    Are we eating the right bits ?

    I have been playing around with cooking down sinew and boiling bones. Why, you may wonder would someone not obsessed with Macbeth do that, well let me explain.
    Collagen as we all know is very important for skin and joints, it is in cosmetics and sold for joint support.
    But it goes further than that, Collagen is the most important protein matrix in our bodies. Most peoples diets are deficient which is easy to demonstrate when nails and skin improve rapidly with Collagen supplementation.
    So here we have the most complete and important protein from the game we take being discarded or left on the hill.
    Bones are made of one type of Collagen and sinews another. Cooking them down in water breaks the Collagen into a semi Hydrolyzed form which is easier to absorb. Not as good as the commercial product where enzymes are used to finish the process but still very good for us. Bones are also the bodies storehouse for minerals, so every stew and soup should have bone stock or 'Broth' added.
    Keep those deer bones, saw them up and boil them to make a gelatinous stock and keep the sinew and gristle trimmings including silver-skin and cook them with your stews. The leg sinews like hamstrings are gold and are made of a different type of Collagen. Keep these and cook them till they have melted.
    12 grams per day is the dose that is needed to make a difference. 1 kg sinew + 1kg water when boiled down = 2kg @ 50% = 24 grams / day dose
    If you cant carry it all, leave the backsteaks behind for the birds and take all the sinews and leg bones home

    Well yes, joint support is going to be in demand after the next election.

    But all the same, I'll stick to back steaks I reckon.

    Don't forget the offal. Health check n the animals intestines and thorax and the bounty of heart, liver and kidneys. Just had a haggis pie from my favourite local bakery (the owner is a Scot) and that reminded me that , yes, the lungs are a go too.

    I do this with small game. Thickens the liquid, nice and gelatinous. Any left over liquid is made into vege soup, full of hippy food like lentils. Soup like my mother would make that you could pretty much spread on toast.

    We have a student at work who is getting collagen off animal skins with acetic acid, which I'm drying in the freeze dryer. They are planning on feeding it to some animals to see if it improves their ligaments etc...

    If you're old enough to need joint support, you are too old to be fit and proper. I'm paraphrasing GCNZ...

    Last night I had a boil up of deer sinew and bones, having cracked the bones open first. Let it cook for ages in the pressure cooker. Put it in the fridge this morning and just checked it now. What a great brew - solid spoon bending gelatine / collagen. First impressions are that after a couple of doses one woman wont be enough !!
