With Thanksgiving behind us…
…I’m sure your refrigerator is full of leftovers — just like mine!
And in an effort to have a “no waste Thanksgiving” homemade turkey stock is most definitely on the agenda.
Here’s how I’m doing it…
Homemade Turkey Stock
- leftover turkey bones, organs, and neck
- 4-5 whole onions, quartered
- 5-6 carrots, chopped
- 1 bunch celery, chopped
- water to cover
- handful sage
- handful thyme
1. In a large stock pot — or crock pot — add all of the ingredients and water to cover.
2. On low heat, simmer the pot for up to 24 hours.
3. Strain the broth through a fine mesh stieve.
4. Discard the bones and vegetables, reserve the liquid.
5. Freeze the broth, in usable proportions, for longer storage — up to 8 months - - or keep in the refrigerator – up to 7 days.
