Hey Kali, after a few days i turn the slow cooker off and then strain the bones and herbs etc then im left with a reletivily clear broth. i then fry up some onions, mushrooms, peppers etc and then just slowly add the broth untill its all in there...if im making a curry i would add the curry past with the fryed veges and then some coconut cream in at the very end once ive turned the heat down : ) with my soup i was cutting pumpkin into big bits and adding to my fryed onion with a bit of broth at a time. as the pumpkin cooked i would add more broth and untill its all gone and it makes a delicious thick and creamy brothy soup!! when im not so hungry i will just drink a cup of strained broth for dinner : )

HI Bridge, about those broths, after reading your post I made one with some lamb bones I saved in the freezer, one thing I hadn't known to do before wwas to add vinegar. After two days in the slow cooker it was black lol, I had put some onion, carrot and celery tops in there with it and it was quite unappetising to look at, I was relieved when I read in nourishing traditions that stock broths do look pretty gross loL . i made soup with it which was acceptable but How do you do yours up to serve?

To all the lovely Weston A Priceys...I have just created a discussion for when you:

 a)have something to trade or share, or b) are wanting to find out if there is any in your area.

Please use this instead of the main comment wall, as its easier to have all the trading in one place. THanks muchly : )

Enjoying delicious bone broths every week. they just taste soooo good! am using them for everything, soups, currys, by themselves. Put meat bones in the crock pot, cover with cold water, add some vinegar and seasoning and leave for up to 2-3 days.....have been eating alot of local goat too and its pretty good! Most of my bone broths are shoulder meat, neck and also marrow bones - marow bones are the best!!

Hi everyone...

I'm just beginning the Nourishing Traditions journey and am looking for a source of raw milk around the Bombay Hills area, preferably from the farm gate.


I found this great website, but the closest farm selling cow's milk is in Matamata...

Does any one have any other ideas? I'm possibly interested in starting or joining a milk club.

Both the milk and water kefir grains are doing their thing - wonderful stuff!!!


I have a  friend who has a child who has Cerebal Palsy, and she is trying to change the child onto a more natural diet.  All her efforts are being undone by the pressure being put on her by the hospital to feed her child a pre-made drink. 


Unfortunatly the child throws the concoction up, and loses weight quickly when on the muck the hospital is trying to force her to use, however when she eats real food (pureed till very smooth) she shows such incredible improvement!  It always surprises me how the 'experts' can get it so wrong...

OOh Lisa!!!


I would be most intersted in both milk and water kefir grains.  I've not tried caspian sea yogurt - is it very tangy?

If anyone has any milk kefir grains in South Auckland/Bombay type region I would love to do a swap or something





Comment by Tara McFarlane on March 2, 2011 at 7:22pm

lol - I just made liver for supper tonight - soaked it in lemon juice and water for a few hours, then 'floured' it with an equal combination of coconut flour and buckwheat flour, then added some herbs and gently fried it in coconut/olive/sesame oil.

Totally delish with fresh veg!!


My Teens love it!!  They also love my steak and kidney pie, and meatloaf made with ground steak and heart...
