Homemade Turkey or Chicken Stock

ILeftover whole turkey or chicken? Don't toss it!! Making homemade stock is really simple, and tastes 100 times better than the boxed stuff. Use it for soups or stews- tis' the season!

Homemade Turkey Stock

Keep remains of the turkey or chicken (bones, leftover meat scraps- all of it!). Place it in a LARGE soup pot.

If you roasted the meat with carrots or celery, throw that in there too! Or cut some up and throw it in for extra flavor. Add enough water to cover all the ingredients, plus a little more.

Simmer over low heat for about 2 hours. Using a strainer with a large pot underneath, pour the stock into the strainer (slowly) so you can discard the veggies and bones. That's it!

Store in the fridge for a few days.
