i think thatd be wicked cool if you actualy had a perpetual stew for like months on end
I might transfer to a crockpot
they kinda burn like a motherfucker
stove top might be the way to go if you real about having a like idk month long stew lmao
i think itd be super cool you should do that and blog post it lmao
I think the warm setting on a crockpot would be okay
It keeps at around 160-190
ah yeah that sounds smart idk much about cooking
im a bachelor chow kinda guy lol
Mcarthy after two weeks of stew
I've done continuous bone broth in a crockpot
you just have to check the bones once a day, take out any that are falling apart, and add fresh vegetables
i make broth in like 2-3 hours and its usually pretty good
chicken broth can be done in that time
Beef bones are much heavier and need to be cooked for a minimum of 12 hours to release their collagen
if im making broth i usually use jowls or hocks
I save my leftover bones from cooking pork shoulders, chicken thighs, beef roasts etc
thats actually bad ass
bring home beef neckbones, cow feet, pig and chicken feet when they go on sale
when i was a child i asked my grandfather once why he was eating the fat on the steak
fat is flavor
he said if you ever knew what it was like to be hungry youd eat the fat too
i eat the fat from the steak now
so i hella dig that you dont waste and invent ways to make use of what would have been waste
I'm poor but I eat right
My wife makes broth and cans it.
Bone broth and all kinds of stuff.
I freeze leftover broth (if I have any)
We save our veggie waste and cook it all down and make veggie broth.
When we cut up an onion we save the outside and the ends, carrot shavings, stuff like that.
We stick it in a bag, throw it in the freezer and then when we have enough we turn it into broth.
It tastes way better than store bought stuff.
the outsides of onions I don't do
I compost that and save it for planting
and onions are dirt cheap
