At the Rancho we believe in utilizing the whole hog and letting no part of the animal go to waste. Add our femur bones to any soup, stew or pork-based sauce to boost the depth of flavor. Homemade bone broths are a powerful superfood drawing out amino acids and minerals from the bones that help reduce inflammation, aid in joint care and act as a weight management tool.
Create your own bone broth: put 2 lbs. of bones in a crock pot, cover with water and add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. Cook for at least 8 hours on low, strain through a fine mesh sieve and season with salt and pepper. Or roast the bones and add to a pot with mirepoix (small diced carrot, onion and celery or any other aromatics), bay leaf, whole peppercorns and water to make your own pork stock.
Total weight: Approx. 1 lb., frozen cut and whole femur bones
