Patas de Vaca

Posted by lekorn on December 24, 2009

 I seem to be spending time making new recipes for the dogs. Today I found sliced cow hooves and so along with some very fatty meat from the ribs through it into the crockpot along with a sliced camote , a mexican sweet potato. Cooked it slow for 6 hours and it makes another collagen rich broth that will also cool into a thick gelatin.  I was reading that eating pigs feet, another source of gelatin, is the latest anti- aging craze in France. The dogs get 1/4 cup over their kibble and the camote including the purple skin, is a great source of fiber.
