This is a presentation from the Wise Traditions 2013 Conference.

A South American proverb claims “Good broth will resurrect the dead.” While that’s a bit of an exaggeration, chicken soup has long enjoyed a reputation as “Jewish penicillin” and healing soups are served to convalescents around the world. In the 19th century gelatin (the chief constituent of broth) was even considered a superfood that could be cheaply manufactured to feed soldiers at war, disaster victims and the poor. Researchers from the late 19th and early 20th centuries proved its efficacy in healing allergies, asthma, osteoarthritis, IBS, Crohn’s and other inflammatory diseases and disorders. Today broth is widely used for gut healing as part of the GAPS diet and other protocols used to reverse autism. Modern scientists have investigated separate components of broth, including collagen, cartilage, hyaluronic acid, and the conditionally essential amino acids glycine, proline and glutamine. Research by the late John F. Prudden MD, DSci, on the effect of bovine tracheal cartilage on arthritis, autoimmune disorders, wound healing and cancer has been particularly impressive.

Potlucks in Review – Food Feature

For the last few potlucks there has been one food each time that stands out in my mind.

October: Duck Broth

At our potluck in October the favorite (agreed upon by just about everyone) was duck broth.  Mareev made it using a pot-full of duck legs covered with water, salt and vinegar and cooked low and slow.  It had a thick layer of wonderful rich duck fat on top and was quite delicious!


November: Beef Liver Paté

At our November potluck a big thanks goes to Jan and Rouanna for making a wonderful beef liver paté.  It was rich and buttery, and not at all a strong liver flavor.  We started out with it as an appetizer, had it again as a main course, and then went back for desert!

Rouanna provided us the recipe they used for:

Beef Liver Paté Recipe:

  • 500g (1lb 2oz) beef liver (or lamb), cut into pieces
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup butter or cream cheese
  • salt

Directions:

  • Saute the liver and onions in a couple of tablespoons of the butter until the livers are browned and the onions are tender.
  • Add wine, garlic, mustard, herbs and lemon juice and cook uncovered until most of the liquid has gone.
  • Cool and blend to a smooth paste in the food processor along with the rest of the butter (This is easier if the butter is not fridge cold!).
  • Add salt to taste.
  • Check the consistency of the pate.  If it seems dry and crumbly rather than smooth and creamy, add more butter.
  • Put pate in a shallow dish and press the cracked pepper onto the top of it.

Notes: Rouanna recommends instead of cooking the liver separately, saute the onions, then put everything into the pot and cook until the wine is reduced by half. This is long enough to cook everything.  Stir often.


December: Button Cookies

In December Haley brought delicious cookies.  They were gluten-free based on coconut flour.  She was nice enough to send us the link to the recipe she used.

Sept 21st: Broth-based Soups and Stews

“The Beauty of Broth: Broth-Based Soups and Stews”
by Jessica Prentice

A Presentation from Wise Traditions 2011, 12th Annual Conference
Friday, September 21st, 2012
DVD begins at 6:30 PM
Please come early.

Location:
Market of Choice
67 West 29th, Eugene
Upstairs in the Community Room

About the presentation:

Learn the essentials for making mineral-rich broths and delicious broth-based soups and stews.

Home-scale, commercial-scale, and community-scale approaches will be covered, including sourcing, techniques, equipment, and basic recipes–as well as photos and first-hand experiences from Three Stone Hearth Community Supported Kitchen in Berkeley.

Local reviewer’s notes:

Folks ask Jessica: “Should I take a chicken and roast it and eat the meat and then put the bones in a pot and cover it with water and cook it?… or should I take a whole chicken and put it in the pot and cover it with water and then pull off the meat?…  or should I take a brisket and sear it and then…?”

Jessica’s answer: “YES! Every which way is good!”

Though the basic process is simple, there are many different strategies to get minerals (and flavor and gelatin) out of the bones and into the meal. Come learn some of these tips and tricks.

About Jessica Prentice:

Jessica Prentice is a professional chef, author, local foods activist, and social entrepreneur. Her first book, Full Moon Feast: Food and the Hunger for Connection, was released by Chelsea Green Publishing in 2006.

Prentice is a co-creator of the Local Foods Wheel, and coined the word “locavore.”
