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).

I’m thrilled to welcome you to Further Food.
I started Further Food because I believe in the power of food - to nourish, to prevent disease. But... what happens when we get sick with a chronic illness? Or when someone we love gets diagnosed? How can food and diet changes help the healing process? Help better manage symptoms - naturally?
These were the questions I was struggling with when I started Further Food.
Last year, my father was diagnosed with diabetes II. We were shocked because my mother cooks very healthfully. But my dad sneaks in a lot of processed, unhealthy foods while he was on the road, which is much of the time.  Sound familiar?
Around the same time, one of my best friends was struggling with IBS and another was going through a bad Ulcerative Colitis flare. I wanted to help, but didn't know how. So I turned to the internet to do research. But what I found was scattered, disorganized, and often depressing.  I got sucked into these forums, but couldn't easily find the information I was looking for. And that's when I thought  - there must be a better way to help people discover how to use food to combat various aliments...in an easy-to-use, beautiful, and fun way!
And that's how Further Food was born. In my research, I have helped my dad change his diet. He is now 15 lbs lighter, has cut back on processed foods, and decreased his total daily carbs. The journey isn't over, but he's doing so much better! #winningdad. I've showed him Tiffany's inspiring story of how she reversed her diabetes and shared her "Phase I" meal plan with him.  My friend has changed her diet to dramatically to reduce her IBS symptoms, and I have recently introduced her to the FODMAP diet - one that I discovered from the contributors on Further Food!  With my urging, my other friend with Ulcerative Colitis, tried going gluten-free and found that his 'pain-level' dramatically reduced within a week of making the dietary changes!
These powerful experiences, along with the stories I hear daily from Further Food's Health Heroes, inspire me to keep going further.  I am so deeply honored to be spear-heading this important work of using crowd-sourced data to find food-based solutions for a variety of health conditions. I believe in the wisdom of your stories, the strength of our community, and in the power of celebrating food as we get healthy together.
Help us spread the word about what we're doing, because we're just getting started!
 
Bio: I have dedicated my career to building and funding mission driven companies, specifically in the health and wellness space. Further Food is the culmination of my experiences, and reflects my belief that companies should do well and do good. I am also a certified yoga teacher, and love to surf, run, tango, travel and cook. My BA is from Brown University and my MPP from Harvard University.

    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!
