Buying Beef Bones and More
A running question that I have received in response to my Beef Bone Broth Video, which I want to address here, is “Where do you get your bones?” So I wanted to share that I purchase many of the bones for my bone broths from US Wellness Meats. In addition to beef bones, US Wellness Meats sells a variety of grass-fed meats and pastured chickens.
(Note: Use promocode MARYNEST to save 15% off regular-priced items on your US Wellness Meats order.)
What kind of bones do you want to look for? Be sure to watch my Best Bones for Making Beef Bone Broth video. I especially enjoy adding a few ox tails to help guarantee that my Beef Bone Broth will be gelatinous…and a few chicken feet to make sure that my Roast Chicken Bone Broth is gelatinous. You’ll often hear me call oxtails and chicken feet my insurance policies!! LOL!!

Hi Mary, I’ve seen you Beef bone broth video several times and you mention to only cook the beef broth for 12 hrs. You also mentioned that the bones can be used again after the first cooking. My question is, can I continue to cook the first batch of bones for more then 12 hr if I will be cooking the bones again any way a second time , why not continue to cook the bones for another 8-12 hours? If it is not Recomended to cook for longer then 12 hour, what is the rationale? Thank for your time and kind consideration.
Hi Janette, Thank you so much for your comment! This is a great question. Yes, you can cook the bone broth for more than 12 hours but the only draw back is that sometimes the longer cooking time can start to de-grade the collagen and create a final product that is watery. The second batch is really just to see if you can eek out any little bit more of nutrition – and it may or may not be gelatinous. I just hate to waste, so I like to always try to see if I can get a bit more bone broth out of my bones. Definitely experiment and see what works best. I did a lot of experimentation and I share it here in this playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLkRuW3pBo2U0lOYjdmYtG2uVEG9Xn6yRn I also have another playlist where I share more info: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLkRuW3pBo2U0u_bmLMQANuLN1u_IMhF– Hope these help. Love, Mary
I have looked for a version of the bone broth recipe but cant find one. Can you help me?

Thanks for your patience! 🙂 Here is the link to the recipe: https://marysnest.com/recipe/how-to-make-rich-and-gelatinous-beef-bone-broth/ Please let me know if you have any questions. I’m happy to help! All the best, Mary
Do you need to dethaw the frozen bones before making bone broth?
Hi Rachel, Thanks so much for visiting!! That is a great question. If the marrow bones are frozen, you can go ahead an put them, as is, into your slow cooker or stock pot and let them soak in the acidulated water for a bit longer than 1 hour as they defrost and have their collagen leach into the water. As to the meaty bones, and collagen rich bones (oxtails, etc.), I recommend that those be defrosted so that you can brown them in the oven before adding them to your stock pot or slow cooker. Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions!! I am SO happy to help!! Love, Mary
