Turkey broth, like chicken broth, has so many varied uses. Every year after Thanksgiving, I use the turkey carcass to make this recipe.

Then I stash it in the freezer for future soup making. The flavor is very similar to chicken broth but just different enough to bring in a bit of new flavor to traditional soups.

You can use turkey broth in almost any recipe you would use chicken broth in. Just be warned, if your turkey is/was large, this will make a LOT of broth. Consider yourself warned…

Is This Different From Stock?

The terms “stock” and “broth” are used pretty interchangeably by most people. This would technically be a stock, which is made from bones. But I’ve always called it broth, so there ya have it.

How To Make Turkey Broth

  • Place all ingredient in a large stock pot and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to a simmer and continue to cook until the water is about a ¼ to ½ boiled down.
  • Strain the broth from everything else, cool and pour into food and freezer-safe containers for the freezer.
  • Use as you normally would use chicken broth.

What You’ll Need

  • 1 large turkey carcass
  • enough water to cover the carcass in a large pot
  • 2 tbsp. poultry seasoning
  • 2 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp. onion powder
  • 1 tbsp. rosemary
  • ½ lb. carrots (sliced)
  • 4 medium celery stalks 

Instant Pot Turkey Stock

If you prefer to make turkey broth in an Instant Pot, I can’t say I blame you. You won’t have to tend to it as much or keep an eye on it. And the best part is, that even though you’ll be making smaller amounts of broth, you won’t lose half the liquid in the cooking process.

To make this in an IP, simply place all the ingredients in the IP insert.

Secure the lid and close the vent.

Press the manual button and adjust time to 30 minutes at high pressure.

When done, allow for a natural release of about 30 more minutes.

Open the steam vent to release any remaining steam/pressure, and then carefully remove the lid.

Strain off the solids and store the broth in the fridge or freezer.

Can You Freeze Turkey Stock?

Yes you can! It will freeze well for up to 9 months.

How Long Does Turkey Broth Keep In The Fridge?

This will last in the fridge for up to 4 days.
