Home made stock

img_1473

Did you try making stock from your leftover turkey? Our stock from our gorgeous free range turkey turned out to be so good we had to buy another turkey, just to make more stock. Of course course we will enjoy good meals also, but can’t wait to have more of this stock. We add it to everything from our warming vegetable curries to stews and different soups. Home made stock contains loads of important minerals for your body and also very important gelatine and amino acids for collagen production for your skin, nails, hairs and joints. It is also good for the gut. It turns jelly-like when cooled, because of all the gelatine. Super healthy food.

All you need to do, is to place all the left over bones into a large saucepan, cover with water. Add an onion, chopped into quarters, and a carrot, chopped into large chunks, a few pepper corns, bay leaf and a drizzle of apple cider vinegar. Carefully bring to boil, and then simmer in low heat, very carefully, for a few hours. Pour through a sieve and cool.

Warm welcome to my blog. I’m Hanna, a nurse and also very passioned about healthy nutritious food and how it affects our overall health and wellbeing, both physical and mental. Eating right is the most important thing you can do to stay healthy. Not just cutting down sugar, grains and excess carbohydrates, but also choosing nutritious and good quality foods, such as good vegetables, berries, herbs and spices, is extremely important. I try not to forget stress management and healthy exercise either.
