    I do canned salmon too, usually for breakfast - it also has bones in it, so that makes it more nutiritionally complete. I have a salmon head simmering on the stove to make broth right now too. I am thinking it will make extra good bone broth - gelatin and omega 3s.

    You all are so much more adventurous eaters than I am! When Stabby was first talking gelatin, I thought they were eating Jello. I was thinking WTF? How is that healthy??

    My hubby would love me to get into organ meat. He is English and misses his steak and kidney pie and liver and onions. He also misses blood sausage. YIKES!!

    i'm flirting with the idea of using it to make a gravy to go with mashed potatoes, using that to thicken rather than flour but i don't know how that would go over

    This sounds great, I already love making coconut milk smoothies that are thick enough to eat with a spoon!

    Where do you guys get your gelatin? Have you found a grassfed option?

    Powdered gelatin sounds like a processed food. Enlighten me.

    We eat homemade bone broth every day, any reason to go beyond that?

    Heh I get knox gelatin in the little boxes either from Wal-Mart or Whole Foods (depending on which one has it in stock, for some reason they run out quickly)... buying in bulk online would be cheaper. I don't think organic/grass-fed matters too much though.

    So what kind of gelatin is safe to buy? Or do we need to make our own? If so, how do you make it?

    Gelatin powder is all safe. A "health food" store will likely have big bags in the baking section. The other ways to get gelatin that I know of are bone broth and chicken feet. Mmm.
