I am trying to follow a more traditional foods diet. My naturopath wants me to eat more bone broths. I have organic grass fed beef bones in the freezer. I make the chicken broth from NT but I have not made the beef broth. Part of the reason is the length of time I am to simmer it. I am not comfortable leavign the stove on for 24 hours especially while I am sleeping. Can I use my slow cooker to make the beef broth? What setting would I use if I can? I would really like to use my slow cooker to do this it would be much easier. Thanks for any advice.

I almost always use the slow cooker for broth. I like to put it on high for the first hour, and then set it on low for the next day or so.

I do the same. I put my crock pot on high until I see it really bubbling. I then skim it and leave it on low for the next 10 hrs.<br><br>
It works great.

Good to know! I haven't made broth before, partly because of the length it needed to be on the stove. Can someone send me a link to a simple chicken and/or beef broth recipe?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> I am new to this!
