    Bone marrow recipes for cooking never work! Takes at least half an hour.

    Do you thaw them first? I just assumed they'd be cooked straight from frozen. But usually the insides are still very pink and raw by the time the buzzer goes off. Then I put them in a dish to complete the process. Do you thaw them in the fridge first?

    Wow.

    Yes, thaw things before you cook them.

    I put bones straight from the freezer into the crockpot and let them go for 24 hours. Also, things like shank steaks, let them defrost in the warm pot.
    Wheat is the new tobacco. Spread the word.

    Interesting...what do you do with the marrow after preparing the bones this way?

    I actually made a meal out of whole bones (granted they were chicken bones) last night. Satisfyingly primal. Other than that I'll puree it into gravy for meat. But I'm usually getting the marrow in conjunction with meat like w/ a shank steak. Plain, I might just put it on a salad.

    You want to let them thaw out and store them in water for a day or two, change the water a few times. You'll notice the water gets bloody, that's the blood from the bones leaching out. You can eat without soaking in water but I find that it tastes a bit better without the blood. Salt water helps to leach out the impurities so you can throw in a few pinches of salt.

    Big bones take a bit longer to cook. I find that about 20 to 25 minutes at 400F is best for most bones, perhaps a bit more if larger.

    Sounds good. I've seen the blood oozing out, but I like cooked blood so I think I'll leave it. When I cook grass-fed beef liver (yes, straight from frozen!) and the blood melts off and cooks into the oil in the pan, turning into a sort of a sweet-metallic brown mulm I pour it off and drink it at the end of eating the liver.

    College freshman? No. I'm 29, married. Looking to buy a house soon to reproduce responsibly.

    Responsibly? Ah, so you're doing all the health tests and going to be taking psych evals and physical conformation tests?
    Oh wait, that's mostly for dogs - but wouldn't it be awesome if it were for most people too? LoL
