Roasting Turkey Bones for Soup Stock

Turkey soup is a thrifty, nutritious way to take care of that left over bird. There's always something left! Remove the meat from the bones, as soon as possible to preserve the flavor and quality. Place the leftover bones on a cookie sheet, and roast them at 325 degrees F. for about 25 minutes. Remove from oven. Place the bones in a large pot, with about 2 - 3 gallons of water (depending on the size of the bird). Bring this to a boil, and then simmer for about 30 minutes. Strain the stock through a colander to separate from the bones. This will make absolutely, the best turkey stock for your soup!

I had made turkey soup stock many times but had never roasted the bones like this before this year. The stock came out a much darker brown, almost like beef stock and smelled WONDERFUL. I haven't had a chance to make soup with it yet but I imagine that it will be better than ever.

Did you mean to say 2 to 3 gallons? or should it be 2 to 3 pints? - as I will be giving this a go with our Christmas Turkey.

I'm pretty sure Sally meant gallons. But I'm curious how clean the bones must be before roasting and do you do the whole carcus which has lots of bits and pieces of turkey and fat and skin hanging on to it.

Hi Ruthie, just a few miles away! The bones can have as much meat on them as you want. Generally I remove all that is easy to collect and leave the rest for added flavor.

Hi neighbor: That'a what I did and I also throw in some onions, carrots, celery, bay leaves, thyme, half dozen peppercorns (no salt till I use the stock) and it is now simmering quietly on the stove with no cover so it cooks down and intensifies all the flavors. Bh the way, I have an added advantage, my husband smokes our turkey.

If you add a couple tablespoons of vinegar while making the stock, it will leach calcium from the bones, giving your stock the extra boost of a needed mineral, and no, you'll never taste the vinegar.
