Creamy Pork and Apple Cider Casserole
Get warm and cozy with this hearty, autumn inspired dish! The crisp apples and dry cider pair perfectly with our tender, slow cooked Boston Butt Roast. This flavorful dish also features our Pastured Chicken Broth, rich in Glycine; an amino acid found in nose-to-tail cooking--capable of dismantling glyphosate, a known toxin shown to accumulate in the body (namely from GMO corn and soy). Our nutritious broth is also rich in collagen and other vital nutrients to support bone and joint, skin and gut health!
