    Some of the best chicken broth is made from the bones and skin of commercial bbq chickens. I will save and freeze the bones of a couple or three and then combine with chopped onion, celery, garlic and carrot (you don't have to skin the onion or garlic by the way) and throw it all into the stock pot with water. I simmer as long as possible and then cool and strain. You do not have to freeze if you have an extra fridge. I bring the strained broth up to a rolling boil, pour into quart jars, clean the rims and seal with mason jar lids (soak the lids in hot water for 5 minutes to soften the rubber seal as per directions on the package) Immediately put into the fridge. The lids should be curved inward to the jar, showing a proper seal, when the jars have cooled. I have a second fridge and have a shelf full of broth and homemade soups that I have canned in the same way. Any jar that does not seal is either reheated to try again or used asap.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    tranum - you said you simmered for two days...did you refrigerate overnite or continually keep on stove? And then you blended - including the bones?

    veggie broth from scraps...does that mean the peeling/trimmings of fresh veggies..like beet tops, asparagus ends, cauliflower, cabbage leaves, etc?
    I cook my broths in the oven because I'm LAZY. I don't need to watch so carefully and less mess on my stove top. Of course, once the soup bones have browned they can be transferred to a large pot and covered with water, then simmered until the meat falls off the bones, etc.

    Can you put the crockpot on a porch or carport if your weather permits it and you have one? I know a lot of people who do that. Not the stockpot of course. Or maybe look for
    another crockpot

    I usually make gravy or sauce from the meat juices but don't save it for later use. I was taught there is always the chance of bacteria by not getting it chilled all the way through fast enough. Now there are several excellent bone broth brands that keep on the shelf until I need them.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    I have been making chicken broth in the slow cooker lately. I look for chicken wings that are discounted in the store - place in the cooker and cook all day in water or bought chicken stock. At the end of the day I drain the broth from the bones and send the bones to the dog. I pour the broth in a large container, cover and refrigerate overnight. Next day I scoop off fat and put broth in small containers to freeze. This broth has a jelled consistency when cold from the bones.

    I am not familiar with fat being good for us. Interesting. Please tell me more.

    I simmered left over chicken bones for about two days, and the bones got so tender I could crush them with my fingers. I put all this into the blender and had some wonderful broth. Then I cooked one cup of brown rice with three cups of the broth. Delicious.
    Fat is actually a benefit to us, unless it is vegetable fat that has been made into margarine. Margarine is made from unnaturally chemically treated plants and coloring to be “just like butter”. All of those oils either come from corn, which if you eat enough to consume 1 tablespoonful of corn oil, your body will make you puke to prevent overdose from being too full, or non food plants that are chemically treated to look edible. That is over half the reason for the weight crisis in this country. None of it is nourishing food. I stopped eating it, even in restaurants over 14 years ago and I am still loosing weight with out any diet. I have lost over 200 lbs in that time. It really is that toxic to humans. I still bless the little old lady (whose grand daughter was the governor of Georgia at the time) who told me about all the controversy when margarine was invented. Dairy farmers actually went to court to try and stop its packaging for humans. Margarine was originally developed to fatten hogs for market, except it killed the hogs, so they sell it to us! Please take the time to look it up.
    Also, be aware that All restaurants use it because it is so cheap. Most of them have a “cutsie” name like “Goldo”. Yech, and your welcome.

    If you always do, what you have always done, The results never change. Change is the wings you give yourself.

    I understand even lard has a component in it good for humans. Like the old saying says “all things in moderation”. We avoid anything with “high fructose corn syrup”.

    Oh My, My vet told me never to give dogs chicken bones. Never.

    Dogs should never be allowed to eat cooked Chicken Bones. Never feed them, and never let them loose in areas where people may have been eating Cooked Chicken.
    Cooked Chicken Bones become very brittle. They will splinter easily and can break in to very sharp shards. If your Dogs ate Cooked Chicken Bones there is risk of it getting a splinter of Bone stuck in its Mouth, its Throat or in its Intestine. The Bones can pierce Intestines or form a hard blockage that can be life threatening.
    This is not to say that this will occur, the majority of times you may have nothing to worry about but there is a risk. I am not saying you MUST go to the Vets but it is a real cause for concern and if you have the slightest worry I would recommend you get your Dog checked at the Vets.

    I too have always been told that chicken bones are dangerous for dogs. You can look up yourself or ask vet.

    Yummy, yummy. I love bone broth made well and I know it's made well, when it jell's up when cool. Lots of nutrition and flavor. Makes the best soups
    Create something beautiful from scraps.

    I don’t doubt what you say, but thinking back to our farm dogs (each who lived long lives). They ate every table scrap Mother gave them, chicken bones included. We raised our own chickens so we had chicken often. Just an observation.
