Superfood soup

Superfood Soup
(a.k.a. Poor Folks Soup — a cheap way to avoid doctor bills)

3-4 cups bone broth
1 huge sweet potato that only costs $1/lb
(or 3 lbs normal sweet potatoes))
1 lb pork or beef heart (optional)
Pastured lard or palm shortening
1/2 tsp salt
1-2 tsp turmeric
1-2 Tb fresh minced ginger
1-2 Tb fresh minced garlic
1/4 cup raw apple cider vinegar

Option 1
1/2 pkg or more of chopped frozen spinach (5 oz)

Option 2
1 1/2 cup coconut flakes

Bake sweet potato at 350° for 60-90 min. Brown heart in oil. Peel sweet potato with a fork and cut in chunks. (It doesn’t matter if the chunks are big, you can cut them up with a spoon after awhile.) Add remaining ingredients to pot, and some water depending on preference. Simmer 2 hours, until heart is tender and sweet potatoes are mushy. Cut or mash them with a spoon.

For option 1, stir in spinach about 10 minutes before serving.

For option 2, stir in coconut flakes 15-20 minutes before serving. Add water as needed, depending how thick you want the soup to be.

Stir in apple cider vinegar just before serving.

Alternative method: You could peel the raw sweet potato and cut it up, but raw sweet potatoes are really hard to cut.
