Bone Broth

TIPS:

Bone broth can be frozen and used later instead of water to make grains, soups and stews. Keeps in the freezer for up to 6 months.

I like to cook the broth all day for one day then place in a cool spot (garage/bucket of ice/refrigerator) over night then cook it for another day.

Homemade French Fries

Yup! French Fries can be healthy if made with good oil, organic potatoes and good quality sea salt. Make extra and flash freeze them for another day...

Flash Freeze: When the fries are almost cooked completely. Freeze them by spreading them out on a baking sheet or tray, then packing them in airtight containers or freezer bags or wrapping with foil or plastic wrap for longer storage. Cook from frozen in a 400 F oven for 15 minutes or so, turning once half way through cooking.
