  • How many times can you use bones when making bone broth?

    I've been saving all my bones from my shoulder roasts and I've just made a batch of bone broth from them. Can I store that bone broth and make another batch with the same bones at a later point?

    Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

    I've heard: Yes, you can, but the strength of taste etc weakens with each batch. Eventually they crumble from the acid in the vinegar (which is good, means your minerals are leaching into your broth)

      Use them till they're gone.

        Use them until they are:
        a) gone
        b) you are tired of making stock/broth!!!!

        Put into crockpot on low and reset a few times a day and it works wonders. Talk about a timesaver!

          Thanks for the tips. Can I rebrown them in the oven? Or I guess the question is should I rebrown them?

            I went two rounds with about 3 pounds of bones (first try). By the time the second batch was done, I was pretty sick and tired of smelling bone broth.

              Would the amount of vitamins, minerals and collagen also diminish with each batch?

                I think it's just the effect of cooking them for a long time, not the vinegar. From my experience, after 36+ hours on the stove the bones start crumbling, vinegar or no vinegar.

                  What can do you do with the crumbly bones? I just made some bone broth (3 days simmering bones in water with some diced vegies). I've strained it all to make soup and have a big plate of bone crumble left over; is making another batch the only suggestion?

                      I only ever use mine once, but I typically cook my broth for at least 10 hours, so most of the nutrients/gelatin leech out the first time.

                        I made chicken broth yesterday.
                        Basically 2 raw chicken carcasses.
                        Browned in oven for 20/30mins .
                        Chucked in pot with mineral water added veg I wanted . (Onion leek celery fennel ginger garlic rosemary thyme tarragon mint lemon peel, B pepper, salt & tbsp apple cider vinegar) . Brought to slight boil then down to minimum for 5-6 hours , smashed up the carcasses & veg in pot, lifted them out and pressed them hard so they went to mush.
                        Strained liquid ,

                        Used some yesterday , rest in fridge.

                        3 questions:
                        Is the above method okay?

                        My mum won't let me use her gas top on all night will only 6-8 hours be sufficient?

                        If I left the stock out on top in kitchen with no heat , at room temp from cooking all day , during night would it turn bad / off ? Does it need to be in the fridge ?

                          Ryan your broth method is perfect. I had NO idea you lived with your mum. You seem so very independant. And I think you are.

                            i leave mine on overnight but turn it off when i go out so i stagger cook it for a few days usually. i used to leave it covered on top of the wood fire till it boiled over once and nutted the smoke alarm off in the middle of the night. i leave mine out and dont bother about the fridge. i guess it depends how much you worry as it is only a few hours and also the temperature where you are leaving it out.
