I added baby to the title just to get the alliteration.
I was hassled by a friend to make bone broth. Up to a few months ago I never thought about bone broth or ever thought I would want it if I did. I thought broth was something in a can made by Swanson’s. It turns out it is something you can make at home and I did it.
My process for making the broth was first getting the bones. It was not easy. I went to about four meat places and was told no bones. I was beginning to think boneless cows, pigs, and chickens were being raised. I took a ten minute train ride to the downtown area and went into a butcher shop in and alley and asked, “Do you have any bones?”
The response was, “Is Pork bones okay? “
Then I got three big bones I think they were connected somehow to a pig’s shoulder. I got home with these and put them in a pressure pot with water, vegetables, and some spices. To not bore you with the details it worked. Or I think I did it right because the broth gelled after the fat was taken off it when it cooled down. I made a couple quarts of the stuff.
