Egg shell broth?

I've seen some of the things folk do with egg shells, some throw them away, some eat them like crackers, or grind them up and mix with lemon juice or crush them up and put them in coffee. Has anyone tried putting them in with some bone broth. If you're looking for calcium and minerals and such it seems that treating them like bones, in a crockpot with some vinegar, would be the way to go. Anybody tried this, or shall I let you all know in a day or 2?

What an excellent idea! I've tried dissolving finely ground eggshell in lemon juice, which worked - but after a few hours some strange solids precipitated out and I didn't use it. This sounds altogether simpler and better!

Hmm...I'm going to try that. If we throw them out anyway it wouldn't hurt to try and leech out whatever we can.

I add egg shells from a week's worth of eggs to my broth every time I make it. I also add shrimp shells whenever I have them. Both increase the glucosamine and chondroitin amounts in the broth.
