the pressure cooker for 3 hours and then in the slow cooker for 18 hours. I would like to know which method releases the most goodness
