    Bones from conventionally reared animals

    I am able to obtain a lot of bones from a local butcher but more than likely these bones will be from conventionally raised cows and not fully grass fed. Thankfully the agricultural practices in my country are quite good so the cows will likely be out in the grass most of the year but are...

    Pressure Cooker VS. "Regular" Boiling To Make Gelatin

    When does the intense heat of a pressure cooker start to "ruin" bone broth's chance of gelling as opposed to it remaining liquid when refridgerated? I've tried pressure cookers as well as reglar large pots to boil but get mixed results. Is a long "moderate" boil in a pot, 12-24 hours better...

    Bone Broth Won't Gel - Dump It & Keep Trying?

    My current batch of bones produces broths that are thick, milky white & opaque W/ usual fat atop but won't gel, though they're the same grass fed beef bones I used before. What's the problem, and, is the "broth" they produce worth consuming?

    Chicken broth instead of gelatin acceptable?

    I don't eat beef or pork products. I do eat poultry and seafood. I was trying to figure out what to use instead of gelatin since I can't find poultry exclusive gelatin. Would chicken broth be acceptable? And have the same benefits? Also is gelatin necessary outside of eating muscle meats?

Is my stuff any good - would...
