I usually roast the bones at around 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until they are nicely browned - make sure you add a bit of water to the pan after they are done roasting so you get all the good drippings added to your broth. An electric roaster will NOT pressure can - you need a pressure canner/cooker for that - the kind that has a pressure gauge on it. If you have one of those, I usually can quart jars at about 10 lb. of pressure for 20-25 minutes.

Soooo many good tips. Thank you everyone!

How long do you roast the bones in the oven?

MISSSVJS - How long do you pressure can the jars? I have an electric roaster I use when canning venison. Time for an off-season dust off.

Making soup/broth with the bones helps add calcium and protein to the diet. If you are using beef bones with a little meat still on them, then the 'bone broth' is actually beef tea, and that was often what people drank if they were feeling off colour.

As already mentioned, it is best to roast the bones off in the oven first. It improves flavour and colour.

The main difference between stock and bone broth is that bone broth is usually cooked a lot longer than stock - 24 hours or more - to release the good collagen and minerals from the bones. As far as aiding in weight loss, the only thing I can come up with is that bone broth is low in calories and may help to fill you up, so if you want to try it, I'd drink a cup or so of it before a meal and see if it helps with that feeling of fullness so you don't eat as much? It's probably also helpful as something to sip on between meals.

Thank you so much!

I remember as a child my parents would make all soups with the bones. I never quite understood why. Must be they knew there was extra nutrition in those bones!

All the broth I make is bone broth. IMO when making stock the bones just make it taste so much better.

I didn't know that there was any difference.

That being said. I don't believe that it would be a magic bullet for weight loss. As I said. All I make is bone broth and I still have a weight problem.

I make my own - it's too expensive, in my opinion, to buy. Plus, it's very easy to make - it just takes a while. I don't know how the store bought bone broth is made, but when I make it I take either chicken bones or beef soup bones (if I'm making beef bone broth - I roast them in a hot oven until they are browned - gives the broth a better flavor), place them in a large crockpot or an electric roaster, cover them with filtered water (I have a reverse osmosis system), add some apple cider vinegar (you won't taste it but it helps soften the bones so the good stuff is released), and then add whatever other extras you want - I usually add onion, garlic, celery (especially the leaves), carrots, sea salt, parsley, etc. I cook my bone broth for at least 24 hours on low heat. Then I strain the solids from the broth and either pressure can it or freeze it. Good bone broth should actually gel when it cools. The broth I make is very good to just heat and drink, but you can use it for soups, to cook rice or other grains in, etc. I don't see why you couldn't do the same with the store bought - my suggestion would be to taste it and see if you like it that way; if not, start experimenting with other seasonings/spices.

Hi Friends!

I've been seeing more and more cartons of bone broth in my local store. Does anyone drink it? (I've seen online that some folks use it for weight loss.) How does it taste? Do you add any spices e.g. pepper, onion powder?

Thanks for your input.
