One of the most frequent questions that we get around here is "How do I heat up my bone broth?"
We've got you covered! This short blog is our recommended method for warming up FOND Bone Broth for maximum flavor! We suggest you always use a stovetop instead of a microwave.
If you do not have access to a stovetop and saucepan or pot (at the office for example), please transfer FOND to a microwave-safe mug. Our jar labels have gold foil on them (the price of beauty!) and are NOT microwave-safe.
Here's how to warm up your FOND Bone Broth:
- Start by shaking the glass jar, it is normal for spices to settle since we don't use any additives in our bone broth!
- Next, pour your desired amount into your pan! If you're new to broth, we recommend starting with 5oz and working your way up to 1/2 the jar or a full jar.
- Warm on medium heat until the bone broth starts to simmer (1 min and 30 seconds exactly on our gas stove, though your cook time may vary). A simmer is when small bubbles start appearing on the outside of the saucepan. There's no need to boil it! In fact, it'll be way to hot to drink!
- Turn off the heat and pour into your favorite mug.
Bonus points: add a pat of grass-fed butter or a tablespoon of MCT oil for a boost of healthy fat.
For maximum benefit, drink 5oz daily first thing in the morning after a glass of lemon water, but before you eat anything. Consider this your face-lift for the gut.
