    US Wellness products have never let me down as far as quality. And their customer service is also very good.

    They are expensive, imo, for a lot of things. Also, I never order from online vendors anymore if the product says, "approx X.X pounds" because in my experience, "approximately" generally means "way less," and "on average," means that I'm always going to get the one that's lower than the stated weight.

    Since I consider making bone broth and its gelatin a labor of love, that product isn't for me. However, if I needed the convenience of not making my own, I wouldn't hesitate to buy it from USW.

    Thanks, is it easy to make? Do you need a slow cooker? What is your favorite recipe? I would like to make a batch.

    it's very easy to make and you can simmer it on the stove or use a slow cooker. which ever method you try, do it for at least a day to leech out as many minerals and connective tissues as possible

    US wellness's ingredient list is pretty much the recipe. toss in a bunch of bones, a celery stalk, a carrot, a bay leaf and a splash of your choice of vinegar. simmer/slow cooker it, strain it & use it how you like

    if it doesn't gell up very much, cook it longer next time

    i just toss a bunch of bones, giblets, apple cider vinegar, salt, pepper, maybe a pig's foot in mine and let it simmer until the bones crumble, adding water as necessary

    Since I never know what I'm going to use it for, I don't season it until I use it. I also use a pressure cooker. So:

    -however many bones will fit into the colander portion of the pressure cooker (1-2 lbs depending on the bones)
    -filtered water to the MAX line (the cooker I use is eight quarts)
    -2 tablespoons ACV (but any acid will do, so lemon juice would work)

    Cook under pressure for an hour; depressurize; fill to MAX line.
    Repeat.
    Repeat. (So total time under pressure is three hours.)
    The last depressurization I let happen slowly rather than the quick way. Cool. Strain.

    That seems to be successful with four legged creatures. My results for chicken are all over the place.
