I’m giving you two posts today. The first is how to make turkey stock from your leftover turkey carcass. The second, is a recipe for a leftover turkey and vegetable soup. Both are easy to make and super yummy.
This stock recipe can also be used for chicken carcass’s too. Either way, it’s fresh, homemade and can be frozen and used later for many things. I like to freeze my stock in ice cubes trays. This way I can use them in rice, quinoa, or other recipes which call for a little bit of stock.
2 carrots, rough chop
4 stalks of celery, rough chop
4 cloves of garlic
2 med. onions, quartered
2 parsnips, rough chop (optional)
salt, pepper, thyme
Put all in a large stock pot. Fill with water so that turkey is covered. Bring to boil and then simmer for 1 1/2 hours.
Strain the bones and veg.
Allow to cool (I put in the fridge overnight).
Strain the fat from the top of the stock.
Freeze or use right away.
