    short answer, yes

    long answer, yes

    beautiful
    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
    lol

      Of course! I have mine simmering away all the time. (Teenage son claims it makes the house smell like diharrea, so there's a bonus)

            I put the bones in the pot, cover with filtered water, add a couple TBS of Apple cider vinegar, then put on the lid turn the crock pot on low. Check it after 24 hours to be sure the water hasn't evaporated way down. On the second day a few hours before I'm ready to jar the broth, I add veggies, sea salt, herbs, sometimes a few chili flakes and continue cooking on low for awhile. Strain broth into mason jars and store in the fridge or freezer.

                Definitely. But keep in mind that some of the cheaper models (like mine) tend to run too hot.
                I have to alternate between the Low and Warm settings every hour or two, or it will just boil constantly.

                You are actually looking for more of a simmer, with little bubbles occasionally rising to the top, rather than a full rolling boil, which is more likely to oxidize the fats and overcook the meaty bits.

                I remember someone else mentioning this and suggesting lining the lid with aluminum foil so that you can use the Warm setting and still keep it simmering.

                  That's the only way I make my bone broth - so I can just leave it alone for 24 hours on low and not worry. And mine is a far from fancy model.
                  I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.

                    I use my crock pot on low. I wrap the lid in foil as low doesnt seem to get hot enough. I put about 2-3 pounds of bones in there and fill the rest with water and a few spoons of ACV. Let it go for 24-36 hours.

                    note: I'm still new at it and the first couple batches had some problems, but I was still able to get "bone-broth" out of it. I think it takes some experimenting.

                      I cooked my latest bone broth for 22 hours. It's rich, deep, dark and absolutely AMAZING!

                      Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

                        My last lot was lots of chicken wing bones, duck bones (from Chinese restaurant crispy duck!!) and two pigs trotters. Cooked low for 20 hours. It gelled while still tepid so I put the bones back in the slow cooker, added more water and cider vinegar and it has been cooking on low another 12 hours. Smells amazing! It is the 1st time I have ever tried for a second lot of stock from the same bones.

                          I just leave mine in a crock cooking constantly. Never ending broth. Throw in the beef bones and dip out some broth whenever I need it. Replenish with water when it gets low and do again till the bones are crumbled. The one I have on now has been cooking away for 4 days and refilled once.
