|The making of turkey stock|
Magical Turkey Broth
One Turkey Carcass
A Couple Sprigs of Fresh Thyme or 1 Tsp of Dried Thyme
A Couple of Sprigs of Parsley
2 Carrots, Chopped in Pieces
1 Onion, Quartered
1-2 Ribs of Celery, Cut into Pieces
1/4 Tsp of Pepper
1 Tsp of Salt, Optional (I don't add salt)
Dump everything is a large stockpot. Cover with water. Bring to a boil. Lower heat to a simmer. Simmer uncovered for one hour. Strain and then chill. Once chilled, skim the fat off of the top and use or freeze.
When I freeze broth or any other liquid. I place the filled bags piled on a cookie sheet until they are frozen. That way they are neat and tidy in my freezer.
The bottom line: Will I make this again? Yes, whenever I can talk someone out of the turkey carcass. I probably should not have posted this because now all of my friends will make their own broth.
