Golden Turkey Stock Recipe

  • 4 ½ pounds turkey wings, cut in half
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 large carrot, chopped
  • 1 large celery stalk, chopped
  • 6 fresh Italian parsley sprigs (leaves removed)
  • 1 fresh bay leaf
  • 6 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • ¼ tsp whole black pepper corns


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Arrange wings in large roasting pan.  Roast until deep brown, turning once, about 2 hours total.
  • Transfer wings to a large bowl. 
  • Spoon 3 TBSP of fat from the roasting pan into a large pot (reserve roasting pan.) 
  • Add onion, celery, and carrot to the pot.  Sauté over medium-high heat until vegetables are golden, about 20 minutes. 
  • Add turkey wings to the pot. 
  • Add 2 cups of water to the roasting pan; place over 2 burners and bring to boil, scraping up brown bits. 
  • Add liquid to the pot.  Add remaining ingredients to the pot and enough cold water to cover wings by 1 inch.
  • Bring water to a boil. 
  • Reduce to medium-low heat, simmer uncovered until stock is very flavorful and reduce to 7 ½ -8 cups, about 2 ½ hours. 
  • Strain stock into a large bowl. 
  • Cool for 1 hour, then chill until cold, about 3 hours. 
  • Skim off fat from surface before using.

I do not recommend store bought stock or broth unless it specifically says GLUTEN FREEBetter if all vegetables are organic and fresh.
