US Wellness Meats Broth

Answered on August 19, 2014

I would love to incorporate bone broth in my daily diet. However, I think my family would protest if I tried making it at home. My husband is especially picky to the smell of foods in the house.

What are your experiences with the broth from US Wellness Meats? I was thinking about ordering some and making a soup with the broth and some veggies that I could take to work and sip on throughout the day.

Is this a good idea and would veggies/spices would you suggest.

Its really cold in my office so sipping broth/soup throughout the year would be great as I already drink hot tea daily.

There's a question on this site about the smell of making stock with some promising-sounding ideas to limit it. It doesn't bother me.

Not sure if the minerals or the gelatin is the "main" draw (it's probably a tie!). But yeah, I'd like my broth to have both!

I'd try making it at home first and see if the smell is a problem. Seems far more cost-effective to make at home rather than pay to ship what's mostly water! And I second the pressure-cooker recommendation.

I'd also like to know how it tastes. I love making chicken stocks with carcasses at home because that smells great, but beef stock not so much right off the bat.

I just bought a pressure cooker. Instant broth in 45 minutes. No froth, no mess. Love it!

I think I'd make it in a crock pot in the garage before I'd order broth over the Internet. But broth cooking smells homey and wonderful to me. Try cooling if after the first round of cooking (6-12 hours in a crock pot) and removing the solid chunk of fat at the surface, that may remove some of the smell your mate objects to.

I make a lot of bone broth and the smell is nit that strong. I either use my crock pot or my cast iron Dutch oven. By adding lovely smelling aromatics like rosemary, bay leaf and garlic to your stock while cooking it smells lovely...but I don't know what your husband likes to smell. Anywhooo....I like to add seaweed (wakame) to my finished product with a touch of coconut aminos and it tastes like that lovely mild miso you get in Japanese restaurants (I kinda miss that). The seaweed is a good source of iodine. I also like to add shredded cabbage, kale, carrots as well....

I ordered it once just to see if I liked bone broth. I thought it tasted great. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear to contain any gelatin, which as I understand it, is the main draw of bone broth. It's also insanely expensive.
