Get a dog, he/she will love you for those bits. Otherwise slow cooking them is a winner, although I think I'd trim them first and use them raw in my stock/broth.

It is just as paleo as any of the other paleo things we modern humans eat. If you want to be a stickler, then only food you hunted and gathered is paleo, and then you most likely ate it raw, or possibly roasted over an open fire.
