Bone Broths

Hello I'm new to Whole 30 and I made the beef bone broth in my crock pot exactly as the recipe stated, and it yielded only 7 cups once strained. The recipe said it would yield 1 gallon. Do you think it's ok to add water to the 7 cups up to the gallon intended

yield amount?

Thanks-

You could, but you're going to water down the broth and it may not have as much flavor.  

 

I don't know how that recipe says to do it, but for future reference, you can actually make a batch of broth, strain it all, put the bones back in the pot with fresh water and whatever vegetables and spices, and make a second batch -- it may not be as strong a flavor as the first batch, and it may not gel in the fridge as much as the first batch, but it's still got a lot of good stuff in it.

Depending on how high your crockpot simmered and how air tight the lid is as well as what sort of veggies you used, you can lose quite a bit of the original water. I did a huge stock pot of turkey broth this weekend and I lost about 6 cups of water overnight. When I do a long cook time (greater than 24 hours), I top up the water throughout the cooking time. The more "reduced" your stock becomes or the longer you cook it, the stronger it tends to be.
