Making Bone Broth
What is left is a wonderful bone broth that can be used in soups or simply drank for its many health benefits (see 8 Reasons to Try Bone Broth). Freeze in usable increments (I freeze 3 cups at a time) and it will last you through the cold winter season. This will make between 8-12 cups depending on the size of your slow cooker.
I separate the skin/meat/veggies from the bone and give mix it with kibble for my dog (no more than 1/2 cup at a time). Throw the bones out - DO NOT give any animal cooked bones as they can splinter in their stomach and cause big problems.
