Conventional Bone Marrow in Broth OK if skim fat off top?

Answered on August 19, 2014

I don't have access to fancy grass fed beef bones.

I do have access to supermarket beef bones.

If I use the supermarket bones in my bone broth, cool & allow the fat the rise to the top, and skim it off & throw it away, is that ok?

Is the marrow all fat or are there other healthful ingredients in the marrow that won't be skimmed and tossed?

I presume the minerals in the supermarket bones are ok.

Thanks for any thoughts,

Mike

Other than, like, if you don't think it tastes good. A really marrowy broth is a bit rich for me personally, but yeah otherwise I agree.

There is no reason to skim the fat.

From what I've read yes. Just don't save the fat.
