After I removed the breasts from the bone, leaving the little bits of meat and skin on it that stuck, I set it back in the slow cooker with all of the tasty juices that were released while the turkey was cooking. After that, I just add veggies and herbs to the crock, then fill it to the top with water, put on the lid, and set it to low.
Twenty-four hours later, I was rewarded with a dark, rich broth that would become the base of our soup. Watch for that recipe coming soon, but until then—don't throw away those bones because it's ridiculously easy to make stock and bone broth in a slow cooker.
