Did you take the scum off the top in the beginning, that is why I heat it to almost boiling, brings all that to the top.
yep, roasted the bones, let them soak in the vinegar water for half an hour, then brought them to the point of boil, covered them part way, let the cook slowly but like i said, maybe my stove won't simmer like it should, when i strained, had no celery left to speak of, just carrots and some onions and bonescould it be because i have city water now? something went wrong last year with out well and we've been using city water til other half has time to dig and repair the well(which will be nice to get our well water back, hate city water) anyway, like i said, going to just use the slow cooker next time
