Isn't that a gorgeous picture? Please don't throw away your turkey carcass when you're finished picking all the turkey off the bones for leftovers. If you want the easy way of making turkey stock, here you go. Let the crockpot do the work for you. Place the turkey carcass, any onion peelings or celery scraps you have left from making your dressing or stuffing, a bay leaf, a teaspoon or so of pepper corns and enough water to reach almost to the top of the stock ingredients in a crock pot and set to low. Cover and let the crock pot do the work.
Here's mine right before I put the lid on the pot.
My batch simmered on low for about 12 hours. Here is is the next morning.
Remove the large pieces with tongs and let stock cool. Strain through a cheesecloth or a fine mesh sieve. Now you're ready to make gumbo, turkey soup or freeze for use later.
