Broth VS. Stock

This is a turkey stock recipe, but what’s the difference between turkey broth and turkey stock? The main difference is that stock is made from bones, while broth is made from meatier cuts. Because stock is made from the bones, in this case, the carcass of a roasted or smoked turkey, there’s more collagen in it, and the texture is richer. Both broth and stock include vegetables, but broths often include more vegetables to get more nutrients from them.

Ingredients

  • Cooking oil – Vegetable, olive oil, or avocado oils all work well.
  • Carrots – Peeled.
  • Onion – Just 1 yellow onion is fine.
  • Celery – A few stalks, leaves, and all.
  • Garlic – Fresh garlic cloves.
  • Parsley – A handful of fresh parsley, stems, and all.
  • Bay leaves – 2-3 dried bay leaves.
  • Peppercorns – About 1 tablespoon of black peppercorns.
  • Turkey carcass – Picked clean of meat and large hunks of fat/skin.

Chef Jenn’s Tips

Turkey stock is so rich, nutritious, and delicious. Never throw out the turkey carcass. Use it to make this amazing stock, and here are some tips to help your stock turn out perfectly every time.

  • For the best flavor, use celery hearts, leaves, and all. I save the celery hearts and pop them into the stock pot.
  • This recipe is perfect with smaller turkeys. If you have a big bird, more than about 16 pounds, consider using half the bones and make a second batch of stock with the other half of the bones.
  • Some turkey skin is fine in the broth, but too much will just make your broth oily. I usually leave the skin on the wings but discard the rest.
  • Your Instant Pot Dutch Oven will precisely control the heat, but you may have to turn it a bit higher to get the stock to a boil. It’ll simmer away nicely at 400-F.
  • Top off the pot with hot water about halfway through the cooking time.
  • Cool the cooked stock as quickly as possible. Remove it from the Dutch Oven as soon as it is safe to handle, strain it, and get it in the fridge to cool down.
  • Skim the fat off the top of the cooled turkey stock, if desired.

How To Use Turkey Stock

This easy turkey stock is so good in so many different kinds of dishes. I especially love it in this Turkey Pot Pie Soup. Add this keto turkey stock to stews, make the most amazing turkey gravy with it, or add a pinch of salt to a cupful of stock and drink it like bone broth.

Storage

IP Turkey Stock will keep in your fridge for 3-4 days, or freeze it.

My favorite way to freeze soups and stews is using Souper Cubes! These amazing freezer-safe cubes are perfect for freezing portions of all my favorite soups, stews, and other saucy meals. I freeze them then pop them out and put the rectangular frozen blocks into a zipper-top freezer bag. It makes storing them SOOOO much easier!

Where can you find these Soup Cubes? You can order them from Souper Cubes – how cool is this?
