They would not let me come along. When I'm bored, I get creative with electronics and programming. They would not like what I can make out of parts scavenged from the spaceship if they lock me into it for a few months
I'm buying most of the meat we eat at a local farmer. It's always nice to be able to bring the kids and pet the animals before you buy them.
Today I wanted to buy some meat for a slow cooking stew, and I like to put a piece of bone in it for the taste.
But he stopped doing the nice little pieces of soup bone that I used to buy, because it ruins the saw a bit to fast and he doesn't want to buy another one for the purpose.
But if I saw it myself I could get it for free.
So, what do I do with a five pound marrow bone?
Anyone got any good recipe for making your own stock?
Any other Ideas?
People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.
Hmmm, I hadn't thought of using the slow cooker for that. Great idea! I usually toss everything in a big stock pot and let it simmer, but someone has to keep an eye on it. The crock pot can be safely ignored for days. Thanks!
My housemate and I used to make a lot of bone broth from a local 100% grass fed beef farm[^], but we stopped because it does sort of stink up the house cooking it for 3 days (at the time, I had a couple other young women staying upstairs and they were vegetarian, and it just so happened that the stinkiest room in the house was their bedroom!!!)
One of the important things (as mentioned in the first link) is to add vinegar as that helps to draw out the calcium so you get a more nutritious broth.
