So, I probably don't get enough calcium when not eating canned salmon from TJs. Most days I get ~30% rda if lucky, so I would like to incorporate egg shells. They are 95-97% calcium, and seems like a waste throwing them away. They also seem more... (more)
You can grind them in coffee grinder for fine powder. Or you might just eat your braised oxtail bones that you add to your stock pot. They go soft enough to eat. And tastes better than eggshell powder.
