Pork bones... Stock options

iheartcooking | Sep 29, 2010 05:05 PM

This is a multi part question, please bear with me and feel free to weigh in on any one thing if you know.

We made some pulled pork from a Boston butt in the crock pot, and when it was done, my thoughtful husband saved me the bones, having seen me reserve chicken and beef bones and toss em into the freezer to await Stock Making Day.
So I did the same with the pork bones, but I have some reservations. And many questions.

Would the fact that these bones cooked all day in the pork and imparted on them a rich porky flavor mean they've given all they could and won't be too useful to make stock out of?

If they ARE useable to make a stock (or if I go buy fresh pork bones), I think pork stock would probably be a wonderful ingredient! But what could I do with it?

I was thinking of making an Asian inspired noodle soup, something between pho and udon but with my own twist. Or maybe using is as the base for a bean soup? If so, anyone have any pointers on how to make these soups taste amazing?

So... Pork stock... What do hounds think?
