Today I decided to take the leap and try to make bone broth. The last time I tried, many months ago, I didn't have a crock pot and the mixture ended up charred and stuck to the bottom of my pot, due to a faulty recipe. This time, armed with a crock pot and animal parts that many would see as not fit for human consumption, I had some success.
I started with two grass-fed beef soup bones.
My crock pot doesn't have fancy settings so I just put the lid on and set it to low. I ended up letting it cook for 21 hours, not sure about the ideal timing....
I had some frustrating fun trying to pour the cooled broth through my splatter shield thingy into my jars, need to invest in wire mesh rounded strainer.
Then I sifted through the solids, hunting for the beef I knew had been around those soup bones....
Look! No more marrow in there!
I'll be making bone broth again and again. I'll keep you updated on further adventures!
