Well That’s Just Offal: Bone Broth

Challege #4 – Awful Offal


I had to look up what offal was. Probably because I don’t eat anything that is considered offal. The only person I know who does is Sumo’s dad, and that’s because he enjoys a rare plate of liver and onions. Aside from that, I believe I may have an underdeveloped palate – or just a weak stomach. 

I don’t know, but I have no interest in eating brains, or tongue, or heart. I’m not judging those who do – hey, more power to ya! (Protein to ya?) But for me, just, nope. 

So figuring out what to make this week was hard. 

The only reason I figured something out, and am still alive in this challenge, is because I made tacos using the meat from a rotisserie chicken. 

Before throwing away the bones, a thought crept into my head. If I use those bones to make bone broth, is that considered offal? I’m still not sure if it is or not, but I’m figuring that some of the bone marrow got in there for flavoring. And that, my friends, I am perfectly ok with. ChickenBoneBroth2

Plus, it turns out that bone broth is pretty healthy. Check out this video/article about it’s benefits!

About Chrissy

Hi! I'm Chrissy. I'm a 31 year old cast-iron (pretty much) newbie. I'm learning more as I go and screwing up quite a bit along the way. I'm a northern girl (Yay, PA!) who has been transplanted to the south and am trying to embrace becoming a southern lady. Hence the cast-iron pan. I've never made my own biscuits and I have no idea what a dutch baby is. But you can bet that I'll figure all of that out. So stick around and see what happens as I learn the in- and-outs of cooking with cast-iron.
