  • numnums broth with kombu and special effects
    We always have home made broth in the freezer. When a recipe calls for broth, we just unmold the frozen broth from the container directly into a saucepan and then thaw it over medium-low heat. Our recipe will often vary, and in the photos above, we mixed and matched recipe components to come up with 3 different formulas. It always involves our vegetable and herb trimmings that we store in a ziplock bag in the freezer, aka our "gnarly bag." It always involves chicken bones from the butcher, and sometimes frozen chicken carcasses that we've saved from Costco rotisserie chicken. We kick it off in the morning, then strain and store the broth at the end of the day. We have all hands on deck involving all of the large pots that we own. The special effects include the following: kombu (dried edible kelp) for glutamates (compounds that add umami/savoriness), pulverized shiitake mushrooms for glutamates, vinegar to help extract minerals out of the bones, veal or other marrow bones for gelatin that's great for the skin, and ginger to aid with digestion. kombuchicken bonesveal marrow bonescold watervinegaronionherbes de Provenceclovesbay leavessoy saucegingergnarly bagshiitake mushrooms
