Thanksgiving Leftovers: Turkey Carcass Stock

Did you use all your turkey stock on this big day for gravy and stuffing?  Now what to do when it's time to make the turkey-noodle soup....

Never fear.  See that turkey carcass there in the fridge?  Let's put it to good use.

Turkey Carcass Stock
Makes about 4 quarts.

Break the turkey carcass into 4 pieces and place in a large stockpot.  Cover with water.  Add fresh herbs (thyme, parsley, sage) and a couple of carrots and stalks of celery.  Let it simmer for about an hour. Probably won't need seasoning, but add salt and pepper if needed.

Strain and get that soup started....
