Kitchen Tip -- Turkey Broth Tip

Read this today on Gooseberry Patch's Facebook page.  If you aren't a fan of GBP you should be!

Put a slow cooker to work turning the leftovers of the holiday bird into flavorful broth for soup. Place the bones in a large slow cooker; breaking to fit if necessary. Add onion, celery, carrots and enough water to fill 2/3 full. Cover and cook on low for about 10 hours. Strain broth with a colander and refrigerate or freeze. It'll be the best-tasting broth ever!

DO this with your chicken bones as well.

Having an electric roaster is a great blessing. Bake your turkey in it to free up the oven for other dishes. Then after making gray from the drippings, add the turkey carcas, 2 carrots, coarsely chopped; 1 onion, quartered; 2 coarsely chopped stalks of celery; 2 tsp. salt; 1/2 tsp. pepper; 2 tbsp. parsley and enough water to cover. Bake at 350 for about 2 hours. remove vegetables and bones (pick clean when cool enough to handle.) Refrigerate. When cool degrease. Pack into 2 cup portions and freeze to use later.
