Beef knuckle bones contain rich bone marrow and are cut in large chunks. Many have meat and connective tissue intact. An excellent choice for broth or a snack for dogs on a raw diet.
Just add bones to water to start or develop extra flavor by roasting them in the oven before putting them into a pot with water and your choice of aromatics. The longer that you allow the stock to cook the more nutrient rich and gelatinous it will become. Here at Red House Ranch we simmer ours covered in the oven at 180 degrees for at least 24 hours. Add aromatics to taste - onions, garlic, bay, peppercorns, carrots, celery, fennel. We don't add salt until we're ready to use our bone broth in soup or to drink by the cup. Then, add salt to taste.
Homemade bone broth is the absolute best base for soup or stew. If you have extra time (who does?)- reduce your bone broth until it is a thick, rich demi-glace.
Each bag of bones weighs about five pounds and contains 2-3 bones.
Great for broth but one of these will also keep your large faithful hound busy for a long time.
