Fresh Salsa

1/2 ice cream bucket of tomatoes
1/2 red onion
1 /2 white onion
3 bell peppers (red, yellow, orange)
4 jalapenos
1/2 bulb of garlic
2 limes, zest and juice
1/2 Tbsp salt
cilantro to taste

Chop all finely. Let sit together to let the flavors come together.


Bone Broth

6 quarts water
2 Tbsp raw, unfiltered apple cidar vinegar
2 pounds animal bones (chicken, turkey, beef, pork, fish, or other)
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
3 large carrots, coarsely chopped
10 stalks celery, coarsely chopped
1 red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
1 green bell pepper, coarsely chopped
1 Tbsp Himalayan salt
1 Tbsp black peppercorns
Fresh or dried herbs or spices of your choice (optional)

Fill a stockpot with 6 quarts cold water.

Add the vinegar to the cold water.

Place the bones into the water-vinegar mixture and let sit for 30 minutes. Prep your vegetables while the bones are soaking

​Add the onion, carrots, celery, bell peppers, salt, peppercorns, and any other dried herbs or spices (if using).

Place over medium-high heat and heat the water until it nearly boils, then reduce the heat to low. Let the broth simmer for 4-8 hours for fish bones; 18-24 hours for poultry bones; or 24-48 hours for beef or pork bones.

When there are 30 minutes remaining to cook, add any fresh herbs (if using).

Remove from heat and let cool for 30 minutes. Then strain out the vegetables, bones, and fat.

Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or transfer to containers, ice cube trays, or muffin tins and store in the freezer for 3-4 months.

TIP: For more flavor, roast the bones on a baking sheet in a 300F oven for 30 minutes before making the broth.
