Turkey stock will offer a hearty flavor to soups and sauces. The stock can be prepared from the whole carcass or a commercial turkey base can be ordered from your purveyor. Turkey stock can be a healthy alternative to butter and cream.
Turkey stock made from the carcass will further extend the excellent food costs gained when using a whole turkey or turkey breast. For extra flavor, try preparing a stock from smoked turkey bones.
Turkey base will enrich gravy, pot pie, stuffings/dressings and a variety of entrees with the additional flavor of roasted turkey. For additional taste, turkey base can also be rubbed on turkey cutlets, chops or medallions prior to sauteing.
