homemade bone broth question

I'm making my first batch of bone broth using the balanced bites recipe (using a crockpot). Once it comes to a boil I'm supposed to turn it to low but my crockpot always seems to run hot and continue boiling even on low.

So the question is, can I leave it on low overnight or should I try the "warm" setting?

You're supposed to leave it "simmering" but not violently boiling.

Hi! I have been using the same recipe and it comes out great on a constant boil. My crockpot also runs hot. I do it on two cycles of 10 hours.

I have the same problem. I like to just simmer. What you can do is move the pot off-center in relation to the flame until it just simmers.

It depends on the bones for some reason. Some bones I cooked on HIGH setting and the broth would not boil and some I did on LOW setting, and it would still bubble.

I would keep it on LOW for about 20 hours or so. WARM setting is hot enough.

I use the crockpot set on low when I make mine. It also boils, but I've never had any problem with the outcome. It may weaken the gelatin a bit, but all the nutrients are still there.

If the "boiling" is gentle on the low setting, it should be okay. On the stove, stock is always in gentle bubbling mode. I cook my stock in the slow cooker on high for most of the time as the low setting is too low to allow for those gentle bubbles.
