    You can skim the froth that forms at the surface of this broth as it cooks, but there's no real reason to do so. Do this only if you must have a clear broth. Otherwise, keep it in and keep the health benefits.

    I used this recipe, but cooked it 48 hours as most bone broth recipes call for. It was very good and "gelled" perfectly when chilled. I'm making it again as I type! May add a few more spices/herbs for extra flavor. But it was very good as the recipe states.  -  30 May 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Wonderful! Tomato paste and vinegar works so well. I made per recipe only changing Swanson's Beef Broth in place of water. Left slow cooker on simmer all night. The bones from supermarket had lots of meat so the result is a very tasty vegetable beefy bone broth. This is a keeper for me as husband asked me to make (he's ill) and I didn't think I would like it but I've had three bowls today - soooo good.  -  07 Apr 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I make this for my dog. She loves it, me not so much. For the dog I leave the garlic out.  -  04 Feb 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
