Most people say bone broth should be cooked for a maximum of 72 hours. I've been going 6 days now. each day i drain out the liquid and refill the crock pot with fresh spring water. Although most if not all the collagen is gone, i have a hunch... (more)
You can cook the bones till they dissolve and eat it all in an ideal world and it wouldn't be a problem - the minerals and nutrients in the bones would be beneficial. However, there is a problem due to pollution/ exposure of the animal to toxins... (more)
What's your favorite source online for grass fed broth bones? What kind of bone, from what kind of animal? There's 2 places in my area that has grass fed meat (frozen), and right next to it broth bones. However it's not clear that the bones are... (more)
I get bored with bone broth. So I was thinking of adapting David Chang's bacon dashi, substituting most of the bacon for trotters. Does the sub optimal nature of pork extend into it's connective tissue?
I am making a chicken bone broth for my "clear liquids" day before prep. There is usually quite a bit of fat in my broth which I think is filling and delicious. I also do the bulletproof coffee in the mornings. Now upon looking around the internet... (more)
Strain your broth and enjoy it freely! Broth should be no problem even though you can't actually see through it. Liquid fat will not hang around in the colon.
I cooked 2 pounds of beef (chuck cut in cubes) in 3 cups of water (20 minutes in pressure cooker). It's conventional beef so I let the liquid cool and remove the layer of fat on top. Is there any nutrition in the liquid, or is it just beef... (more)
Oh, the poor beef fat you tossed... wasted.
What do folks like to put in their bone broth to make soup? The latest thing that I've been putting in my soup is enoki mushrooms. I use them instead of noodles. Because they are long and skinny, they sort of fill the noodle void that I've... (more)
Ground beef or chopped leftover steak, kale (or some other leafy green), sauteed minced onion, ginger, peppers, sometimes mushrooms. Cheap, filling, healthy and very very tasty.
I have been following this recipe: http://undergroundwellness.com/how-to-make-beef-bone-broth/ which asks for cooking the broth 12-24 hours. I am not usually home for that period of time unless I include sleep time. I do not want to leave the... (more)
I am thinking about placing an order with a local specialty meat shop. They have everything from local elk to African lion (a bit more exotic then I plan on trying). The bones of game birds/beasts tend to be pretty cheap. Would I be getting a... (more)
I cooked a pre-cooked spiral sliced ham on Monday. On Friday I took the bone that had been refrigerated along with meat and aspic,and boiled it for 8 hours.I let it cool and refrigerated it Friday night.Is it ok to make into soup and eat Sunday? (more)
I can see your reason for concern: cooked, then cooled, then cooked and cooled again - lots of opportunity during the cooling for contamination; however, given that your going to heat it again to make soup during which it'll likely get hot enough... (more)
So, recently I went Paleo after six years of being vegetarian. I made a roasted duck recently (It was like eating Heaven) and I boiled down the bones and excess skin into a lovely looking broth... For New Years I want to do a nine hour roast like... (more)
I think it would be FANTASTIC!!! Go forth brave warrior!
I don't have a slow cooker,crock pot or the time to baby-sit boiling water. Is it possible to use my coffee maker to make bone broth? It can stay in "warm" mode unroll I unplug or hit the switch.
I always use the fat that I get from making broth for cooking, but recently, I realized that fats oxidize, not only from exposure high heat, but also from extended cooking time. I noticed that when I added some left over shrimp heads and shells... (more)
Gelatin is very sticky and feels much like a glue when dried between the fingers. Could eating enough of this cause constipation? Could I add something to the broth to make it less likely to act like a glue?
I usually make my bone broth from grassfed bones from Whole Foods. Last time they didnt have any grassfed bones, so I just picked up normal ones, also from WFs. When I use the grassfed bones, I keep the layer of fat that forms on top. Sometimes... (more)
I am going to start making bone broth because I am having gut issues. Where the hell do I buy good bones? Can I just ask the guy in whole foods for some bones? Will he look at me like I am insane? Thanks, Bronson
Hey everyone! I'm interested in doing a bone broth fast and had a few questions. First how long is ideal for a fast? Second, I have a butcher near by but the meat isn't organic. They do sell bones for $5 for like 25 lbs. I have a whole foods about... (more)
Abel and Cole now sell beef bones and chicken carcasses for a few pounds. I usually get mine from the farmer's market - if I call ahead they will bring me anything from chicken carcasses to pigs trotters, and usually it's either free or something... (more)
I bought some bones with the marrow in the middle from my local butcher. I asked for joint or soup bones but he didn't have any. Do you think if I boil these down to a bone broth it will help my 9 year old German Shepherd who is just recently... (more)
I'm not really sure what caused it. I doubt it was gluten. I've been eating a lot of nuts recently, going to cut those out again. But I have a feeling it might be the N-acetylcysteine I started taking. I started breaking out soon after I started... (more)
I follow a paleo lifestyle and eat a large amount of organic butter. Recently I made a 3 day bone broth. I had 3 big bowls for dinner and woke up that night, after 3 hours, with a rapid heart beat, acidic taste repeating on me as well as an urgent... (more)
My take on a juice fast (I hate cleaning my juicer.) Only consuming strained bone broth for 7 days. Been adding beets and carrots to the broth to give it a bit of carb kick. Usually add a tablespoon or two of lard or CO. Any tips for my bone... (more)
I have kept bone broth in my fridge for over 2 weeks as long as a layer of solid fat is at the top and intact. Never had it go 'off' yet, but as someone said there are various influencing factors.
Are you going to be getting the same benefits of bone broths if you substitute it with powdered gelatin? Do you get benefits from one that the other doesn't give you? Also, if you do take it or recommend taking it, are you able to mix powdered... (more)
Well.. kind of the whole point is to eat whole real food and bone broth falls into that category. You're taking all those nice bones that you picked out, roasting them, putting into a pot with vegetables and herbs et al. You're making it, so you... (more)
