From now on I will start my posts with the recipe. If you want any other info, please see below the recipe! Thank you everyone!
- optional veggies and spices
- Put your bones in the instant pot
- Put any optional veggies scraps
- Fill with enough water to cover the bones but do not pass the max fill line
- Pressure cook on high for 90 minutes
- Allow to naturally release and strain the broth
So first off, Jonny gave me an instant pot for Christmas!! Woot Woot! I know that I am WAY behind the trend but I really wasn’t sure how I felt about quick cooking. My thoughts were that the most nourishing meals aren’t rushed. I spent the year watching the instant pot trend, seeing how many people were still using them and looking into the nutritional aspects of cooking under pressure. I was impressed and excited to get my own.
There is a bit of a learning curve with pressure cooking but I like that it motivates me to think and cook in a new way. Sometimes we need something to spark a little inspiration in the kitchen.
The second thing I wanted to share is WHY I have decided to putting all my talking BELOW the recipe. I think most of us come to a recipe blog to see the recipe. Not someone’s whole life story. Despite being a blogger, I dislike going to a blog and having to scroll endlessly through their vacation stories and 20 angles of the same dish before getting to the recipe. I know why it is done of course. This makes the blog more attractive to advertisers and improves the search rankings. But maybe I don’t care much about that.
I started this blog as a way to save my favorite recipes so I can keep them forever. It’s like a modern family cookbook for me. A few years back I decided that I would love to make a living on this blog and it changed the way I ran it. I talked too much. I worried too much lol. And I posted some recipes I didn’t necessary LOVE but were great for search rankings and photographed well. I have since deleted those with the plan to perfect them or trash them forever. At some point I stopped posting at all. I didn’t love it anymore because it felt inauthentic and it didn’t represent the real me.
So my new years resolution is to come back on here as the REAL me. I will post only when I find something I truly want to keep. I will let you guys go right to the recipe. You shouldn’t have to fight through all the small talk. If I have nothing to say then I will just post the recipe. I want this space to be what I created it for in the meantime. I hope you all enjoy my little piece of the internet 🙂
P.S. I didn’t take that pic. I didn’t know when I made the stock that it was going to be so awesome so I didn’t set up my kitchen for a photoshoot in advance lol. But I want to save the recipe and recipes are ugly without a pic so I present you this beautiful stock photo representation of my broth.
