I just made my first bone broth with 1 pigs foot & 2 pork joint bones, let it run 24 hours & it smells amazing
All the bones/cartilage/skin etc have separated so im going fishing separating soft bits from the bones, can i basically eat all the soft bits even the skin with some hair on it?
Im planning on throwing it all into a blender along with some of the broth juice to make myself a soup, just wondering if i should be a bit of a snob when selecting my 'soft bits' to blend or ifits all good?

Yeah, RA, I doubt you'd absorb any nutritients from the hair but unless you eat a ton of it (eww) I can't imagine it causing a problem.
I'm another one who really tastes the "porky" flavor so I rarely make broth from pork. That said, I recently slow-simmered some ribs before baking and used that pork broth in my next beef bone broth pot. I didn't even taste the porky effect any more so I expect to do that from now on.

Are you trying to put me off broth? Ewwwwwwwwww! In addition to tasting good, food should be pleasant texture wise. Have you ever tried to get at a hair that gets accidentally stuck to your tongue? Seriously, worse than popcorn kernels. It is maddening and good at triggering the gag reflex. You can do what you want if you are the only one who is going to be eating this, but please promise me you won't serve hairy broth to your guests if you would like to keep them as friends. I strain my broth through a cheese cloth, metal sieve, or coffee filter to catch any tiny debris, and so far, no hairs.
