Bone broth anyone?
« on: December 17, 2012, 07:31:42 AM »
I LOVE reading the food journals! One thing I've noticed is that no one mentions bone broth? Why not? I thought it was a Paleo miracle food? I make a pot every weekend and drink a mug a day. BTW...here's what I ate/will eat today:

Breakfast:
Mug of bone broth
Sausage/egg/mushroom/bell pepper fritatta

Lunch:
Cucumbers
Left over pork roast
Dilled carrots

Dinner
1/3lb ground beef patty
Sourkraut

Snacks
Coconut
2 mini tangerines
Small handful of macadamia nuts
Can of sardines
Avocado

I have a big stock pot and we have bone broth every day for my kids.
I do both beef and various whole fish.

Generally, I don't have enough bones to make bone broth :(  I've got a low calorific intake, live alone, eat a lot of fish, and eat away from home a lot, which means I rarely have enough bones.

(Sadly, when I do, I tend to forget about it and let it boil dry.  Which is a shame, as I like bone broth!)

I often make it over winter, but find it unappetising in summer. If I go into my butcher on the day they break down beef carcasses he gives me a big bagful for $3. I also make a big stockpot full of really thick chicken and vege soup every weekend in winter and freeze portions to take to work over the week.

I usually have a cup every other day. It seems like a super food to me. If I'm feeling run down or like I have a cold coming then a cup or two makes any symptoms disappear.

I eat bone broths, mostly made from beef marrow bones and fish bones and my dental health has improved since doing so. I also add some kosher gelatin now and then.

Fish bones and heads make excellent broth.

I make bone broth often and freeze it in 1 cup servings, so I can take out a serving at a time.  I cook just for me.

I save every bone I get.  Here is how I make my bone broth.  First roast the bone for 1 hr at 350 F.  Put bones and any scraping into a crock pot and cover with water.  Add 4 Tablespoons Braggs Vinegar.  Cook on low for 24 Hrs.   Add a couple of bay leaves, hand full of chopped carrots, hand full of onion and a hand full of celery.
Cook on low for another 24 hrs.  Add black pepper and salt to taste.  Strain and freeze.  I freeze the left over bones and stuff for next time.  I usually have a cup every other day and add the broth to the soups and stews
I make.

Are you saying you use the same bones more than once? I'd expect after 48 hours pretty much anything worth having would have yielded by then.
