After you’ve carved off the great majority of meat from your holiday turkey, you can still make a delicious, light stock from the rest!



Place turkey carcass in a large soup pot and add the water. Add onions, celery, carrots and herbs. Bring pot to a simmer, skimming any foam that rises to the surface, and cook for 1 hour.

Strain stock, pressing hard on meat and vegetables to squeeze out the juices. Season with salt and pepper.


I like to use fresh herbs in my stock. If you prefer to use dried herbs, which are perfectly fine, use the following increments: 1 tablespoon each dried sage, rosemary and thyme plus 2 sprigs fresh parsley.
