    Sherri Dodsworth's Note:

    Homemade stock is so much better than canned and wonderful to have on hand to throw together a quick bowl of soup. Your frugal side will enjoy using every last little bit of the bird. I keep a plastic bag in my freezer where I collect onion, celery and carrot trimmings (cleaned) to add to the stock pot next time I have a carcass on hand.

      Very easy - I cooked mine in a large pressure cooker for 1.5 hours. Use coffee filter in strainer to strain more completely. Can hardly wait to make soup. Pat

      I hadn't considered using the leftover dressing to make my stock. It was a perfect addition, and the house smelled wonderful while this was simmering. I used fresh thyme from my garden and also added the last of the parsley before our first snow tonight. I sampled this after straining and found the flavor to be perfect. I can't wait to use it in our turkey noodle soup tonight.
