Bone broth powder is the ideal solution for anyone travelling a lot and wanting an extra boost.
If you’re anything like me and you travel a lot you’ll know that how hard it is to stay healthy on the road.
Why would you want to make bone broth powder?
I have bone broth regularly for its many health benefits. Therefore, I don’t really want to miss out on bone broth when I’m travelling.
So far, I struggled to find a good way to take bone broth with me on longer trips.
Then I came up with bone broth powder (which is essentially bouillon).
It’s so handy and can be taken anywhere. It’s perfect for camping, hiking or just a quick cup of bone broth in the hotel. I can be added to soups and stews for extra flavour or just dissolve it in hot water for a quick-fix of broth.
How does it work?
To be able to make a powder the bone broth needs to be dehydrated.
The best way to accomplish this, is to boil the broth down until most of the water has evaporated. Before you do this, you need to measure the amount of broth in cups.
Then the remaining bone broth is cooled until it forms a gel.
The gel can then be placed unto parchment paper and dried in a dehydrator for up to a day.
The bone broth will become hard and brittle and can now be pulverized into powder.
The powder can now be divided into the amount of servings you measured before boiling the broth down – 1 serving can be added to one cup of water.
