I like to use bones from grass fed cows that have some meat on them. Ask him about the source of the dog bones, if they are from grass fed I don't see a problem. Woof.
I boil it once for a brown broth, then when all the flesh comes off the bone, I store it in the freezer for next use. For my next use, I boil the same bones and they turn the water milky white. How do I know when the bones are used up? Will... (more)

Hello all, I've got some q's on teh finer points of broths that I figured would be easily-answered here!! Top-layer: When my broths are done and cooled, I have a thick top-layer of fat (as expected). I recall hearing that this is to be removed? ... (more)
So, I'm somewhat incompetent at making broth; while it always gels over nicely, it's never clear. I think the root of the problem is the fact that I use a crock pot because I don't really want to run my gas stove for 12 hours or more. Although I... (more)
Perfectly healthy and probably better for you. Clear broth is intentionally cleared - often with whisked egg white and crushed egg shells which remove "impurities" (for which read nutrients). I like broth / stock as it is !!!
