Although we’ve never met in person, MJ from emjayandthem’s blog is one of my favourite people. She wrote this blog piece about her turkey epiphany, and I enjoyed it so much, I’m sharing it with you here.

In her case, it was a Thanksgiving turkey, but I saved it for Christmas. See if you can toss your turkey carcass carelessly in the green bin after you read it. She even gives you her turkey soup recipe.

  1. by the time I have boiled down my turkey carcass, there isn’t much left..I even crack most of the big bones so that the marrow can flavour my stock. I strain it through cheese cloth and a fine sieve. It makes the most wonderful stock ever, then I freeze it in 2 cup portions and always have my own stock for whatever recipe calls for it.
