Don't Throw Away Your Turkey Carcass!

November 23 2022

Don't throw away the turkey bones after you've demolished your bird! Save them to make a fantastic turkey stock, which you can then use to flavor all sorts of soups and gravies. After you strain the stock, you can freeze it in small Tupperware tubs, or even in ice cube trays, very handy to have in the kitchen!
