Bone Broth

Answered on August 16, 2016

I made chicken bone broth last night in our slow cooker.  I strained the broth into a large pot and covered it... It was still very hot. How long should you let it rest before putting into the refigerator?  I placed it in the fridge after four hours and 15 minutes. It was still warm.  Is this a concern for bacteria or should it be safe?

no concern really. It takes a long time for bacteria to develop, unless you purposefully inject it with bacteria. I make it in my 5 gallon pot, about 4 gallons at a time, and it takes 24 hours to cool, after which I can put a gallon or so in the fridge and the rest in the freezer. Just keep it covered the whole time.

Good answer by Glib, but as long as you don't leave it out for 3+ days you should not have any problems with bacteria developing.
