What to do with your turkey bones – make soup!

I utilize this super easy soup strategy every Thanksgiving. Homemade broth is rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and other trace minerals. The minerals in broth are easily absorbed by the body. You’ll get more mileage out of your turkey this year with this soup!

Leftover Turkey Slow Cooker Soup
                        Carcass, wings & bones of 1 leftover turkey
   2                    stalks celery with leaves
   2                    carrots, cut in chunks
   2                    bay leaves
                        A splash of apple cider vinegar
                        The next day, place the broth in
                        — a large soup pot and bring slowly to the boil.
                        Add:
   1 1/2  cup           chopped celery
   1 1/2  cup           chopped carrots
     1/2  cup           chopped parsley

1. Remove all meat from the bones and carcass and refrigerate. Break bones
and carcass up into pieces small enough to fit into a 4 or 5 quart slow
cooker. Add remaining ingredients and 3 quarts of water. Cover and simmer on
the low setting for 24 hours. Strain broth, and refrigerate overnight in a
clean bowl. Discard vegetables and bones.

2. Simmer for 15 minutes. Add 3/4 cup parsley and simmer for another 15
minutes or so. Salt and pepper to taste and add 1 cup noodles or other small
soup pasta. Simmer until the pasta and vegetables are tender. Add 1 to 2
cups leftover turkey (or however much you need to get rid of).
