We've been looking at one for a long time. My little Nesco has been used hard.
@LMP, I always do my bone broth in the crockpot. I usually have a chicken pot going and beef pot. Low/med for atleast 2 days.

My daughter is dehydrating a lot lately, she recently did a chicken jerky that was very good.
Thank you two!..being able to use the crock is essential..i can't imagine keeping the stove going for two-days! Then doing up meat birds in the summer ..the crock pot is my best friend!

They are a problem to every person living on this section of the road. I was warned about them by the landlord & every neighbor. They are just the type of people who like to cause problems for others.
I am so sorry you have to endure this. Positive thoughts for you and your family..i tryuly hope thigns start to turn around for you.

. We've got two parrots, a dog and 8 chickens and two baby chicks, around this forum, that's small potatoes...
Can we talk about bone broth? What are the benefits? Is it tasty? Never heard of it before except on this forum.
*edited for auto correct.
haha, yeah ,petting zoo...and you didn't even factor in the two legged creatures roaming around...

see...you got the gold there hendricks!! I have been coveting those buggers for some time now...have only heard good things about them, and now another..
I have a small dehydrator & am very happy with what it does for what it is...I think you may have the same small one too.(hendricks)

Comparison next to one of our eggs and a store bought egg. It's weird though, she hatched from a white egg, and she lays creamish brown.

All three of us drink a cup everyday. I've noticed less illness over the past year. Our hair and nails grow like crazy. Less aching joints. Me personally, I've noticed less digestive issues and with IBS and a gluten sensitivity my system is a mess.
Here's a good link:
"gelatin"...good for you stuff..like taking a glucosamine & chondroitin pill for the joints.
I have digestive issues also, one being I can not eat meat...I would love to do this,(bone broth), am going to for everyone else..just a bit concerned about what it may do/cause with my issues..I can digest gelatin without too much issue, so I am hopeful the body can handle this broth.
