Don't waste those Thanksgiving or Christmas turkey leftovers! Instant Pot Turkey Bone Broth is the easiest way to use that turkey carcass in a delicious, healthy broth. Ready to drink, make turkey soup, or use in rice, sauces, etc.
You should see my fridge right now: jar after jar of homemade bone broth! I've been playing with them in the Instant Pot because it's so easy! Beef marrow bones, pig feet, chicken feet, lamb and duck bones (what an amazing flavor they have!), leftover bones….
Turkey. What a beautiful flavor. It's great to be able to get a big turkey on sale for less than the price of a drive-thru meal, isn't it? And to be able to use the whole thing, without wasting any of it?
I've always enjoyed picking the meat off the turkey carcass. That dark meat around the bones has all the flavor!
And there's something primal about just getting in there with your hands and ripping the thing apart to get at the meat. I mean, it's not as intense as that seen from The Reverent where he's ripping into the buffalo in the snow by the fire with blood dripping down his face (it was on TV last night), but I think you know what I'm saying….
That was graphic.
…Anyways…. Here's a couple items to make this even easier:

Don't have an Instant Pot? You can still make this recipe old-school on the stove top, simmering for 8 hours. You may need to add water as a lot boils off this way. You know what? Maybe it's time you get your Instant Pot.Print
- 1/2 turkey carcass (use all bones, neck, and any pieces you wouldn't eat)
- 3–4 Bay leaves
- 1 tsp peppercorn
- (optional) vegetable scraps
- (optional) chicken bones & chicken feet
- salt to taste
- Put all ingredients into the Instant Pot and fill water to the 1/2 – 3/4 mark.
- Using the soup function or manual high-pressure function, program for 45 minutes.
- Once done, allow to naturally pressure release.
- Strain all solids out and add salt as needed.
- Drink daily for health benefits, or use with the rest of your leftovers in the Instant Pot Turkey Leftover Soup.
If you pick up that mesh basket (snap off the handles) and pot grippers, put all ingredients in the basket and use that in the Instant Pot, then when it's done, just pull the basket out with the handles. Done.
