Turkey Stock

Ok you have stripped that turkey carcass and are looking at a rack of bones. Turkey soup is a great way to clean up things in the fridge. The vegetables for the broth were baby carrots and celery from last nights vegetable tray.

turkey carcass broken into small pieces
couple ribs celery including leaves
couple of carrots
spices and herbs available such as, parsley, herbs au provence, thyme, summer savory, whole peppercorns

Put all the above in large pot
Cover with water. Bring to boil. Simmer for 3-4 hours
Strain stock through colander into another large pot. I often do it a second time through a mesh strainer.
Bring back to boil cooking until reduced by 1/3
Allow to cool. Rerigerate overnight. The abundance of fat that has raised to the top can be easily strained off. Stock is ready now to be made into soup
