Waste Not - Want Not - Bones

October 4, 2019

Whether you are a paleontologist or a home chef, bones always present an intriguing dilemma.  Our ancestors discovered that making a simple but nourishing broth can help our health, slow aging and promote beauty. Sounds like a winner!  

STEP 1: Don't throw away the bones! Add that little bone from the chuck roast or a steak to a zip lock bag just for beef. Freeze your accumulation.  Make a bag for chicken bones too. 

STEP 2:   The best broth is a simple broth. From reading my stash of cook books, I discovered that you only need bones, water, apple cider vinegar (or citrus) and salt to taste. That's it!  

STEP 3: Preparing is a breeze.  With 5 lbs of bones and 5 quarts of water in a stock pot, add 2 tablespoons of vinegar. Bring the mix to a boil then reduce the mix to a simmer. Cook on the stove top 12-24 hours, in a slow cooker 24-48 hours or in a pressure cooker 1-3 hours.  Add your favorite salt to taste. 

FINAL STEP 4:  Let broth cool. Skim the fat if you wish.  Pour into quart jars with plastic lids and labels. Freeze them. There are recipes for canning the broth as well. Check your most recent Kerr or Ball Canning Book.
