    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Roasting/browning the turkey bones and vegetables firstly in the oven will create a more intense deep rich stock I would not even think of making stock without using this method and you will see the difference for yourself after you try this stock --- I use this stock in so many recipes I even make gravy with it and you will use this for so many things also, it is wonderful to have handy in the freezer, to thaw just microwave for a couple of minutes or refrigerate overnight -- serving amounts are listed for a 12-13 pound turkey and about 4 quarts of water, you may use a larger turkey with more water just make certain to use enough water to cover the carcass and veggies --- if possible don't discard all the extra bones from the legs, thighs and wings and add into the pot along with the carcass the more bones the better!

      I made this stock right after Christmas, could not pass up the inexpensive turkeys. I like to use as much of everything that I can. When I came across your recipe I thought that is so interesting, I never thought of roasting the caucus first with all the veggies the carcass looked so horrid next to all the veggies. After making the stock that smelled wonderful I froze it. So this is why the delay on the review. I just made cream of turnkey soup #115086 so here is my review. This is the best turkey stock that I have ever made. Bare with me most of you have seen Charlie and the Chocolate factory where little violet disobeys and chews the gum that has an entire dinner rolled up in one piece of chewing gum. Well this stock tastes like you are eating the entire Thanksgiving dinner rolled up in one, it has a wonderful roasted turkey flavor that is sublime! Recipe Zaar needs to add a sixth golden star for out of this world flavor this recipe deserves it.
