2 pounds organic whole turkey (cut up)
1 large organic onion
2 organic carrots
4 stalks of organic celery
2 tablespoons organic apple cider vinegar
Optional: 1 bunch of organic parsley, 1 tablespoon of sea salt, 1 teaspoon peppercorns, additional herbs/spices to taste.

==== Bone broth cooking instructions
The first step in preparing to make broth is to gather high quality bones. Get Pastured and Grassfed Organic Bones.
Aim for 2 pounds of each different type of bone per gallon of water to make gelatinous broth. For extra gelling add 2-3 chicken feet per gallon of water (completely optional! - Some people don't enjoy the taste of them).
If using raw bones, it greatly improves the overall flavor to roast them in the oven first. Place bones in a roasting pan and roast for 60 minutes at 375 degrees.
After roasting, place the bones in a large stock pot. Pour high quality water over the bones and add the apple cider vinegar.
Let all bones sit for 20-30 minutes in the cool water. The apple cider vinegar helps make the nutrients in the bones more available.
Chop and add the vegetables (except the parsley and garlic, if using) to the pot. Add any salt, pepper, spices, or herbs, if desired.
Bring the bone broth to a boil. Once it has reached a running boil, reduce to a low simmer and simmer until done.
====Recommended Simmering Times:
Beef broth/stock: 48 hours
Chicken or poultry broth/stock: 24 hours
Fish broth: 8 hours
One can always simmer for less time, but this recommended times will produce a consistent, high quality product.
During the first several hours of simmering, remove any impurities that float to the surface.
During the last 60 minutes, add the garlic and parsley, if using.
Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
Strain using a fine metal strainer to remove all the bits of bone and vegetable.
When cool enough, store in glass jars in the fridge for up to 5-7 days, or freeze for later use.
When the broth is cooled in the fridge the fat will create a layer at the top. It is recommended to remove this fat layer as most people do not like the taste of it.
