Homemade Turkey Stock-Put Some "Stock" in This!
We try to do many things around the house foodwise ourselves. The reason is we know exactly what is in our food when we prepare it. When we have turkey, bone in chicken, or a whole chicken, we do a little happy dance because we are going to make broth or stock with it. We were given a turkey around Thanksgiving, and it was the same turkey I did the brine recipe with. So here is what you will need:
Roasting pan with adjustable heat setting or crock-pot
Carcass of a turkey-backbone, leg bone, etc.
1 gallon water
1/4 cup kosher salt
1 tbsp black pepper
1 tbsp rosemary
1 tbsp garlic powder
2 bay leaves
one whole onion
3 stalks of celery
1 cup carrots
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar (pulls marrow from bones)
1 sieve drainer
Place your carcass, water, and vegetables in roasting pan. Turn on roaster to 225 degrees. Place all your spices and mix well. Add your apple cider vinegar. Put top on roaster and cook for a very long time.
