Workshop #4: Holy Scrap! An Introduction to Stocks and Broths

As we approach the winter season, one of the most powerful foods for supporting health and wellbeing is a rich and warming broth. In the next Homestead Logan Square workshop, presenter Melea Alexander will address why broth is good for you, how to prepare it, where to source quality ingredients, and how to store it in large quantities. 

Mineral-rich and deeply nourishing, bone broth is a food which has been used traditionally by cultures world-wide as a first food for weaning children; during acute illness; for postpartum recovery; and as food for the elderly or those with chronic illness. Bone broth is known to promote good gut health, and is especially beneficial for those with allergies, food intolerances, and autoimmune conditions; it's a powerful food! 

For participants who are vegetarian or vegan, Melea will offer recipes and techniques for plant- and fungus-based broths & congees that will give you an immune boost to keep you strong, healthy, and well-nourished year-round, too.   

This workshop will take place at the Logan Share, the new Dill Pickle office space, at 2864 N Milwaukee from 6-8 pm on November 18th. For more information and to buy tickets, visit our Facebook page.
