I’m having trouble dissolving my blackened bones in vinegar. I went for it a second time today and I didn’t get any sort of science experiment foaming eruption, just some bubbles. The first time I thought it was maybe because I used multiple vinegars, rice wine, red wine etc but this last time I stuck with distilled white and just a few bubbles. Do the bones need to go into the vinegar hot? I used beef marrow bones, roasted them, removed the marrow then barbecued in the coals till black and cracking apart.

The bones won’t dissolve. The chemical reaction between the vinegar and the bones puts Calcium and Phosphorous into solution.  The warmer the vinegar, the faster it happens.  It won’t go crazy most of the time.  If you want to see a more violent reaction, heat the vinegar first. If it starts steaming, its too hot and you are cooking off the compounds that make it vinegar.
