Trying my hand at cooking bone broth
They sell this at Tom Thumb for about $4
Funny - I never noticed it before!
And Tom Thumb is one of the most "swankified"
stores in Dallas - that is open late - that is!
Brown it up in the oven or a cast iron pan...
I use a cast iron dutch oven!
Grok- pot works, too!
A little water and some spices -
Add vinegar to help extract more minerals
from the bones... they say...
Boil the broth and a "scum" will form...
Kinda like foam. Scrape as much of that off -
As you can. It's just grit from when they cuts the bones.
Let it cook over night..24 hours is good -
The longer the better!
THIS recipe works for OxTail Stew as well!
But oxtail has more gelatin in it (cartilage)
If the fat bothers you, you can put the whole thing
in the fridge and when it cools, remove the fat!
[Why anyone would do that - is beyond me!]
I leave the marrow and fat and everything in there.
Saturated fat is not the "bad guy" we once thought it was.
In fact, we NEED it in our diets. Some everyday.
Saturated Fat is the preferred fuel the heart uses.
If we don't get it in our diets, our body will make its own.
Some people add onions and other veggies...
I like the dried spices for this... You can filter it out
if you like.. this is a metal mesh coffee filter...
Works about as good as anything.
Make sure you wash the coffee out, first!
But we knew that, right?
Let you know how it comes out!
