Homemade Turkey Stock


This is a staple in all of your soups and stews you can freeze and it will last for months! 

Ingredients ♥
1 turkey carcass
2 medium stalks celery, coarsely chopped
1 large carrot, coarsely chopped
1 medium yellow onion, quartered
1 medium bay leaf
1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
6 sprigs fresh thyme

Directions ♥

Break up carcass with a meat mallet or cleaver so it fits in a stockpot (at least 15 quarts), then add remaining ingredients. Add enough cold water to cover the bones by 2 inches and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, skimming occasionally, until turkey flavor comes through in the stock, about 2 to 3 hours.

Strain through a fine mesh strainer into large heatproof containers. Let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate or freeze.
 Note - You can to save space in the freezer use 1 gallon Ziploc bags  pour 2 cups into a quart ziplock bag, Continue until all of the stock is bagged and place flat in the freezer.
