Turkey Stock

Rated as 4.22 out of 5 Stars

"Make a great stock with the carcass and then create wonderful soups. The recipe is the basic stock recipe my great grandma used and her mother before her. Once you have a basic stock you can add leftovers, use it to cook rice, make a soup with dumplings, the uses are endless. Hot stock with a few veggies and alphabet pasta is great after school warm-up. I have soup made in the fridge so hubby can snack on it instead of junk."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Combine turkey carcass, onions, carrots, celery, green bell pepper, garlic, chicken bouillon cubes, peppercorns, and bay leaves in a stockpot; pour in enough water to cover. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until flavors blend, about 1 hour. Remove stockpot from heat and let sit for 15 minutes. Strain stock through a cheese cloth and discard solids.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • I keep ends of root veggies, tops of the peppers, and use them for the meat stock when I make soup from the Sunday roast. Leaving the skin on the onion will darken the stock and add more taste. I use roasted peppers and whole roasted garlic.

Though this is a good recipe, I cook it for a lot longer...4 hours! I also added a tbsp. of dried parsley and thyme, plus salt and pepper. I don't use a lot of salt as that can be added in whe...

Horribly bland. A recipe does not deserve 4-5 stars if the directions say to simmer 1 hour but everyone who succeeds at making it simmers it for 4 hours. I added more like 10 bouillon cubes and...
