Meaty oxtail and marrow bones are perfect for bone broth, these will produce a jelly-like bone broth that is dark in color and nutritious. Roasting the bones adds a beautiful color and a richer flavor. I tend to go light on the salt so taste and adjust accordingly.

  • Spread out oxtail, bones, carrots, celery, onion, and garlic on the baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until browned, about 30 minutes. Scrape contents of the baking sheet into a slow cooker. Add leek, apple cider vinegar, salt, and peppercorns. Add enough water to cover the contents but not more than 2 inches below the rim.

  • Cook on Low for 22 hours. Add bay leaves and cook for another 2 hours.

  • Strain broth through a fine mesh strainer that is lined with a double layer of cheese cloth. Refrigerate. Skim off the fat before using or freezing.

I have made this smells good but I have not tried it yet I will let you know when I get to try it, but I did cook it for 36 hours then when it was done I canned it for later use. I didn’t have any ware to get the ox tails at so just used the shank bones on this batch. I have a second batch in the crockpot with shank and neck bones my house smells amazing. Read More
