A great way to not waste left over bones and other remaining tissues from stripping the meat off is to make a highly nutritious bone broth!

The bone marrow inside is packed full of nutrient's such as collagen, glucosamine, protein, vitamin C and B12.

Collagen is the building block to the majority of our tissues and is key for repair, recovery and rejuvenation in the health and strength of bones and skin particularly.

It is also rich in glucosamine, a compound that helps against osteoarthritis, relieves joint pain, and reduces inflammation in the joints.

Vitamin C as many already know, key for healing and skin health and tissue elasticity.

B12 is imperative as a building block fo4 your body to produce oxygen carrying red blood cells.

To extract this sustenance, the bones must be boiled for 6- 24hours, ensuring the water level remains topped up to avoid it boiling dry as this causes the kitchen to fill with smoke!

The bones etc.. can then be drained off leaving the nutritious broth to form a great base for a fulfilling soup.

Almost anything could be added, for me I decided to use it to form a chicken & veg soup by adding.
