Turkey Stock: Make Your Own

Once you’ve harvested all the meat from your turkey for those fabulous leftover sandwiches, don’t you dare throw away the bones! Follow our five simple steps to make a savory turkey stock.

Step 1: Place leftover turkey bones (you can also include the backbone from our Citrus Grilled Turkey) in a large stockpot. 


Step 2: Add water to cover by 2 inches, and bring to a boil over high heat. 

Step 3: Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 2 hours, skimming off fat, if necessary. 

Step 4: Add 2 halved onions, 2 coarsely chopped carrots, 2 coarsely chopped celery stalks, 1 halved head of garlic, 1 bunch of fresh thyme, 10 whole peppercorns, and 2 bay leaves. Simmer 1 hour more. 

Step 5: Strain turkey stock through a fine-mesh sieve; discard vegetables and bones. Let cool completely. Refrigerate up to 3 days; freeze up to 6 months.
