Ingredients

  • 1 turkey carcass
  • 4 litres of water
  • 1 onion chopped in half
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • 1 carrot chopped in half
  • 10 peppercorns
  • 2 sprigs of parsley and thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Place the turkey carcass in a large stockpot or dutch oven. Break down the carcass if necessary to fit into the pot. Add water, herbs and vegetables and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and allow to simmer for 2 hours.
  2. When broth is done, strain it and remove any turkey pieces that can be chopped and put back into the soup. I usually strain the broth once with a colander to remove the big pieces, then a second time through a cheesecloth for a clear broth. Season to taste.
  3. Keep broth refrigerated until ready to use.
