Bone Soup? Sounds spooky and mysterious doesn't it? Well guess what? It is!
Although this is a Soup- this was also considered a healing potion many many years ago. Today it is still considered a healing meal in holistic medicine.

Pirates and Bone Soup -see pirates bone soup
Bone soup was eaten thick or drank thin by sea pirates. Life at Sea was difficult so "Pirate Bone Soup" was made from anything and everything from animal bones, fish bones to even bone and flesh from rats that were living aboard the ships when rations were low. In the Caribbean, they also caught turtle for fresh meat which was sometimes added to soups.

Bone Soup has always had a history of being healing and helpful to the body but in the case of Pirate Bone Soup, it was cooked with the idea to simply stay alive during long sea voyages.  Pirate Bone Soup may of carried alot of calcium value from all the stewing bones but there would of been a lot of unhealthy things in the soup as well. such as: diseased rats, close to rottening meat, maggots, weevils, etc.   -see pirates

Hard Tack or (better know as Sea Biscuits by sea goers), were eaten along side of stews & soups like Bone Soup. Sea Biscuits were usually dunked or floated on top so it could soak up the liquid of the soup.

Here's what you need

A pot full of any kind of bones will do (beef, chicken, pork
  - A miscellaneous mix would be great.

Add your favorite vegetables and potatoes. - You know...
   just cook up your favorite pot of soup     but make
   absolutely sure its packed full of bones.

Add your favorite herbs and spices. (this is where
   witche's and healers do their magic touch)

Most Important!!!  The magical ingredient is VINEGAR
You must add some vinegar to the pot of soup in order to
force the calcium in the bones to dissolve from the bones
into the soup juice.

Just 1 pint of soup can give you as much as 1,000 milligrams of calcium.  Wow!
Now let the bones stew for 4 hours or even longer.
Make sure all the meat has either fell off the bones or just starting to fall off the bone before you serve. Bones add tons of flavor to all recipes!

Witches, Healers and Potions
Now..... if you were a real practicing healer or witch.... you would say a spell or prayer with this potion most likely.  Also..... the types of herbs placed in this soup would all be a part of a healing potion.  Herbs are an important part of modern day witches that we know of today and herbs have extremely powerful healing powers. Spells and blessings placed upon the simmering cauldron would be part of a witches process and a ritual over the caldron of soup would possibly take place as well.  Being a great cook is not all there is to it.  Having said that.... it must also be said that not all people who have the knowledge of healing by cooking up potions or making salves; are all "witches".  If fact, many of them are NOT witches at all but have the gift of knowing what to do and when to do it, but because of this gift that most relate to being mysterious and dark- they are given the title "they must be a witch."

Chicory Juice - Natural Native Medicine
Chicory is a plant that has helped Native Americans heal bones that were damaged by osteoporosis (bone fractures) for many years.  It is now part of what we know as Alternative Medicine but was once known only as a old time potion from a medicine man, witch doctor or potion maker. 

"Potion for Calcium Deficiency"
Bone Soup has forever been cooked up in pots by the fire for many years.  Our ancestors already knew how important it was to have calcium and how to "put back in" any calcium caused by deficiencies that we had.  In the days of old- a bone collector would search out and get bags and bags of bones and bring them back to their cabin for cooking.  Word would be sent all over the mountain side that a potion was being cooked up.  All kinds of people would show up at the home of the local potion maker in order to get some of this potion that would put needed calcium back in a person.

What a site to see!  Can you imagine seeing a big caldron of bones cooking?  Wow!  This would of been an unusual site for us to see in this day and time for sure.  After all..... a pot full of bones simmering in a pot does not seem natural.  In fact it seems down right scary!  In fact I can just see a old woman in my mind right now with a huge spoon and knife lifting up the big bones and stirring the soup potion.

In this day and time, in order to make bone soup all you have to do is go to your local meat counter and ask for them.  You no longer have to go trampling out in the wilderness to bag some raw meat to do it. Just get the bones from the butcher!

Bone marrow
"Bone marrow can be found in almost any bone that holds cancellous tissue. In newborns, all such bones are filled exclusively with red marrow, but as the child ages it is mostly replaced by yellow, or fatty marrow. In adults, red marrow is mostly found in the marrow bones of the femur, the ribs, the vertebrae and pelvic bones.
