- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 6
Get the most out of your turkey by using the bones to make a stock. It can kept in the freezer to be used in soups, risottos and more
- STEP 1
Put all the ingredients into a large stock pot or your biggest saucepan, and top up with 2 litres water. Add more water to cover all the ingredients if needed.
- STEP 2
Bring to a simmer over a high heat, skimming off any foam that appears on top of the liquid with a spoon. Reduce to a medium heat, then simmer, half covered, for 3 hrs – the stock will have reduced and concentrated its flavours. Or, if you prefer a lighter stock, cover fully while simmering.
- STEP 3
Turn off the heat and leave to cool for a few minutes, then carefully strain into a container or bowl to cool completely. Will keep in the fridge for a week and for three months in the freezer.
