    Ah, the trials of Primal living

    Buy organic beef stock bones from butcher.
    Roast bones. So far, so (very) good.

    Discover ribs are too long to fit in stock pot.
    No, they have not been rendered noticeably fragile by cooking. Evidently organically reared cattle are not osteoporotic.

    Interesting and prolonged workout ensues on the kitchen floor with beef ribs, a bread knife and a hammer.

    ***

    OK, the bones are in the pot, and I'm knackered. I also have a newfound appreciation for bone as tool-making material.

    Love it! If you shovel-gloved, you could have gone that bone-fixin' route.

    If you ended up not being able to break them you could always use them as cudgels to kill something that would fit in the pot.

    Now, why don't sellers give their pots bone-size ratings? "Large size, suitable for beef ribs. Medium, suitable for venison."

    You mean a cleaver, don't you?

    Love it! Made me laugh out loud - which is an achievement, given the cold snowy weather we've got here in the UK!
