Marrow IV

May 24, 2010

As I was emptying the pot of yesterdays marrowextracting trials I noticed that the fat that was floating on the surface had a somewhat different consistancy than the fat I usually get when boiling stock. Could it be the marrow that had reconstituated itself? As I noticed this when I was pouring out the water it was a bit to late to really study the fat. Perhaps the last attempt should be redone.

Back home I managed to find an article on the web that mentions the Faeroean bones

S Hamilton-Dyer
“Skriðuklaustur Monastery, Iceland”

Not the one I originally read, but at least it had a reference to the bones I was thinking of. Interesting to note that those bones would have been drilled in the “short end”
