    yeah you are

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    Of course! I have mine simmering away all the time. (Teenage son claims it makes the house smell like diharrea, so there's a bonus)

    I put the bones in the pot, cover with filtered water, add a couple TBS of Apple cider vinegar, then put on the lid turn the crock pot on low. Check it after 24 hours to be sure the water hasn't evaporated way down. On the second day a few hours before I'm ready to jar the broth, I add veggies, sea salt, herbs, sometimes a few chili flakes and continue cooking on low for awhile. Strain broth into mason jars and store in the fridge or freezer.

    Definitely. But keep in mind that some of the cheaper models (like mine) tend to run too hot.
    I have to alternate between the Low and Warm settings every hour or two, or it will just boil constantly.

    You are actually looking for more of a simmer, with little bubbles occasionally rising to the top, rather than a full rolling boil, which is more likely to oxidize the fats and overcook the meaty bits.

    I remember someone else mentioning this and suggesting lining the lid with aluminum foil so that you can use the Warm setting and still keep it simmering.

    That's the only way I make my bone broth - so I can just leave it alone for 24 hours on low and not worry. And mine is a far from fancy model.
    I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.

    I use my crock pot on low. I wrap the lid in foil as low doesnt seem to get hot enough. I put about 2-3 pounds of bones in there and fill the rest with water and a few spoons of ACV. Let it go for 24-36 hours.

    note: I'm still new at it and the first couple batches had some problems, but I was still able to get "bone-broth" out of it. I think it takes some experimenting.
