  • 1 turkey carcass for the purpose of this recipe I used a 6.5lb turkey breast
  • 1 cup baby carrots
  • 3 stalks celery sliced in 1-inch pieces
  • 1 onion quartered
  • ½ cup of sliced white mushrooms
  • 1 bunch Italian Flat Leaf Parsley
  • 8 Sage leaves on stem
  • 2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 16 cups water


  • Place the turkey carcass, veggies, herbs, and salt and pepper in a large stock pot. Pour 16 cups of water into the stock pot.
  • Bring to a boil on high for about 10 minutes then reduce to low and let simmer for 2 hours (or longer).
  • Strain the stock over a mesh strainer into a large bowl. Use stock immediately or freeze for another day.
