This time of year, broth is on my mind.
For two main reasons. One, the weather is very cold - we had a period of 48 hours where it did not go above 0 degrees. Two, speaking of cold, I have already had two colds this season. There is nothing like a cup of warm broth to give you the encouragement you need to fight off a cold, both inside your body and out.
There are a lot of different broths, stocks, bone broths, etc out there. I do enjoy making my very own stocks and broths. Sometimes I don't have the time before I need to make a meal. The very best broth I have come across that is like homemade is from Kettle & Fire.
I have had the chance to try several of their products and want to share with you today my thoughts on them as well as some ways you can save some $$$ on them.
Who is Kettle & Fire?
The start of Kettle & Fire starts like many other stories. One person can't find what they are looking for, so they make it themselves. Then they decide to make it for others and a business is born.
That is the basis for Kettle & Fire's story. The journey began when Justin was looking for bone broth for his brother Nick. Justin wanted the bone broth for Nick to help his in his recovery from an ACL tear. He could not find anything made the way he wanted or packaged the way he wanted. So he sourced the best ingredients including the best bones, found more environmentally friendly packaging, and the best recipes for making bone broth.
How is Bone Broth Made?
Low and slow is the way to go.
You see when you are cooking bones for the broth it's more than just about getting out the maximum flavor. You want to cook those bones until they begin to break down, releasing collagen. This is what gives the broth it's finger licking good flavor. And that stuff inside the bones is pretty good for us.
It takes 20-24 hours for this process to take place.
Kettle & Fire carefully have chosen the bones they use. Here is what they say about the bones they use -
This is why we only use knuckle, patella, femur, and feet bones in our broth. These have the highest concentrations of white and red stem-cell marrow, and higher levels of collagen—the nutrient that gives bone broth most of its amazing health benefits.Why Our Bone Broth - Kettle & Fire
Kettle & Fire is intentional about the bones. K&F want the most health benefits in their broth. You gotta love that they take the time to do that and produce a better product.
Kettle & Fire Bone Broth Reviews
Let me tell you about the Kettle & Fire products I have tried myself:
BKettle & Fire Beef Bone Broth - Now this is what I want to be sipping on when I am sick. Great, rich flavor. It actually tastes like beef, unlike some of the other broths I have had. One time I used the broth as a dip for a French Dip sandwich. I added some Worcestershire sauce because I just had to!
Kettle & Fire Chicken Bone Broth - Chicken broth has so many uses, so it's never hard to figure out what to do with it. Even more so with Kettle & Fire Chicken Bone Broth. It is the closet to homemade I have had in a chicken broth. Last time I used it was in the soup you see below.
Kettle & Fire Mushroom Chicken Bone Broth - This one is all about adding that umami flavor that is all the rage. The broth contains mushrooms in the form of Portabellas, and Lion’s Mane Mushroom powder. It's my wife's favorite Kettle & Fire product. She like the deep flavor and richness it adds to any meal. I am not the world's biggest mushroom fan by far, but I appreciate how they can be used to enrich the flavor of a broth, just don't ask me to eat the mushrooms by themselves 🙂
I also have to mention this broth makes a great basis for an amazing gravy.
Kettle & Fire Bone Creamy Tomato Soup Review
I have also had a chance to try Kettle & Fire Tomato Soup with Bone Broth
The soup contains: Chicken Bone Broth (Water, Organic Chicken Bones, Organic Celery, Organic Onions, Organic Carrots, Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, Organic Spices), Chicken Broth, Organic Tomato Paste, Organic Coconut Milk, Organic Honey, Contains Less Than 2% Of Organic Tapioca Starch, Organic Olive Oil, Organic Tomato Powder, Organic Spices, Organic Garlic Powder, Organic Onion Powder, Natural Flavor, Organic Guar Gum, Sea Salt. Contains Coconut.
The tomato soup is pretty rich itself. That bone broth gives it such a complex flavor, something you will never get out of the red can that is also know as a piece of artwork - you know what I am talking about.
It's the kind of soup you need for your grilled cheese sandwich. Or do what I did and use it as a tomato sauce. I added Sfoglini Saffron pasta to the soup. Covered and simmered away until the pasta was done. The starch the pasta released was a enough to thicken the soup into more of a sauce. Dried oregano on top was enough to complete this easy to make lunch made with super ingredients.
