Good luck!!!

So my crock pot still evaporated quite a bit even with the tin foil. So I alternated it between low and "warm" a few times throughout the day and that seemed to help keep it slowly bubbling rather than a rapid boil. I have had trouble with stuff burning in my crock pot before and I guess now I know why - the "low" setting is quite HOT!!

Like the others said, it is very good for the gut and the minerals are better absorbed than from a supplement.

It is also so flavorful! I love it in mashed potatoes, rice, gravies, all kinds of things. It gives my kids a boost of nutrition and they don't even know it. They can be picky so I like to sneak things in while I can.

I use the crockpot-I always make my whole chicken in there. I sprinkle the chicken with garlic powder and paprika, cook it on low for 10 hours. Eat the chicken, pick the rest of the chicken off the bones, and add the skin and 5 cups of water. Cook the bones/skin on low (usually overnight) for 10 hours, and then drain the bones off and put it in the fridge. I do skim the fat, but only when I am going to use it-my boss (who is a big canning person) told me the fat is a natural seal.

I put mine in quart size freezer bags and lay them flat in the freezer.

I do the ice cube tray thing so I can add a cube or two to stuff. If I fill all my ice cube trays and still have some left I freeze in ziploc bags.

Default Re: Bone Broth 101

If I use a turkey or something I have surplus and freeze in wide mouth jars (no shoulders), but usually, I use it up so fast with the crock pot on warm for several days, I never store. Sometimes, I put a gigantic jar in the fridge and just add the broth to soups and things for the next 4-5 days.

I skim the tallow off the top after a short stint in the fridge (so much easier, and less broth gets wasted that way), but I generally have one nice cup unskimmed. With lots of salt.

The guy who butchers grass fed beef gives people free bones...I have a freezer FULL of beef bones from friends who don't know what to do with theirs or don't want them.

I have done the quart bag method of freezing. This time I'm trying using pint and quart canning jars. I left enough headspace for expansion. I don't skim the fat off. I do use a reusable coffee filter inside my canning funnel to filter out stuff. Way easier than cheesecloth.
