Anytime you enjoy a whole roast turkey (or chicken) for dinner, you’ll end up with a carcass that’s ready to be turned into a delicious stock for noodle soup — pure comfort food.
From watching my mom, dad, and nana make turkey stock over the years, I know how easy it is to create. Just place all the ingredients in a very large pot and let it simmer for hours.
What happens if you don’t have a very large pot or dutch oven? You can use a slow cooker! Slow cookers are able to keep the stock at a low and even temperature — perfect for coaxing flavours from the bones, meat, vegetables, and seasonings.
It’s Easy to Make Turkey Stock in a Slow Cooker!
There’s no babysitting when making turkey stock in a slow cooker. Just dump the ingredients into the slow-cooker, then set it and fah-getta ‘bout it! It’ll take a minimum of 10 hours set on low heat to develop into a rich-tasting stock.
Stock Tip: Make sure you leave a little meat on the bones, you need both meat and bones to flavour a stock.
