Foods to supplement collagen

Gelatin is a substance found in the bones, skins, and other connective tissues of animals. They are commonly found in soups, stews, and broths, as they occur naturally from cooking meat and bones. Commercial gelatin is made primarily from the skins and hooves. It is refined and purified to remove any flavors, leaving only the gelatin protein. Home cooks won't be able to produce clear, flavorless gelatin from the bones, but simple boiling can produce a very strong gel with a mild flavor, suitable for use in soups or sauces. .

First method :


3 kg of bones

1 teaspoon of black pepper

a teaspoon of cinnamon

1 teaspoon of nutmeg

1 teaspoon of sage

3 teaspoons of bay leaf

3 teaspoons of table salt

Half a spoon of cardamom love


Place the bones in a large saucepan with twice its weight in cold water. This will be about 5 gallons. Depending on the size and shape of the bones, it may be necessary to use a little more water to keep them covered

Bring the pot to a simmer. When surface proteins coagulate on the bone, they will rise to the surface as a gray-brown membrane. The fat must be removed regularly, so as not to rise to the surface.

Bones simmer for six to eight hours. If necessary, add small amounts of fresh water to keep the bones submerged until the end of the cooking time.

Remove the bones from the pot, and filter the liquid through several layers of cheesecloth to remove any solids. Get rid of any grease that may float to the surface.

Return the liquid to the stove in a clean saucepan, and cook over a low boil until reduced by half. Transfer it to a smaller saucepan, and reduce by half again. Repeat twice until the amount of liquid is 1/16 of its original volume.t

Freezing of the reducing liquid

Cool the resulting liquid in a sterile container with a tight-fitting lid. The liquid will turn out to be a thick rubbery consistency with a mild meat flavour. Use it by melting it in a double boiler, stirring it in a small amount of boiling water, or adding it directly to soups and sauces..

The same procedure is used to make broths for soups and sauces. Add 5 lbs. of beef, veal, or oxtail, as well as 2 lbs. of coarsely chopped onions and 1 pound each of chopped carrots and celery.

If you follow the same procedure to filter and reduce the broth, you will end up eating a naturally intensely flavored beef jelly
