First find a source for grass fed beef bones… Soup bones, marrow bones and knuckles … any parts with lots of cartilage… I roast my bones on 350 for about an hour to hour and a half with olive oil and salt.
Depending on how much you want to make you can use a crockpot or a stock pot on the stove. It will cook about 72 hours.
Cover the bones with filtered water … the better the water the better the broth.
Bring to a boil…
Skim off the weird scummy stuff that comes to the top and reduce to a simmer. Cover and let sit… Stir the bones every once in a while.
After 24 hours the broth should start turning brown…. At this point you can rough cut some veggies and spices to taste. Onions, Celery, Thyme, Bay Leaf, Rosemary … whatever …
Let cook another 12 to 24 hours.
Pull your bones and strain the whole mess … I use a colander with cheese cloth laid inside …
Cool…. Place in a heat resistant bowl, Cover with cellophane and put in the fridge until the fat on top hardens
Carefully remove the fat… spatula works good .. you can also save this for cooking … it's good lard.
Jar, bottle and freeze what you won't use in a week…
The more cartilage parts you have in your broth the more gelatinous it will be when cool … Gelatin is good and a great source of collagen ...
