    Making a broth with bones/meat

    Making a broth with bones/meat 15th Jul 17 at 1:00 AM
    Ok so I was passing a local butcher that had a sign saying dog bones £1, my relatives are visiting in a few days with their dog so thought I would get a bag.

    The bag ended up to be massive, not sure if it was because I went about 45 minutes before closing time but its about the size of a bag for life! and the bones have scrag ends of meat on.

    A few months back I bought a big broth mix from supermarket and was thinking to make a nice meaty broth.

    But never done that before so wanted some advice.

    Thanks in advance.

    Your main challenge will be finding a big enough pan by the sound of it! Are they mixed or all one animal do you think?
    I would dump the ones that look same in a massive pan with some onion/celery, a couple of carrots, bay leaves, peppercorns and lots of water. Leave to simmer for 24 hours and then remove the bones. At that point you may want to leave boiling to reduce volume. Then use as stock.

    If you want a darker stock roast the bones in the oven until they brown then cook with the water, onions, carrots, pepper corns, bay leaves etc. You could do some light stock and some dark so that you have two different bases as it were.
