We’ve all heard the saying, “One person’s trash is another person’s treasure.” Well, as it turns out, that saying applies to turkey bones too! If you’re a fashion-forward foodie with a taste for the divine, then get ready to turn leftover turkey bones into a show-stopping, nutrient-packed masterpiece: turkey bone broth!

How to Make Turkey Bone Broth: The Recipe That Will Slay

This superb turkey bone broth recipe hails from none other than our savior of sippable soups, NYT-bestselling author of the Bone Broth Diet book, Kellyann Petrucci M.S., N.D.

What you’ll need:

Your post-Thanksgiving turkey carcass
Enough purified water to just cover the bones
2 to 4 carrots, scrubbed and roughly chopped
3 to 4 stalks organic celery, including leafy part, roughly chopped
1 medium onion, cut into large chunks
Seasonings of choice to taste (i.e. salt, pepper, parsley, sage, turmeric, ginger, rosemary, parsley, bay leaves, etc.)


  1. Place your turkey carcass in a pot.
  2. Add onion, celery, carrots, and the seasonings of your choice.
  3. Cover your turkey bones with filtered water and simmer for at least 6 to 8 hours on the stovetop or in a slow cooker.
  4. When the broth is ready, strain it over a container to remove the bones and veggies. (You can use the veggies and any meat scraps on the bones for other recipes!)
  5. Enjoy warm and store in the fridge up to five days, or up to a year in the freezer.

Benefits that Will Leave You Breathless

Bone broth is not just a pretty face; it’s a nutritional powerhouse worthy of admiration. As Petrucci explains, “Bone broth is the best whole food source of collagen and has emerged as a superior whole food source of collagen because it’s lower in calories and saturated fats compared to other sources.” Prepare to have your mind blown!

This elixir of beauty and health is also loaded with essential vitamins and nutrients. According to Petrucci, it’s packed with calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and enough protein to make even the most devoted meat-lovers swoon.

Not only that, but bone broth has some secret superpowers too. It’s a master of disguise, providing the amino acid L-glutamine, known to support gut health. But wait, there’s more! It can also help quell inflammation, reduce migraines, and even keep your skin sizzling with moisture!
