  • 1 turkey carcass from a roasted bird (it’s OK to have some meat and skin attached to the bones)
  • Turkey giblets
  • 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 cup parsley (1 small bunch)
  • 1 mandarin orange peel (orange peel or lemon peel works too)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 7 quarts filtered water


  1. Place the turkey carcass and giblets in a large stockpot. Add the onion, garlic, parsley, orange peel, and bay leaves, and cover with cold water.
  2. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer for 8-10 hours.

  3. Discard the solids and strain the broth through a fine-mesh strainer into a large container. Ladle the broth into mason jars. Once it’s cool, you’ll be able to remove the fat on the surface easily with a spoon. Enjoy and refrigerate or freeze the leftovers for later.
