Thanksgiving Turkey Bone Broth

Don’t throw away the turkey bones this Thanksgiving, once you carve that turkey clean, drop the bones into your crock pot, and make a beautiful Thanksgiving Turkey Bone Broth. It’s the perfect road to anti inflammatory health! Drink a cup or two of this a day to improve your gut health and reduce inflammation, or make my Turkey Wild Rice Soup with the bone broth as your stock base. You will have a warm body, mind and soul!

Thanksgiving Turkey Bone Broth
1 package of chicken feet (I find these in the freezer section of my co-op)
1 turkey carcass
14 cups of water, or up to about 1″ from the top of the crock pot
4 carrots -peeled and cut into chunks
2 Onions – quartered
8-10 slices of ginger root
4 cloves of garlic
salt and pepper

Place bones in the bottom of a large crock pot. Cover with water (be sure that the bones are covered with water, add more if needed). Add all vegis, salt and pepper. Cover slow cooker, and set on low for 8 to 24 hours. By cooking it on low you keep the skum to a minimum.

When the bone broth is finished, remove all bones and vegis and discard. Then strain the broth through cheese cloth or a fine stainless steel strainer, to filter the tiny bones and the bits. Discard all the small bits. Chill broth in the fridge, or freeze in quart sized containers. When chilled, broth will be jelly like. Once chilled there may be a layer of fat, you can chip this off and discard.

Warm up 8oz or so at a time and drink!

Use this as you would any other stock. Add to soups, saute’d vegis, or grains. Use your imagination
and add it to whatever you are cooking.

Bone broth has amazing immunity boosting properties. It also has healing minerals like calcium, glutamine, magnesium and collagen which promote a stronger immune system, heals leaky gut, improves digestion, fosters sleep, reduces inflammation and improves joint health!
