DIY: Health Supportive Turkey Bone Broth

Print

This Thanksgiving, don’t throw away the turkey bones! Instead, use them to make a deeply nourishing, healing, tummy-warming bone broth. Unlike other broths made from pork or chicken, turkey broth is immensely flavorful yet light and versatile. Don’t forget the cider vinegar when cooking, as the acidity helps draw out nutrients, trace minerals, and healing components from the bones.

The nutritional benefits of bone broth are tremendous! Adding in collagen peptides provides an additional protein boost with lots of other health benefits. Marinate on these 3 reasons to enjoy bone broth while it cooks away

1. Healthy Gut: Bone broth is packed with gelatin and healing amino acids. With the added collagen, this bone broth can protect and soothe the lining of the small intestines and can aid in managing IBS, Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis and leaky gut.

2. Bone Health: The boiled down cartilage in the broth is rich in calcium, magnesium, glucosamine, and other minerals. Together with the Further Food Collagen, this super combo of power nutrients can not only help reduce joint pain and inflammation but also plays an important role in healthy bone formation.

3. Gorgeous Skin: This collagen enhanced bone broth is rich in glycine which helps promote healthy and supple skin. Drink broth to reduce wrinkles? Why not!

DIY: Health Supportive Turkey Bone Broth

  • Prep Time:5 mins
  • Cook Time:5-20 hrs
  • Servings: 4

Ingredients

Turkey bones and body cavity (some bits of meat left on the bone is fine)

1 onion (chopped)

1-2 carrots (chopped)

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (or other vinegar)

1 tablespoon ginger (sliced)

2 cloves garlic (sliced)

4 scoops Further Food Collagen

Instructions

  1. Place all bones in a large stockpot or crock-pot and add enough water to submerge the bones.
  2. Add onion, carrots, vinegar, ginger, and garlic to pot. Add Further Food Collagen.
  3. Bring to a boil and remove foam that rises to the top with a spoon.
  4. Reduce heat to lowest setting, cover and simmer for 5-20 hours. The longer it’s cooked, the more rich and flavorful it will be. I generally simmer for 8-10 hours.
  5. When done, remove the bones and and strain the stock into a large bowl/pot to cool.
  6. When cooled, divide into small jars or containers and store in the freezer or refrigerator.

 

The broth can be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days or frozen for up to 6 months. It’s great to have on hand for use as a soup base (I use it as the base for my easy buckwheat ramen noodles).

    Just a note, this is listed as good for those with Fructose malabsorption, we can’t have onion or garlic.
    I think it was put in that category by mistake.

      Thank you Wendy for letting us know. We have adjusted the recipe accordingly. This Bone Broth can be made without onion or garlic and it will be just as nutritious and delicious. Happy Thanksgiving!

    I am recovering from major hip surgery (a Periacetabular Osteotomoy + Scope, to be specific). My ability to get off crutches and walk again correlates directly with the healing of the fractured bone. Further Food’s bone broth has helped me accelerate the bone healing – to move from two crutches to one…and eventually a cane and then walking! Thank you for this calcium-packed remedy. Just what the doctor ordered!
