  • Ah, the trials of Primal living

    Buy organic beef stock bones from butcher.
    Roast bones. So far, so (very) good.

    Discover ribs are too long to fit in stock pot.
    No, they have not been rendered noticeably fragile by cooking. Evidently organically reared cattle are not osteoporotic.

    Interesting and prolonged workout ensues on the kitchen floor with beef ribs, a bread knife and a hammer.

    ***

    OK, the bones are in the pot, and I'm knackered. I also have a newfound appreciation for bone as tool-making material.

    that's a riot! it takes pretty high temps to make them that brittle, actually.

    i hope the stock is excellent!

      Love it! If you shovel-gloved, you could have gone that bone-fixin' route.

            If you ended up not being able to break them you could always use them as cudgels to kill something that would fit in the pot.

                  Now, why don't sellers give their pots bone-size ratings? "Large size, suitable for beef ribs. Medium, suitable for venison."

                    Love it! Made me laugh out loud - which is an achievement, given the cold snowy weather we've got here in the UK!

                      Too funny!

                      And Breadsauce, please be not so silly with your cold weather. When you have to plug your car in so it will start when you are leaving work, then you can complain about the cold...lol :P

                        Excuse me, that's a great British tradition you're criticising! As soon as temperatures reach freezing and/or we have an inch of snow, we expect - nay, demand - headlines about Arctic Chaos. Then the councils run out of gritting salt, and then come the articles about how other countries manage perfectly well, and we get to complain about our national inadequacy at the same time as complaining about the weather. This is pretty much the peak of ecstasy, especially if we can do it while waiting in a queue.

                          brilliant!

                              Sorry, no. Should have been, of course.

                              Come to think of it, that stock's probably had more than its 24 hours by now. Time to strain it & boil it down a bit.
