We recently purchased a Standard Bronze Heritage Turkey from Carolina Bay Farms. This turkey was amazing in taste and flavor, so I just knew I’d be making this Turkey Bone Broth, determined to use the entire turkey and not waste any of it.
Turkey Bone Broth is made with the turkey carcass which contains a small amount of meat adhering to the bones. As with any stock, the bones are roasted first to improve the flavor of the bone broth. Bone broths are simmered for a very long period of time. This long cooking time helps to remove as many minerals and nutrients as possible from the bones.
What are the benefits of Turkey Bone Broth? Bone broths are extraordinarily rich in nutrients – particularly minerals and amino acids. Bone broths are a good source of amino acids – particularly arginine, glycine and proline. Glycine supports the bodies detoxification process and is used in the synthesis of hemoglobin, bile salts and other naturally-occurring chemicals within the body. Glycine also supports digestion and the secretion of gastric acids. Proline, especially when paired with vitamin C, supports good skin health. Bone broths are also rich in gelatin which improves collagen status, thus supporting skin health. (source: Nourished Kitchen)
