    for chicken broth---i stockpile bones in the freezer and when I have 8-10 birds I submerge them in the largest pot I own...this is great way to make a big batch and it gels rather nicely with all the carcasses!

    Honestly, it took a little getting used to, but I now love it.
    It's interesting how your body decides to tell you something tastes good because its healthy.

    Yeah, I replaced a cup of coffee in the evening with a cup of bone broth.....good swap I'd say.

    I keep mine in the fridge for up to about a week. If a batch doesn't gel at all I figure I got most the goodies and I don't make another one with the same bones.

    I usually save the bones and chomp on them after one batch.

    Go Niners!

    I've only ever done one batch with the bones - but I never seem to have a shortage of broth or bones. I pour my broth into mason jars when I'm done. An unopenned mason jar with a good layer of fat on top has lasted me 2 weeks. Basically if it smells ok then I still use it - I may just boil it a little extra when I heat it up.

    Weird question that I didn't think need it's own thread (IOW, sorry for the highjack). But would be beneficial, harmful or neither to throw eggshells in the mix? I keep what I call my "garbage bag" in the freezer. I put bones and vegetable ends, rinds, skins, etc... in big ziplock. I pick stuff out to put in the crockpot for broth. Other day I thought, why not egg shells?
