Bone Broth from Turkey?

This is something my Mom has made for as long as I can remember. Long before Paleo or Whole 30. It was frugal cooking for poor people. After cutting all of the easily carved meat from your turkey, put the carcass into a large pot with some water and bring to the boil. Turn it down, put the lid on and let it work its magic. After a couple of hours or so, the slivers of meat will fall off the bones.

Strain the bone broth into a basin and let it cool. When it's cold, the fat will congeal on the surface. Unless you're buying super high quality organic turkey the fat is probably best skimmed off and discarded.

I like to gather all the bits of meat (and I do leave a lot of meat on the bones for this purpose) then chop them into bite sized pieces. I add those back to the broth along with sliced onions, carrots, celery and a can of diced tomatoes. Simmer the mixture until the veggies are cooked to taste and you have what I think is the most wonderful soup ever.
