      Bone broth recipe?

      Hi All—

      I thought it was on my "she's home" thread, but now I can't find it. Does anyone here have a good bone broth recipe?

      Many thanks—

      Why are you giving bone broth?

      Recommended by Vet as a way to supplement moving ahead. Not as an alternate to any of her current care, obviously (I hope obviously).

      LOL, when I fed Oban raw and went on a raw feeders FB they were all talking about bone broth. What was it, I wondered? Just basically the same thing I've been making for years and calling soup stock. I just use whatever is left from a chicken, turkey, ham or beef roast carcass; bones, skin, fat, meat, any leftover vegetables, even from our plates since it's going to have the heck cooked out of it which I figure will kill any germs we might have left on our carrots. Not a lot of onion. It's usually more bones than anything else. I clean out the cooking pan with boiling water, cover the whole shebang with water, bring to a boil and simmer for chicken about 6 hours, turkey maybe 12, beef and ham bone off and on for a couple of days as I don't leave it on when I leave the house. Chicken bones will soften to mush, turkey the small bones to mush, ham bone till it separates, beef takes a long time. If I got a good mix when I separate the bones and leftovers out from the broth and refrigerate the broth, the broth will gel. It doesn't always gel, it takes lots fo bones to make it gel. The fat rises to the top and sometimes I can lift a circle of it off without breaking it. The more fat there is the easier to get it off.

      Yeah, I have figured out that it's just an über version of what I do when I have boiled down chicken bones for her after making a soup. Nothing magical. I bought a crock pot for long cooking times. As I understand it you just cook a bunch of bones for a long time to extract the minerals and collagen, and then cool, chill, remove the fat. Kind of a concentrated version of Jewish chicken soup (without any added salt or spices).

      I recently saw these articles on bone broth, and both said you should add acetic acid--preferably raw apple cider vinegar--to it. The acid helps leech the minerals from the bones.

      Hope this helps.

      Another Lab owner who has been through TPLO suggested it. There are other things you can add, and when I make it again I may add a clove of garlic. But on the very small risk of blood issues w/ garlic while she's on NSAIDs, I opted not to. It's only been 7 hours, and it already smells quite something (not bad: just like a very dense stock).

      Just added some to her dinner (and the cat's), and she adored it.
