Question Use for Pork Bones

I have some pork bones with some fat and a tiny bit of meat. I hate to throw them out. Are there any uses for them?

I love them in beans or split peas. The pork flavoring is excellent.

Ad them to a pot of long cooking tomato sauce. They add a great flavor to the sauce.

How do make tomato sauce?

I browned what I have and have them in a pot. How hard will it be to fish the bones out when finished? How do you generally make tomato sauce?
Thanks.

How hard it is to fish them out depends on how small the pieces are.

Put your collander or strainer in a bowl large enough to hold all the liquid, and pour your bones and liquid in there. The bones stay in the strainer and the bowl has your liquid in it.

I use them often; sometimes I mix bones. But I make the stock first. BOnes, water, carrots, onions, celery, garlic, seasonings. Then strain (as already mentioned, in a colander), THEN cook the beans, lentils, etc in the strained stock. At this point you can refrigerate the stock over night, skim the fat, then freeze. I will often reserve the pork bones, some T-bones, chicken bones, none of which are enough in themselves, and make a mixed meat stock.

Question Yum!

I did the tomato sauce with San Marzano tomatoes, garlic and red wine & water for about 2 hours. Then, I remembered I had some dried smoked chipoltes and threw in a couple. I got a little carefree and put in some smoked paprika and a fresh poblano pepper. I don't know what it should be called but it tastes so rich and good. Other than eating it with a spoon by itself, What can I do with it????

Next time I'll make stock with the bones first so I wont have to dig the bones out.

Make chili, or a spicy spaghetti with meatballs.
