Easiest Broth Ever

Boiling a chicken carcass or some beef knuckles is an important thing to know how to do.  You can get a great quantity of delicious and nutritious broth to use while cooking rice, making a soup, or just to enjoy on its own.  You can learn more about doing it the proper way here at our video.

But sometimes I am out of fresh broth, or don't have time to deal with un-thawing frozen broth. Enter...the easiest broth ever.

This is so easy you can make it a couple times a day without any trouble.  The whole thing takes about 3 minutes!


  • 1 T Great Lakes unflavored beef gelatin 'collagen joint care' (find online or at some health food stores)
  • Water
  • A few dashes of ground black pepper
  • A few dashes of garlic powder
  • Two generous pinches rock sea salt, or several dashes of fine sea salt
  1. Set 12 oz. of water to boil
  2. When it's near to boiling, add 1 T cold or room temp. water to your mug
  3. Add the 1 T gelatin and mix immediately
  4. Add the pepper, salt and garlic
  5. Pour in the boiled water and stir

This is a nice, savory cup of broth with many health benefits:

  • The salt is good to boost to a healthy level of blood pressure and circulation in (common) cases of low adrenal function.  It can give you a little pick-me-up.
  • The gelatin powder has a good amount of protein (11 grams) needed to steady our blood sugar.
  • Gelatin also has many beneficial amino acids, including glycine, which is calming, and glutamine, which helps heal the gut lining.
  • Fluids:  we all need more, right?  Two cups a day gets you 24 more oz., giving you energy and flushing out waste.

I am currently experimenting to see if two mugs a day will help my lower bowel function.  Many people report healthier hair and nails as well.

Do you have any broth experiences to share?
