Instant Pot Turkey Bone Broth

At the end of the big meal when the bird has been carved for leftovers, we’re left with what could become a source of literal Primal gold—the skin, bones and gristle of the carcass. With just 5 minutes of preparation and a mere 45 in the Instant Pot, you could enjoy several jars of prime turkey bone broth for future soups, stews, sauces or just plain sipping on a cold morning.

Plan now so you’ll be ready to take full advantage of tomorrow’s golden opportunity with this simple recipe.
