Just Finished Making Turkey Stock This Morning

ChiliDude | Nov 23, 2012 08:17 AM

I never allow any family member to discard the turkey carcass(es) after Thankgiving dinner. If my daughter has prepared the dinner, I take the turkey carcass(es) home, sometimes there are 2 of them. We had a smaller number of family members than usual at our house yesterday. Our adult grandchildren were elsewhere with current friends of the opposite gender. My wife bought a turkey breast, and our neighbors who don't like meat from the drumsticks and thighs donated them to us.

After removing as much meat from the bones, more than an unbelievable amount of stock was produced in a 5 quart stock pot. Like 3 and half quarts of it. It's now cooling in our huge winter refrigerator not far from the 2 cars.

No seasoning was an ingredient in the stock. Why? Because I am forgetful. Seasonings are added when the stock is used to prepare something...usually risotto which great for using up leftovers. Some of the meat gleaned from the bones will be used in ramen noodle soup flavored with soy sauce and hot pepper sauce.


Buon appetito! Vivi, ama, ridi e mangia bene (Live, love, laugh an EAT WELL),
