Bone Broth

I have cooked at least 2 servings of bone broth and I can't for the life of me get the broth to congeal like jello. I buy my chickens at whole food straight from the butcher. I even tell them to cut them up and give me just the bones from the back. Makes me wonder who can I trust when buy meat. I don't know if going directly to a farm will be any better. This sucks. I'm assuming my broth is no good. It's just liquid.

did you

Hi Jeff,

It 'could' be the chicken, but we get ours from whole foods and have no problem (Rocky).

Did you:

1) Add in some amount of vinegar or wine? It helps to have something acidic to draw out the collagen and calcium

2) Simmer for a full 24 to 48 hours? The longer the better.

If you have no luck, switch to beef bones instead. And yes, it should congeal. That tells you that you got the 'good stuff' out of the bones and into the broth.

You can also start trying hydrolyzed collagen as well. The source that I use is below:

I would not use this completely as a substitute for bone broth, but in addition to it while you are starting out, especially if you are not getting much bone broth into your body. It would also be great for maintenance.

I SAVED ALL THE CHICKEN BONES FROM ORGANIC CHICKENS AND WHEN I HAD A LARGE AMOUNT STORED IN THE FREEZER I SLOWLY COOKED THEM FOR 12 HOURS. IT ALL TURNED TO GEL.

Not enough chicken bones dude!! Need to fill to within 1" of water level.

The best results are with natural or organic beef femur bones. These have lots of mass and tissue material(collagen and minerals)you need to heal.

Whole Foods can get natural beef bones and cut these into 3 inch sections and freeze in 5# plastic bags. These area about $3 a pound and you can get a case (33#) cut and bagged for this price. Get to know these butchers by name and when the bones are available. Call these guys ahead of time to order and prep the bones for you. Most of these bones are used in cosmetics and pet foods- go figure you're competing with women and pets.

Get large crock pots. I actually have 3. Fill these stacked close together as possible in orderly rows. Use bottled water. Cook for three days. Let slightly cool. Remove bones and filter out gragments and tissues chunks. Decant grease, let cool, than place in refrigerator overnight. Gel should form always.

Kerri is dead on about this recipe and its consumption for six months for recovery of Levaquinn Tendinitis. This is year 4 for me. Use the supplements, too. Cook all your food. Do not trust restaurants. Non organic sources with antiobiotics (tetracycline and amoxicillin mostly) include butter, milk, yogurts, cheeses, chicken, beef, pork, turkey, and anything with any of these is problematic.

Good luck, my friend. You found the motherlode with Kerri.
