Can we talk "Perpetual Bone Broth"?
I have been perfecting my chicken bone broth over the last year but usually, I can make enough to feed myself and give a little to my toddler (who isn't really interested in just drinking...she's 2). But there isn't enough for my husband. He's about as excited about it as the two year old though. I hope to really convince him how valuable it can be, but my first problem was that we'd never have enough if he did decide to start drinking it. Then I saw this plan to make it all through the week.
--What about lead in slow cookers these days? Does anybody know really know your stuff when it comes to that? What brand? Mine is old and probably terrible when it comes to lead. :\ Wondering which is better, broth with lead or no broth at all.
--What about safety...would it worry you to run your crock pot all day, all night? Every day, even when you're gone from the house?
--Do you think this method really yields healthy broth all week long or do you think that the nutrients are watered down and not worth it by, say, Thursday?
--Is the vinegar needed or not?!! She doesn't use it with chicken bones. I was spalshing in ACV. I hate to keep wasting it if it's not even needed. Most recipes call for it.
