Things have been busy here - as they often are during the summer for many of us. One thing I've done this summer is make a big turkey dinner. Every year in November, we buy two turkeys; one for the freezer and one to cook for Thanksgiving. Finally, I got tired of having my freezer half full of turkey!
Dinner was delicious, and now we have enough turkey to last for weeks. Yum.
I'm most pleased, though, by making the stock, as it's something I've wanted to do for ages, but my ex didn't like the idea of. I simmered the turkey carcass with onions, garlic, celery and carrots. The broth is tasty, light and I can't wait to cook with it. What I've done, though is put it into the freezer, so that it lasts.
I love these square ice cube makers. Once the stock is frozen into cubes, I'll put them into a bag and then I can just toss a couple cubes into whatever needs stock!
