    Turkey bone broth

    Turkey bone broth

    Thanksgiving is almost upon us and I’m sure many of you are on “full-on” recipe mode.  What recipes to do for the big day and what recipes to make with your turkey leftovers?  Before discarding your turkey carcass, why not whip up a batch of nutritious turkey bone broth?  Bone broth is thought to promote healthy digestion, reduce joint pain and inflammation, inhibit infection, promote healthy bone formation, and promote healthy hair and nail growth.  It contains gelatin, chondroitin, glucosamine, calcium, magnesium, and many amino acids such as glycine, proline, and glycine.  I just think it’s delicious, and I hate to see a bird go to waste.  Please remember to use a organically-raised, pastured or grass-fed animals turkey for your broth.  Enjoy!

    Turkey Broth

    1 turkey carcass

    1 cup of carrots, cubed

    1/2 cup of celery, sliced

    1/2 cup of onions chopped

    1 bay leaf

    2 tbsp of raw apple cider vinegar

    Salt and pepper to taste


    1.  Place turkey in a large cast iron pot and cover with water.
    2. Add carrots, celery, onions, bay leaf, and vinegar.
    3. Bring to a boil and remove scum that rises to the top.
    4. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 3 hours.
    5. Strain.
    6. Season to taste

    Turkey broth is extremely versatile.  I used this batch to make my most recent farmhouse bowl: shiitake mushrooms, raabe, radish, green onions, Forbidden rice ramen, fig compote, and a soft boiled egg. Yummy…
