You Will Need:

Directions:

  1. COMBINE beef bones and water in a large stainless steel saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and skim foam. Add onion, carrot, celery, bay leaf and salt to taste. Cover and boil gently for 2 to 3 hours or until desired flavor is reached. (For stronger flavor, boil longer and add beef bouillon cubes.)
  2. REMOVE beef bones and discard. Strain stock through a fine sieve or cheesecloth-lined strainer. Discard vegetables and bay leaf. Allow stock to cool until fat solidifies. Skim off fat.
  3. PREPARE weighted-gauge pressure canner. Heat jars in simmering water until ready for use. Do not boil.  Wash lids in warm soapy water and set bands aside.
  4. HEAT stock to a boil.
  5. LADLE the hot beef stock into hot jars leaving 1 inch headspace. Wipe rim. Center hot lid on jar. Apply band and adjust until fit is fingertip tight. Place jar on rack in pressure canner containing 2 inches of simmering water. Repeat until all jars are filled. 

  6. PLACE lid on canner and turn to locked position. Adjust heat to medium-high. Vent steam for 10 minutes. Place counter weight or pressure regulator on vent; bring pressure to 10 pounds (psi) for a weighted- gauge canner or 11 pounds (psi) for a dial-gauge canner.
  7. PROCESS Pint jars in pressure canner at 10 pounds pressure 20 minutes and quart jars 25 minutes, adjusting for altitude. Turn off heat; cool canner to zero pressure. Remove jars and cool. Check lids for seal after 24 hours. Lid should not flex up and down when center is pressed.
