  • Turkey carcass and bones
  • 1 onion, cut into quarters
  • 2 stalks celery with leaves, cut into large chunks
  • 2 carrots, cut into large chunks
  • 5 whole peppercorns
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3 unpeeled garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar


  • Ideal slow cooker size: 6-Quart or larger.
  • Place the bones in your slow cooker. Try breaking them up as much as you can to fit.
  • Add the onion, celery, carrots, peppercorns, bay leave, garlic and vinegar.
  • Add water to 1-inch from the top of the crock. Cover and cook on LOW for at least 12 and up to 36 hours, adding water as necessary.
  • Let cool and then strain the broth.
  • Refrigerate overnight and skim off any unwanted fat that floated to the top.
  • Keep refrigerated and use within a few days, or portion out and freeze. I like to portion mine out in 2 cup amounts and place in zip lock bags that I lie flat on a plate and place in the freezer.

Recipe Notes

You can store your healthy homemade turkey broth in the refrigerator for a few days.
Or, portion it out and freeze it. I like to divide it into 2-cup portions that I place in zipper lock freezer bags. I lie them flat on a plate in the freezer until solid, so that they are easier to stack/store.
