The recipes we use to make our products originate in the Midwestern farming-family kitchens of my ancestors. And this tradition, love and history that we choose to carry forward is at the heart and soul of our company.
Bone broth is indeed a staple of many rural homes where the ethic is still to put every resource to good use—including the bones most modern cooks throw away. As marinara sauce is central to any Italian family legacy, so is bone broth to me, an Iowa girl with humble roots. The rich broth Mom used to make was born of frugality and practicality, not for the health benefits it has become known for today. The aroma of Mom’s made-from-scratch soup in our home is a memory I’ll never forget. Little did she know the nourishing broth made from honest and simple ingredients was the foundation of our family’s good health and the inspiration for the products of BRAISED Bone Broth Company.
My college studies focused on nutrition and I became interested in the long-held folk belief in the healing properties of the homemade bone broth I had known since youth. I began to use bone broth consistently as a lifestyle practice (and for focused cleansing) which worked wonders for my digestive health, immune system, inflammation, and overall sense of well-being. Since starting this regimen - 10 years ago now - I too have become known for my wholesome kitchen serving broth to my family, friends, and clients and continuing a tradition passed from generation to generation. Visit my home today and you are sure to be greeted by a batch of braised bones slowly simmering to savory perfection. And while I might have updated Mom's recipe a bit, the nostalgia is the same with each sip.
