Turkey Stock

After carving the turkey for Thanksgiving, I knew I wanted to make some homemade turkey stock/bone broth.  I like to make soups (which is relatively obvious), but also like to use stock in my homemade gravy.  I had planned to make the stock in the slow cooker, but the carcass was a little larger than expected, so I used a big kettle on the top of the stovetop all afternoon on the day before Thanksgiving.

Turkey Stock

1 turkey carcass
1 onion, quartered
3-4 carrots (or the equivalent in baby carrots)
3 stalks celery, chopped
2-3 sprigs rosemary
2-3 sprigs thyme
1 sprig sage
1 Tbsp peppercorns
6-8 garlic cloves
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
Filtered cold water

Put all ingredients in a large stock pot.  Simmer for 6-8 hours.  When cool, strain and place in jars with about 1 inch of head space.  Put in the freezer.
