FULL SNOW MOON Feb 21/22 2016
The Full Moon is in Virgo, it is called a Full Snow Moon as usually this is the moon when the snow in the deepest.
It was also called the Hunger Moon by American Indians as it was a time when the hunting was the most difficult. The Cherokee called it Bone Moon as they found it was a time when the menu was chewing on bones or drinking bone marrow broth.
Who knew in 2016 with the Paleo diet, it would be the rage!!
The old song “dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones” actually got it wrong. They are quite moist and tasty and make an extremely tasty broth! Below is a simple recipe from Wellness Mama that may make you day a little warmer.
Bone Broth Ingredients
- 2 pounds (or more) of bones from a healthy source
- 2 chicken feet for extra gelatin (optional)
- 1 onion
- 2 carrots
- 2 stalks of celery
- 2 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
- Optional: 1 bunch of parsley, 1 tablespoon or more of sea salt, 1 teaspoon peppercorns, additional herbs or spices to taste. I also add 2 cloves of garlic for the last 30 minutes of cooking.
You’ll also need a large stock pot to cook the broth in and a strainer to remove the pieces when it is done.
Enjoy the Full Snow Moon!!!
