My husband and I disagree on whether it is okay to save chicken drumstick bones (which the family has eaten off of) in the freezer, to later make bone broth out of. (I picked remaining meat, etc. off the bones and rinsed them under the faucet before putting them in the freezer.)
I think it's okay because any germs from our mouths would get killed in the freezer and/or during broth-making. My husband thinks it's unsafe and gross. I did some Google searches and can't seem to find discussion of this issue.

I put the bones in water after eating and bring the to a boil to kill of anything there and then. Then I rinse in cold water and freeze them. When I make stock, I also use some fresh bones. I haven't died yet!
