Bone Marrow Liquid and Crumbs

Introduction & Inspiration

Once you have oven roasted your bone marrows, you can make bone marrow liquid in addition to bone marrow crumbs. I tend to do this when I am looking to have my bone marrow liquid nice and clear with no little bits in (to make 'chocolate' and ice cream for example).

By performing this extra step, you will be able to render off a little extra fat from the bone marrow before sieving it and removing any remaining little bits with a cheesecloth. The result is a delightful liquid that is ready to be used in numerous different ways in recipes. It's the equivalent of liquid gold! What will become of the bone marrow crumbs you ask? I find these are great to add into dressings (like the Creamy Crumble Dressing) and also when making little buns.

Recipe Instructions

Make the oven roasted bone marrow as per the recipe instructions. Remove them from the oven and allow them to cool a few minutes.


With a pair of oven gloves, hold the bones and scoop the bone marrow out of each bone over a medium sized pan. (To Note: Place all the empty bones on a plate and once cool, place the bones in a freezer safe container, to make bone broth with later).


Place the pan on low-medium heat and cook for approx. 5 minutes to render a little more fat from the bone marrow. Stir regularly.


Place a fine meshed sieve over a glass container. Carefully pour the bone marrow from the pan into the sieve. The liquid fat will drain through the sieve into the container. What remains in the sieve are the bone marrow crumbs.


Use a spatula to press down on the bone marrow crumbs to extract any remaining liquid fat from the bone marrow. Once there is no further fat falling into the glass container, use the spatula to place the bone marrow crumbs that remain in the sieve, into an airtight glass container. Repeat this process until all the bone marrow in the pan has been poured into the sieve.


Allow the bone marrow crumbs to cool down in the container, before placing the lid on the container and storing it in the fridge.


To Note: The bone marrow liquid in the glass container can be poured through a cheesecloth into an airtight glass container. This will remove any finer bits still present in the bone marrow liquid that the sieve didn't catch. Allow the liquid to cool down, before placing the lid on the container and storing it in the fridge.


Ideally, purchase your meat, fat and bones from pasture raised animals that are Nitrate, Nitrite & Additive Free.
