Tasty Facts

– If you use less water when cooking bone broth, then it will be rich, and therefore tasty. However, the water must cover the bones.

– Double filling of the bones can be omitted and limited only to the collection of foam that forms during cooking. But it should be taken into account: harmful substances that enter the body of the animal accumulate in the bones. Most of it goes into the first water at the beginning of the boil and is poured out with it. In addition, cooking in two waters allows you to completely get rid of protein flakes that remain in the broth, even if the foam is carefully removed.

– Boiling time for bones depends on the type and age of the animal. Beef bones are boiled for up to 5 hours, lamb up to 4 hours, poultry bone broth – 1 hour.

– The broth on which it is planned to cook the first course should not be heavily salted. The taste of the broth may change when other products are added (this often happens when cabbage soup or borscht is cooked with sour cabbage).
