How to Take Your Bone Broth Camping

Summer is finally here and the weather is beautiful! Time to pack up the tent, fill your cooler, and set up your camp chair next to a toasty fire. Though there isn’t much better than a s’more while camping, you can still stay committed to your health while sleeping under the stars. We’re here to help with a guide on how to take your bone broth into the great outdoors.

Use It as an Ice Pack — and Then Drink It!

When you’re packing the cooler full of goodies for a weekend away, toss in a few pouches of Osso Good Bone Broth straight from the freezer. They’ll stay cold for hours in your cooler and help keep the temperature down for your drinks and other goodies. Once the bone broth thaws, just remember to keep the cooler lid on and the contents cold — our thawed broth can stay fresh for up to seven days if kept refrigerated, but we don’t recommend leaving it at room temperature for any length of time.

And on that note, why do we ship it to you frozen? When it comes to bone broth, fresh is best. Shelf-stable broths need to be heated to a high degree to kill off potentially harmful bacteria, but that also tends to destroy some of the beneficial proteins, making them harder to digest. Our broth is slow-simmered and frozen, removing the necessity of the high-heat boil. It’s gelatinous when cold, which lets you know that it’s full of nutrient-rich collagen and gives it that creamy feel — without any dairy! — when you heat it up to sip.

Replace Your Morning Coffee

After crawling out of your sleeping bag, the best way to wake up and start your day outside is with a steaming mug of bone broth. Osso Good Bone Broth is an excellent source of amino acids, minerals, and protein to boost your energy in a healthier, more sustainable way than caffeine and sugar. While your friends are lighting the morning fire, take one of the thawed pouches out of your cooler and empty those contents into a kettle or pot. Simmer the broth over the flames until warmed and dole it out into rustic enamel mugs — there’s no other way to enjoy a steamy morning beverage when you’re out in the woods, right? And because our broth is Whole30 Approved, gluten-free, certified Paleo, and made from organic, sustainable ingredients, it’ll fit right in with your eco- and health-conscious pals.

Fuel Your Outdoor Adventures

Not only does Osso Good Bone Broth taste great, but it does great things for your body, too. It’s high in an amino acid, glycine, that’s essential to maintaining energy, reducing muscle and joint inflammation, and preventing the loss of cartilage. And other minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, help refuel your body after a sweat session and improve cellular function. Whether you’re spending the day bagging summits, kayaking through rapids, or scaling rock faces, bone broth will help you refuel and recover so you can head back out for round two the next morning.

Cook a Fire-Roasted Dinner

Once you’re back at base camp for the night, you can use Osso Good Bone Broth to whip up a tasty dinner for your crew.

Green Chile Stew

2 tablespoons olive oil (Fill a travel-shampoo bottle!)

1 lb. lean ground turkey

3 cups chopped celery, carrots, onion, and peppers (Do this at home before you leave for minimal prep and clean up!)

4 potatoes

6 cups Osso Good Chicken Bone Broth

1 28 oz. can of diced tomatoes (Don’t forget the can opener!)

1 15 oz. can of cannellini beans

Canned or jarred diced green chiles to taste

Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven over indirect heat (use the grill grates on a fire ring) or a large pot over a burner flame. Cook chopped vegetable mix in the pan, stirring occasionally until softened. Meanwhile, dice the potatoes. Add the ground turkey to the vegetable mix, breaking up with a spoon, and cook until browned. Add in the remaining ingredients, cover, and simmer for 20–30 minutes until potatoes are cooked through. Serve with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
