Turkey Stock

So after you have stripped that turkey for all its got- why not get some more out of it?  This couldn't be simplier and you can use it for my leftover turkey chili recipe


  • Full turkey carcas- bones, skin, etc
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 large carrot
  • 2 ribs of celery
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 3 bay leaves
  • a couple springs of thyme and rosemary
  • about 10 whole peppercorns
  • water
  • salt

  1. Get a large soup/stock pot.  Break the turkey up so it will fit in the pot.
  2. Add all other ingredients.
  3. Fill the pot up with water.
  4. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer.
  5. Simmer for at least an hour skimming the fat off the top as you go.
  6. Let cool and see if you need to skim any more fat.
  7. Strain out into another large vessel (if you have cheese cloth I would use it here) then store accordingly.  You could even freeze it if you wanted.
