Turkey Stock problems...

truro | Jan 10, 2013 01:16 PM

Help! I just made turkey stock from leftover Christmas turkey and the flavour after simmering changed from delicious to almost inedible. My husband says that it tastes like bones and I find that it has a taste of liver... I have put it in the fridge to chill but I think that I may have to discard. I make my own stocks constantly and this is the first time that I have had this experience. I had the stock simmering for about 3.5 to 4 hours on a low simmer so perhaps I left it on too long? I had to run an errand for 20 minutes and in that time, the flavour went from a rich tasting stock to this unpleasant taste. I could tell something had changed the moment I stepped back into the house.

Has anyone ever had this experience before? Is there anything that I can do to salvage the stock or should I just cut my losses and chart it up to a new experience? Thanks.
