Title: Bone Broth
Post by: Wheatless in Seattle on May 20, 2013, 11:10:15 AM
Here's the link to a bone broth recipe that I originally posted in Colon Health:
 
http://bodyecology.com/articles/bone-broth (http://bodyecology.com/articles/bone-broth)
 
Does anyone have other suggestions?  Jan in Key West mentioned browning the bones, first, which I have also done in the past.  I will say that adding the little bit of apple cider vinegar seemed to help bring out the gelatin more than just simmering.
 
As a side note, I have a 17 yr old calico cat with kidney disease.  I'm adding a bit of the bone broth (without onions) to her canned food/fresh meat meals, and she loves it...but not all the time.  I'm trying anything reasonable to keep her nourished.

Thanks Wheatless! I always made bone broth by throwing some soup bones in a pot with some veggies and simmering for the afternoon which always worked for me.....I now realize that real bone broth is an art, as well as a medicinal tonic!  Sooooo.....I'm on a bone broth mission!


My first batch I started in my old turkey roaster (because one of my children had commandeered mine over the winter) which died 6 hours before I hit the magic 48.  I did carefully strain it and put most in the freezer, keeping some out to drink.....which tasted great.


Today, I bought a 7 qt. slow cooker and on the way home, stopped at my neighboring Mennonite organic farm to talk to Nathan about acquiring more beef parts.....well, along with the soup bones, he had heart, kidney and  tongue.  I roasted everything in the oven for about 1 1/2 hrs. then cut the organ meats in smaller parts to freeze for future batches.  As a side note, I don't think I've ever held a beef tongue in my hand EVER! I covered all the roasted bones and organ meats with RO water, added 1/2 cup apple sider vinegar.....didn't add any veggies this time and will cook it for the full 48 hours. Apparently, it takes the full 48 hours for the bones, cartilage etc. to leach all their nutrients.  Also, if you aren't using pastured meat, it's best to avoid using the organ meats as they could be toxic.


One site I read (forget which one) a doctor used real bone broth as a cleanse for people with auto immune disorders. Here are a few sites that I managed to save......hope this helps!

The one thing about making bone broth is that I'm tired of the smell!
Title: Re: Bone Broth

Saving bones...


After having roasted chicken for example, do you collect all bones, with the little meat etc pieces left on? which seems not very hygienic lol,  or do you get rid of all meat first? wash them?



Title: Re: Bone Broth
Post by: Jan in Key West on May 21, 2013, 02:31:11 PM
On saving bones.....I think I would probably save the bones where utensils were used to cut the meat off the bones, and throw the bones away that had been chewed.....but that's just me. ;)  Save bones in the freezer till you have enough.....or find a pastured butcher and ask for a variety of bones.....he'll probably love you and practically give them away!


When I'm done with this new bone broth which I'm cooking much longer, I'm going to do chicken broth....bought a roasting chicken, along with chicken feet, chicken hearts, etc.......going to roast the chicken, then remove the meat and divide up in portions for other meals.....then use the carcass and parts for broth.....apparently with chicken, most of the nutrients are leached after 24 hours.


The one thing is that you really get tired of the smell.....even considered moving the cooker to the garage but then my car would smell like cooked meat!
Title: Re: Bone Broth
Post by: Jan in Key West on May 24, 2013, 04:43:18 AM
Bone broth is finished....froze most of it in ice cube trays (which I had to go buy) but it seemed the most efficient way to store and it's user friendly.  Whenever I made a soup stock in years past I would add some meat to the bones for additional flavor......when making bone broth, I used only the meat attached to the bone and it is not quite as flavorful.  However, I did slow cook for a full 75 hours so that all the nutrients would leach into the broth. 


I've been drinking 1/2 cup in the mornings and another 1/2 cup later in the day and the one thing that stands out is my energy level has increased twofold! I know bone tonic is used for detoxifying and I expected a few days of feeling 'blah'.....but that hasn't happened. My only question is....can one OD on bone tonic?
Title: Re: Bone Broth
Post by: Jan in Key West on May 25, 2013, 11:29:05 AM
I'm lowering the amount of broth to 1/4 cup.....otherwise, I don't have any appetite at all.  I've lost a few more pounds but am really energetic and feel great!  If anyone else is going to attempt this 74 hour broth.....I did skim off lots of the fat because, well because it was gross! I figure the nutrients are down in the broth anyway and that's what I'm after, more of a healthy concentrated tonic.  It was easy to do.....biggest concern was making sure my cooker was re-set periodically so it wouldn't automatically shut off.
Title: Re: Bone Broth
Post by: Jan in Key West on May 26, 2013, 05:06:54 PM
Re: bone broth con't......I hope I'm not sounding like a broken record, but this stuff is AMAZING! I've been drinking this for less than a week and have so much energy that today I removed everything from my garage and scrubbed the floor....and it's a 3 car garage! It's so clean, you could eat off it! I checked online and you can buy it for about $10 per 16 oz. bottle but it's so easy to make......just takes awhile. It's the best thing I've added to my diet, along with the coconut oil......and I highly recommend it.


Interesting thing.....I saved the bones for my neighbors dogs, at first they took them, then after a minute, they dropped them in my yard.....which means they must have known they didn't have any good stuff left in them and weren't interested.

I was reading Gary Taubes' book on Why we get fat and what to do about it (http://www.amazon.com/Why-We-Get-Fat-ebook/dp/B003WUYOQ6).   ( He's the same author of Good Calories Bad Calorie (http://www.amazon.com/Good-Calories-Bad-ebook/dp/B000UZNSC2)s ).   I started by going to the recommendations at the end of the book ( so I don't know the information leading up to the recommendations yet) but his recommendation is that we must have 2 cups of bone broth every day.
Title: Re: Bone Broth
Post by: Jan in Key West on May 27, 2013, 09:39:46 AM
Wow.....2 cups per day?  Then I need a bigger pot! I might up my amount after hearing this but doubt I would take quite that much. I would love to have the broth I made analyzed to see the nutritional content, but am not sure how to do that.

Just bought beef bones... so I'll be cooking up with you. 
Title: Re: Bone Broth
Post by: Jan in Key West on May 30, 2013, 05:49:24 AM
Rita, how's the bone broth coming?  This week I did a chicken carcass, along with chicken feet......chicken leaches it's nutrients in 24 hours, unlike beef which takes 72. 
Title: Re: Bone Broth
Post by: Rita on May 30, 2013, 06:22:50 AM
I did a 2 day boil on it and boiled it down pretty good.   Put little containers together last night.  There was still a lot of stuff on the bone, which I decided to give to the dog.   Did everything come off of your beef bone after 2 days?


So today I'll make a little soup out of it, as drinking plain bone broth isn't that exciting ( especially after seeing all the scum on top... which I removed... but still...   ).


I want to add tomato paste to it with some onions, a few chopped carrots and spices.  Hopefully the acidity from the tomato won't effect any of the nutrients.
Title: Re: Bone Broth
Post by: Loanne on May 30, 2013, 11:19:24 AM
OK, this bone broth is new to me...and not particularly appealing, I must add.  But if it's healthy, why not?  I see bones in the store that still have the marrow in them...is that what one would use?  Of course, I roast chickens, etc., but not up to eating the feet...UGH...
Title: Re: Bone Broth
Post by: Rita on May 30, 2013, 12:52:41 PM
That's what I used.


I was just reading this site:  http://primalbelle.com/how-to-make-the-best-bone-broth-in-a-cheap-old-pressure-cooker/ (http://primalbelle.com/how-to-make-the-best-bone-broth-in-a-cheap-old-pressure-cooker/)  , and she has pics on making broth in the pressure cooker.  Her broth came out like a gel ( click her site to see the pics and video of the gel) , which is not what mine did.   Maybe I should have boiled mine longer, as there was still a lot of stuff on the bone.   I like the pressure cooker idea, as that only took her 1 hour.   ( I kept wondering how much the broth was ultimately costing me, since the stove was going for 2 days ).


Also, I guess you shouldn't microwave to reheat, as it will destroy the nutrients.  ( She mentions that on her blog... but I don't know the validity of that ).

Title: Re: Bone Broth
Post by: Jan in Key West on May 31, 2013, 05:44:54 AM
A pressure cooker may be the answer.....but unfortunately I'm afraid to use one!  I cooked my bones for 75 hours and there must be nothing remaining nutritionally because my neighbors dog won't even chew on them. I used a large crockpot and left it on which was uncomfortable......I read somewhere that you can also make it in the oven but I'm unsure that would use less energy. I made enough to last two weeks, and I'm drinking it every day. I have so much energy! I think it's good for whatever ails you!
Title: Re: Bone Broth
Post by: Jan in Key West on May 31, 2013, 06:05:18 AM
Rita....I read the above link on pressure cooking bone broth....and while I'm a little afraid of using one (don't know why!).....most of what I've read says to use low heat over a longer period of time so am wondering if you get the same results using high heat.  Her end product looked like mine....gelatinous. Any science minds want to weigh in on this?
Title: Re: Bone Broth
Post by: Rita on May 31, 2013, 08:32:12 AM
I didn't have a gel, but I cooked for only 48 hours.
Title: Re: Bone Broth
Post by: Jan in Key West on June 02, 2013, 08:18:12 AM
I'm using my bone broth more as a medicinal tonic due to the high nutrient value, rather than as a base for cooking.....so I'm using it sparingly.  Yes, I did have some meat left clinging to the bones, but the bones were pretty worn out after simmering for 75 hours!


I met a woman at a graduation party over the week end.....she had adopted two children, one of which was severely malnourished.....it is now four years later and the doctors want to put the young boy on a  regimen of growth hormones to develop height and weight at a cost of $100,000. per inch!!! Yes, that's the cost!  She is currently reading WB and setting a date to take the family wheatfree and is also going to start making bone broth, especially for his diet. They already eat organic/no sugar etc. so I'm interested in hearing if this helps him.
Title: Re: Bone Broth
Post by: Jan in Key West on June 02, 2013, 08:33:13 AM
In fact we may be confusing bone broth with beef broth.....with the bone broth, one leaches all the nutrients out of the bone so it is a very concentrated source of nutrients.  I think one could probably live on it!
Title: Re: Bone Broth
Post by: Rita on June 02, 2013, 02:27:55 PM
So how is bone broth different than beef broth if you use a beef bone?
Title: Re: Bone Broth
Post by: Jan in Key West on June 03, 2013, 04:57:13 AM
So how is bone broth different than beef broth if you use a beef bone?


I think the difference is the time allowed to fully leach the bones/cartilage etc......beef broth could be made in a few hours, while bone broth takes much longer. If I can find them, I'll try to post a few links regarding the nutritive value.....apparently, it takes 72 hours of slow cooking to extract the bone morrow etc., making it nutritionally denser (that may not be good English!).

I had a conversation with a holistic nutritionist I met at a gathering yesterday, so I asked her some questions.   She said not to do the pressure cooker and that it's best if cooked on low heat.... so I'll probably do the crock pot next time.  She also said not to use the microwave as that will destroy the nutritional value of it.   She mentioned that microwaves were banned in an area in Russia due to health consequences.   I googled that this morning and found this:

I have always used my slow cooker for broth, beef or chicken. I think it is an awesome way to prepare, it can sit there on my counter for many, many hours, doing it's thing.


Every now and then, when I roast a whole chicken, all of the left over skin, bones and so forth gets put into the Crockpot along with some water and a day or two later, awesome broth.


I live with two cats who don't like leftovers, however, I have a daily visitor, a feral cat who was born in the neighborhood, and when I make broth, I always save all that good stuff for her to nibble on for several days, after I remove all of the dangerous bones. She's in "feline ecstasy".

OK, I'm ready to make some bone broth!  I'm convinced by all the posts that this is a good thing for me, so I bought a BIG crockpot.  I'm not home during the day and would not leave a stock pot simmering unless I"m there.  I have bones in the freezer from a roasting chicken from which I picked all the meat.  Do the bones have to be raw or cooked?  Or does it matter?  I read someone else who saved chicken bones already roasted and was wondering.

Title: Re: Bone Broth
Post by: Jan in Key West on July 02, 2013, 07:12:18 AM
Loanne.....I tend to make separate broths, one with chicken bones/feet and then another using raw beef bones. My supplier is a pastured producer and has been happy to supply me with knuckles, etc at a very reduced price and sometimes doesn't charge me at all. Last time, I asked if he could cut the larger bones and he readily complied. If you can find a small pastured supplier, they are usually happy to get rid of the stuff they normally throw away. I've also added organ meat as well. I'm going to add the Chinese herbs in Rita's article next time too, that is if I can find them!


Regarding the long cooking time using a crock pot.....yes that bothers me too, especially when you have to leave it unattended. I'm considering using the oven.....am not sure if that's a better alternative or not.  Anyone have any suggestions?
Title: Re: Bone Broth

Rita....I saw a post (on WBB) regarding the use of a pressure cooker when  making bone broth and remembered your prior post....do you remember the reasons why one shouldn't use a pressure cooker? While checking sites on the internet, there seems to be two definite schools of thought on PC vs. slow cooking. I'd love to be able to speed up the process if possible....but do not want to sacrifice the nutritional content. I did find some labs that will test for nutritional data....but they are prohibitively exspensive! p.s. I don't re-heat in microwave.

Rita....Yes, I'm confused regarding the use of a PC with bone broth....half what I read says yes, then the other half says 'no'.  My own thinking was that the high temperature in the PC might negate some of the nutrients, but since it's all contained, that may not be the case.  So far, I have not been able to find anyone who has had the final products tested for content.....but I'll keep looking. I did write Saally Fallon at WP and maybe w ill hear back.....

I've been messing around with my new dehydrator today.   Apparently you can make your own powdered bone broth.  This would be great for me, as I have such limited freezer space.   I found this article:

Title: Re: Bone Broth
Post by: Jan in Key West on January 13, 2014, 08:40:25 AM
Rita,
This site is a great find!  Since dehydrating uses very low heat, it would make since that the bone broth would retain all of it's nutritional value. Keep us posted on your progress......I was surprised that dehydrators are so expensive ($400 to $500 & higher)....and it looks like they take up a lot of counter space.
Title: Re: Bone Broth
Post by: Rita on January 13, 2014, 12:15:03 PM
I just got this dehydrator  http://www.amazon.com/Excalibur-3900B-Deluxe-Dehydrator-Black/dp/B004Z915M4   .  Apparently it costs about 6 cents / hour to run.   It's on Amazon for just $200 (although I think it's usually $300 ).   It has 9 trays, with each tray 15" x 15"

I don't think I'd keep it on my counter all the time as it does take up space.  I'd just pull it out on dehydration days

Yesterday I made a vegetable 'leather' that I can further grind to a powder.   In my Vitamix,  I blended celery, carrots, spinach, a yellow pepper and a red pepper.   I poured it over the flex sheet  ( which you can buy separate for liquids ).    It only took about 7 hours to dry on 135 F , and it's brittle.    I can now just add a little of that to a bone broth or sauce.   Dehydration locks in most nutrients, and I can keep it for years, if not decades.   

I just finished sprouting some pumpkin seeds, so they are drying in there right now.


Title: Re: Bone Broth
Post by: Rita on April 16, 2014, 07:42:29 AM
I guess it's best not to overdue it on the bone broth, as you can get too much calcium.   Apparently bone broth contains 1500 milligrams of calcium per liter.   One bowl will provide about 450 milligrams of calcium.   And you may be getting calcium from other sources such as leafy greens and dairy too.    The optimal intake (according to Perfect Health Diet (http://www.amazon.com/Perfect-Health-Diet-Regain-Weight/dp/145169914X) ) is 741 milligrams per day.   

Too much calcium in the diet is dangerous, which is why they don't recommend supplementing with calcium.  And,  calcium needs to be balanced with magnesium, which most people don't do.

Bone broth is still a very healthy thing to eat, but from what I'm reading it should be kept to one bowl per day.
Title: Re: Bone Broth
Post by: Jan in Key West on April 17, 2014, 05:17:59 AM
It's difficult to get accurate nutritional data on bone broth, most information seems to be supposition at this point. But the highest level of calcium I've found on various data sites is that one cup ranges between 90 and 110 mg.


My concerns with bone broth are 1).....are the bones from a strictly pastured and uncontaminated animal and 2.) the lead content (and other contaminants) of the water used to both feed the animal and cook the broth.

I'm resurrecting our bone broth thread for the newcomers....in my experience, it's an important component of this WOE.


On another note, my husband and I noticed that since January of 2013, we have not been sick except for the cold we caught after flying north for Thanksgiving last year.....and after three days of consuming bone broth, even that was short lived.

This is another one of those old time things we did in Germany when I was little.  My aunt made broth all the time, we didn't call it bone broth, but hers gelled and did have veggies in it.  So freaking good, I can still remember eating a cup of her beef broth, and just feeling the goodness of it hitting my body, energy is definitely better when indulging in it.


Good reminder, to get back to making broth.  When daughter was pregnant, I would get whole organic chicken, either roast or boil it for soup, take meat off bones, and then return the bones to the pot and add water and sea salt, and let them simmer all night and next day.  In large Le Creuset with tight lid, that is a must, so the broth doesn't evaporate!


She absolutely craved this, forget what she called it right now, but something like Heaven in a bowl.   :)


It's always easier during the colder seasons, but might make some to take to work in my thermos again.  Along with my next recipe to be posted, Fat Bombs .  :D
