Bone Stock
----------
Toss the bones in a crockpot with 1 strip kombu seaweed, a bay leaf and a
splash of red wine or cider vinegar, and a pinch of sea salt if desired.
Pour rapidly boiling water into the pot, cover the lid with a folded towel,
and leave it set on high all day long, adding more hot water if needed. This
is Rachel Maetsz' recipe which she posted to the paleofood list about a year
ago. The crockpot method was my idea, borrowed from Laurel's Kitchen (that's
how I used to cook beans). When the broth is milky-white, strain out the
bones and ladle the hot broth into warm, sterile wide-mouth jars. Don't put
the lids on too tight or you'll never be able to get them off. Put the jars
to cool on a cake rack. When they are cool enough for the fridge, move them
there. The jars should seal. If any jar doesn't seal properly, use it first
(obviously).

We use all bones except vertebrae and fish bones. The poultry and rabbit
bones are cooked in one pot, all other bones in a separate batch. Even if we
or our guests (<--well, theoretically, LOL!) have eaten off the bones, we
use them for broth.
