Poultry Bone Broth Soup: An authentic soup with rich bone broth, savory meat, & loaded with colorful vegetables. Even in the warmer months your body will thank you for eating this soup!
This Poultry Bone Broth Soup is the best full flavored soup I’ve ever made. My husband, Fred, and my sons comment each time it’s served about how incredibly good it is. I especially love how healing it is for the gut. The meat, collagen, and bone broth nourish the body, and the cooked vegetables give the digestive tract a chance to easily digest all the nutrients. Hippocrates said, “All disease begins in the gut.” – and I’m a firm believer in this wise saying.
Our family ate healing soups for 10 weeks this spring and everyone noticed improvements in our health. For example, Fred has had 6 to 8 weeks of terrible seasonal allergies for the past 3+ decades, requiring round-the-clock antihistamine medications. He dreads pumping these drugs into his body, but couldn’t function without them. This year, he took NO pills for his allergies!! The only change was our diet. Poultry Bone Broth Soup was a weekly staple: during his healing process, he ate it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
This Poultry Bone Broth Soup was made from a small, home-raised heritage turkey. The meat is very lean and dense but has amazing flavor. We love the soups made with these birds. In fact, our youngest son, Owen, requests Poultry Bone Broth Soup regularly. I have a hard time duplicating it exactly each time it’s prepared because I use what is on hand. Owen would prefer that I write everything down so there are no variations, but that isn’t my personality. I added the game meat to this batch since there wasn’t enough meat on the small bird. There are a few things that are exact, but the vegetable amounts are to your liking. If I get too many cut up vegetables, I add more water and continue to simmer. When I use the Spiralizer, I keep the ends of the vegetables in a baggie, either in the refrigerator or freezer until the next time I make a soup, then throw them in so nothing goes to waste. Same goes for the broccoli stalks and the like.
I make extra large batches of Poultry Bone Broth Soup for several meals and freeze for later. It stores well in half gallon mason jars.

Night Before Instructions
Combine first 5 ingredients into a large stock pot, cover and simmer 15 to 40 hrs. Add more water as needed. I often plan my soups for a 24 hour time frame.
Soak 2 cups white navy beans in filtered water with 1 tbls. baking soda for 8 hrs or over night. Rinse well and add to soup after all the bones are removed with the Mid-afternoon ingredients.
Remove all bones by either a slotted scoop or by straining broth into a large bowl. Return broth to stock pot and pick all the meat and cartilage from the bones. I Do Not skim any fat from my soups, as they are home raised or wild meats, and the studies now show that consumed animal fat does not create humans to be fat. The fat does nourish the brain and body, along with providing that satisfied feeling of goodness.
Mid Afternoon Instructions
Brown Stew Meat in heavy skillet with 1/8 cup lard or tallow, while you are cutting up the vegetables. (This meat was actually cut into steaks, so I browned it and then cut into pieces. Because it is wild game, it is very lean and why I add fat to the skillet for browning.) Add to broth.
Rinse and cut up vegetables. Add everything to stock pot. Add more water to your liking, cover and simmer 2 - 4hrs.
