  • Chicken Broth twice

    I'm making chicken bone broth in the pressure cooker. When its finished could I drain the stock, put the bones and veggies back in the pressure cooker, and water and hope to get another batch of good broth? Doing this on a day when the family is at work and I have the week off. One member dislikes the smell of the broth so I plan to get a bunch backed up in the freezer.

    It's a law of diminishing returns. Each successive batch will be weaker. What you could do is run a second batch, then mix it with the first to average out the strength of flavor and nutritive components. Beyond a second batch, I doubt there's much value left to extract.

      Thanks, that makes a lot of sense.

        When you do the second batch, add some apple cider vinegar. The vinegar helps leach all the minerals from the bones.

          I make sure I add Apple Cider Vinegar everytime I make broth. I just wondered if it was really worth the effort to try to get a second healthy batch of broth out of the once-cooked bones. It might work with beef bones. Would the depth of the color (chicken or beef) and if the broth gelled be a good indication?
