       Yield: 1 text
  
  
   Beef: Saw or crack fresh trimmed beef boes to enhance extraction of
   flavor. Rinse bones and place in a large stockpot or kettle, cover bones
   with water, add pot cover, and simmer 3 to 4 hours. Remove bones, cool
   broth, and pick off meat. Skim off fat, add meat removed from bones to
   broth, and reheat to boiling. Fill jars, leaving 1-inch headspace.
   
   Chicken or turkey: Place large carcass bones in a large stockpot, add
   enough water to cover bones, cover pot, and simmer 30 to 45 minutes or
   until meat can be easily stripped from bones. Remove bones and pieces,
   cool broth, strip meat, discard excess fat, and return meat to broth.
   Reheat to boiling and fill jars, leaving 1-inch headspace.
