  • Made my first batch of slow cooked bone broth..I have a few questions?

    Not sure if I used enough bones?
    The recipe I found was from Primal on a dime.
    It called for four grass fed beef bones, so I used 4 knuckles/marrow from my towns farmers market. (2 per package, 1/2 lb)
    The bones were rather small though, and I'm not sure if I was supposed to use larger bones? Any suggestions?
    It tastes quite flavorful, not too strong at all, like a light beefy flavor. Just wondering, is it supposed to taste stronger/*more gross*? LOL

    I come from a family that regularly made bone broth.

    Regardless of how many bones you start out, if you cover the bones with water and a bit, you'll make a good broth.
    Beef bones can be browned in the oven first, and this adds colour as well as a bit of flavour.
    If you ever make it and think it tastes too strong (I never do, and it sure isn't gross!) just add some water.

    Hope that helps.

      Ok great, thanks! Tomorrow I am going to pick up a few more and try a bit more.
      How often is is safe to be consumed? Any recommendations?

        I try to drink and cook with at least a cup a day, or more if I can. I use stocks in soups and sauces, in mashed vegetables, just about any way I can. It's perfectly safe, and very good for you.
