One of the amazing benefits of roasting a whole duck, chicken or turkey is that you have the bones remaining for a wonderfully rich and healthy homemade broth.

Featured Chef Carley Smith shares this Duck Broth recipe at just the right time. There’s not much better for a healthy gut/immune system and to fight colds and flu than a big batch of broth. One of Carley’s passions is to help people gain the knowledge necessary to build up immunity through eating nutrient rich, gut friendly foods.
