Thanksgiving dinner wouldn’t be complete without a perfectly roasted turkey, and chances are it’s also the star of your next meals as you try to make use of the leftovers over the next few days. If you’re tired of making the usual turkey sandwiches, then why not try a more versatile and healthful dish like this free-range turkey bone broth recipe?
This recipe combines the mouthwatering flavors of roasted turkey with the freshness of organic vegetables and herbs, resulting in a nutritious broth that can surely soothe your senses with every sip. You can even mix it with soups and stews to make them more savory and healthy.
Serving Size: 3 Quarts
1 free-range roasted turkey carcass
1/2 cup Dr. Mercola’s apple cider vinegar
4 quarts filtered water
3 celery stalks, halved
3 carrots, halved
3 onions, quartered
Handful of fresh parsley
1. Place turkey carcass in a large pot or a crockpot, add apple cider vinegar and enough water to cover the bones.
2. Let the mixture sit for one hour so the vinegar can leach the mineral out of the bones.
3. Add the vegetables and bring to a boil. If there’s any scum then skim it from the top and discard.
4. Reduce to a low simmer, cover and cook for 24 to 72 hours (if you're not comfortable leaving the pot to simmer overnight, turn off the heat and let it sit overnight, then turn it back on and let simmer all day the next day).
5. Check the pot or crock pot every 8 hours or so and add water as needed.
6. During the last 10 minutes of cooking, throw in a handful of fresh parsley for added flavor and minerals.
7. Let the broth cool and strain it.
8. Add sea salt to taste and drink the broth as is, or store in the fridge for five to seven days or in the freezer for up to six months for use in soups or stews.
