I threw the spices that I had inserted into my turkey carcass into this mix as well, and it turned out wonderfully well. I strained it, then put it in the fridge for 24 hours to let the fat congeal on top. Then I scraped off all the fat and put the stock into ice cube trays and froze it. Once frozen, I threw it into ziplock bags...5-6 cubes = 1 cup, depending on the size of your ice cubes. I'd measure it the first time, then whenever you need a cup of stock, you'll know how many ice cubes to pull! Thats how I do my chicken, beef, seafood, and veggie stock, and it works great for me! No waste, no fat, and easy to do. Thanks for sharing.
Mirj- this was the perfect ending to the SuperBowl turkey.I ended up throwing the whole thing in an 8 qt stockpot, let it simmer all day on the stove and then strained it last night and refrigerated. I put the broth into 6- 1 qt containers and 4 1/2 qt containers. These will be perfect for making soups through the next few weeks. Today I am going to make Recipe #202923<br/>. to offset the 5 inches of snow we received overnight and it is still snowing. Made fror SoupFest2011
