Roasted Bone Broth/Stock


Kathryn's Roasted Turkey, Chicken, or Beef/Veggie Bone Broth/Stock

By Kathryn


Ingredients...
Water to about fill huge stock pot (mine is about 20 qts.)
6 carrots, halved
4 ribs celery, halved
2 large onions, halved
4 cloves garlic,thickly sliced
Chives, to taste
2 bay leaves
About 6 whole peppercorns
Red pepper flakes, to taste
Re-Roasted Turkey, Chicken or Beef Bones/Carcass

....Roast Turkey, Chicken or chunk of beef with bones, as usual in oven, picked all the meat off well, use the meat for other use ...

Put all of the carcass/bones and  remains back into the roast pan, skin and all, and roast again in oven until well-browned, at least 2+ hours. It get's very brown!.... Brown = flavor!

When browned, place in a huge stock pot (mine was at least 20 quarts) along with water and remaining ingredients. Simmer for a several hours until carcass appears clean and all the browned areas are gone. The Brown means flavor and it is now in the liquid!.. Drain well through a cheesecloth and pour into containers that can go into the freezer. Make sure to mark these well so you will know what they are when you need them. I got about 24 pints of wonderful bone broth to use in my recipes. Enjoy!

*NOTE: This would be great done with any bones, beef, deer, or pork.... and just well-roasted and made like above...mmm!

*Another perk to this recipe is that it has no preservatives, like MSG....and a GREAT money saver!...and all the benefit from a great bone broth..... and that is AWESOME!!!

~ "Creamy Garlic Pepperoni and Mushroom"



Revised Recipe from Kathryn
"Creamy Garlic Pepperoni and Mushroom"

The Crust:
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
¾ cup almond flour
2 tbs cream cheese
1 egg
Garlic powder

I just used my food processor .... Here is how...

I put my shredded cheese (I used cheddar/Jack mixture), almond flour and garlic into the bowl of the processor... Pulsed until mixture resembled crumbs.... Put in the warmed cream cheese (I warmed it by setting it on the stovetop while the oven was warming) and egg.. Pulsed to combine....then, with a rubber spatula ...gather it into a ball, placed onto a greased piece of parchment....placed another piece on top and with a rolling pin, rolled it out to a this round.... Then removed the top parchment and slid the crust onto my baking stone or cookie sheet...Dock the crust by, taking a fork and poking throughout the crust to prevent bubbles.... and baked as directed.... 400 degrees for 12-14 minutes. Watch for bubbles and POP if they appear.

Toppings:

Make a garlic cream sauce, mix together...
4 oz. warmed cream cheese
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. black pepper
...spread onto cooked crust, evenly

Then top with...

1/2 cup thinly sliced fresh mushrooms
20 or so pepperoni slices
4 oz. grated cheese
2 Tbsp. chopped green onions

Then, topped it with a garlic cream cheese mixture, sliced mushrooms, pepperoni, cheese and green onions...baked again for about 5 minutes, broiling for the last minute.... Cut into 6 slices....easy to pick up!.... Yum!
