    can i buy bone broth instead of making it?

    It sounds tedious to make bone broth but seems to have so many benifits, i would like to try it. I have a trader joes about an hour away, does anyone know if they would sell a good one there. Or cant you buy such a thing?

    I don't think they sell it there.

    They'll sell a "beef stock" or a "chicken stock" probably, but it's not the same at all.

    It's so ridiculously easy to make though.

    Just invest $30-$50 in a decent quality slow cooker (one with a removable ceramic pot) and the $2-5 for the bones (I get 'em grass fed), cover the bones with water and let it cook for 24-72 hours. No more effort is necessary really.

    I just had a soup I made tonight with stock I defrosted, shiitakes roasted garlic broccoli rabe, and some herring fillets I added just for fun. Damn that was a tasty dinner.

    Try it out, it's very minimal hassle with a slow cooker.

    beautiful
    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!

    If finances are not a concern, I think USwellness meats sells premade frozen stock without any crap in it.

    Stock is actually not that annoying to make after the first few tries. Everything it annoying at first. Nothing tastes as great o me as homemade chicken stock. Totally worth the effort IMHO

    I'm thinking of making my own pemmican after having tried some of USwellnessmeat's version. $33 for 2lbs, I'm thinking I can beat them on pricing... but the experimentation is where it's going to get goofy.

    Are my housemates ready for me to make jerky, then powder it, then mix it with melted tallow???

    Who gives a crap.

    It's really, REALLY not. Seriously, it's easier than making your daily breakfast. Throw some bones/carcasses in a slow cooker, chuck in a pinch of salt and splash of ACV, cover with water, turn on. Go away for at least 24 hours. Come back. Strain contents of cooker through a big sieve, put in fridge. DONE.

    I frigging HATE cooking, but I can knock out a batch of bone broth every week without even thinking. Nothing I have ever bought in a store matches the taste of homemade broth. Nothing.
    I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.

    Learning to make stock is easy and important. Once you've made it right and used it, you'll realize that there is no substitute. Suck it up-you'll thanks us later.

    Hi,
    lost my last reply so I will try again, hopefully not a double post.

    thanks for the replies, the recipe I saw required cooking on stove top and periodically skimming the fat off the top. I do have a slow cooker with removable pot and can totally handle that!

    Is skimming the fat necessary?

    Also, where do you get the bones. The grocery store butcher would not have grass fed bones. The farmer I know, whom I am going to order a 1/4 beef from, sends his cow to a processor once a year, so he won't have any around. so WHERE do I find some bones!!! ??
