Slow Cooker Turkey Stock


Servings: Makes about 3 pints (that's 48 fl oz).

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 8 hours

  • Carcass from a 12-14 lb roast turkey (That's about 2.5 lbs of bones and such by weight.)
  • 72 fluid oz water (That's 9 cups.)
  • 1 yellow onion A small one; quartered.
  • 2 carrots Cut into chunks.
  • 2 celery stalks Cut into chucks (you'll want the leaves as well).
  • Special Equipment

  • 4.5 quart slow cooker
  • cheesecloth

  • Instructions: Add the turkey carcass and water to the slow cooker. Set your Crock Pot to low, cover and let it go for 6 hours. Add onion, carrots, and celery and continue cooking on low for 2 more hours. At the end of the slow cook, remove all the large bits with a slotted spoon and discard (or, give to the dog- but not the onion or the bones; that isn't good for 'em). Strain liquid thru two layers of cheesecloth and allow to come to room temperature. Refrigerate overnight and skim off any unwanted fat and/or gunk that floated to the top. Keep refrigerated and use within a couple of days, or portion out appropriately to freeze.
