    How many times can you use bones when making bone broth?

    I've been saving all my bones from my shoulder roasts and I've just made a batch of bone broth from them. Can I store that bone broth and make another batch with the same bones at a later point?

    Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

    I've heard: Yes, you can, but the strength of taste etc weakens with each batch. Eventually they crumble from the acid in the vinegar (which is good, means your minerals are leaching into your broth)

    Use them until they are:
    a) gone
    b) you are tired of making stock/broth!!!!

    Put into crockpot on low and reset a few times a day and it works wonders. Talk about a timesaver!

    Thanks for the tips. Can I rebrown them in the oven? Or I guess the question is should I rebrown them?

    I went two rounds with about 3 pounds of bones (first try). By the time the second batch was done, I was pretty sick and tired of smelling bone broth.

    Would the amount of vitamins, minerals and collagen also diminish with each batch?

    I think it's just the effect of cooking them for a long time, not the vinegar. From my experience, after 36+ hours on the stove the bones start crumbling, vinegar or no vinegar.

    What can do you do with the crumbly bones? I just made some bone broth (3 days simmering bones in water with some diced vegies). I've strained it all to make soup and have a big plate of bone crumble left over; is making another batch the only suggestion?
