Canning Homemade Beef Broth

I don’t know about you, but I just love it when I can make something that is cost efficient, tastes better that anything you can buy and makes your kitchen smell divine! Yesterday I found a beef soup bone on clearance for $1.04. Needless to say, I grabbed it, brought it home and plopped it directly into my crockpot along with 2 onions (skins on), some fresh parsley and a tad bit of sea salt. It stayed there overnight and when I came down this morning, my kitchen smelled awesome!

I then strained the broth, brought it to a boil and ladled it into 7 pint jars that had already been sterilized. I put the jars into my prepared pressure canner and processed at 11 PSI for 20 minutes. And this is what I got…dark, lovely homemade beef broth. After everything was said an done, I’ll bet it didn’t cost 2 bucks. And it will be waaaayyy better than store bought!

I am a wife, mother, business owner, farmer, foster parent, retired probation officer and so much more. :-) I love to save money any way I can. I just don’t see the sense in handing my cash over to someone else when I don’t have to. I coupon, I grow and can food, I reuse and repurpose items, I scour thrift stores and during the warmer months, my Saturday mornings consist of yard sales and our local farmer’s market with my husband. I have organized local meetings which include coupon swaps, barter clubs and swap meets. Here is where I begin to share this life with the rest of the world. This is Fine Frugality. Because being frugal is not only fine. It is FINE.

    I have NEVER purchased just a bone like that. Where do you find them??

  2. Found this one at Weis…if you don’t see one, ask the butcher. They usually have them. 🙂

  3. I make my own chicken broth but want to try veggie and beef. A friend gave me chicken feet and necks to make my next batch. It will be weird seeing feet!
