The first time I made bone broth, using the leftover turkey carcass, I was hooked! It makes THE best soup you can imagine; you’ll never reach for the canned soup again! I’ve also used it to make chicken or turkey pot pie and replaces chicken stock in any recipe.
The day after Thanksgiving, I make turkey stock. The first few times I made this I used a large stock pot. It takes about 8 hours and the house smells of turkey all day (like that is a bad thing). I decided to try making this in an electric pressure cooker. This cut the cooking time in less than half!!
When I mention pressure cooker, people are either intrigued or are afraid. You you mention pressure cooker, most think about the big metal stove top pressure cookers that can be dangerous. The electric pressure cookers are a heck of a lot easier to use and much safer. They are available in most big-box stores and on-line retailers. We got ours from QVC (easy pay…yay!)
Now, you don’t have to wait until after Thanksgiving to make bone broth. If you eat as much chicken as I do, you have plenty of left-over bones. I simply save my chicken bones in a freezer bag, in the freezer. When I have enough, I make bone broth.
Let’s talk soup! Anyone that’s had my chicken soup has raved about it. I have to say, it’s damn good! It’s full of flavor from the bone broth, vegetables and the chicken. (Recipe soon).
Not only is bone broth very tasty, it’s good for you! See this article for some of the health benefits: https://www.louisehay.com/18-amazing-health-benefits-bone-broth
