Watch the Super Mineral Broth Recipe video

A number of years ago, I discovered Magic Mineral Broth in a cookbook titled The Longevity Kitchen by Rebecca Katz.  I love the idea of using actual vegetables in a broth to give my body the minerals it needs instead of turning to a bottle of vitamins and minerals.

My take on this broth is a bit different than the original recipe.  I like adding in ginger and turmeric.  And by all means—make this broth your own too by using the vegetables, herbs, and spices that you like best.  You can’t make a mistake!

And don’t worry about all the vegetables you use to make the broth.  They won’t go to waste.  I show you how to puree them to make a wonderful creamy soup.

A Word of Caution

I am not a medical doctor, so to be safe, be sure to check with your physician before taking Super Mineral Broth or any natural remedy.

If you get a cold or flu this fall or winter, Rose Hips Syrup and Elderberry Syrup will have you feeling better in no time! They’re two of my favorites to have on hand when we get the sniffles in our home.

Notes

Do not peel the fresh produce for your mineral broth. Many of the nutrients are found in the skin. You should scrub them well before cooking.
Do not discard the vegetables.  Remove the kombu, bay leaf, ginger, and turmeric from the pot. Process the remaining solids through a food mill to create a creamy mineral-rich soup.
Store your broth in the fridge for up to five days. For longer storage, you can freeze it for up to four months. Be sure to wait until the broth is fully cooled to store.
Feel free to change up any of the vegetables to use produce you have on hand or from your garden. The key to a mineral rich broth is making sure you have a wide variety of vegetables.

  1. Kombu is excellent to eat also. No need to remove it. It just tastes like a cooked green. With its natural msg, its yummmmmy.

    1. Hi Beth, Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment. That is a great question. I have never tried to pressure can this broth. And I must confess, I am not a pressure canning expert. I would check with the Ball Canning Book and see what they say about canning broth.

      BTW – Do you enjoy making traditional foods? If so, I have a playlist of some of my videos titled “Mastering the Basics of Traditional Nutrient Dense Foods Cooking”. It’s a series of 15 detailed videos that covers How to Make Bone Broth, Cultured Dairy, Ferments, Sourdough Starter (my foolproof stater), Sourdough Bread, Soaked and Sprouted Nuts and Beans, and How to Soak and Sprout Grains to Make your own Sprouted Flour at Home. You can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLkRuW3pBo2U3b4eu0QraZReKlGzA11h3y And please share the playlist with any other folks you think might be interested in learning about these types of things. I’m passionate about the book Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon (of the Weston A Price Foundation) and want to help as many people as I can learn how to make Traditional “Nutrient Dense” Foods.

      Please let me know if you have any questions. I’m so happy to help! And I’m SO glad you’re here!! Love, Mary

  2. good morning we found your channel by accident, thanks God. I am getting the ingredients to make your bone broth. you made a comment that the bones can be used several times. How is this done? Are the bones roasted each time or is the broth made in fast succession over several days? Sorry for this question but I am very new to this style of cooking. You are a great teacher. we have found other videos on this subject but I prefer your. Thank you for your time.
