Cooking tip

For turkey stock, try this homemade recipe or use packaged stock: To make homemade turkey stock, add the leftover carcass from the turkey to large stockpot. Add 4 quarts of water, chopped onion, celery, carrots and garlic, bay leaf and fresh or dried parsley; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 1 hour. Strain stock.  Use stock to prepare Holiday Turkey Gumbo. Any leftover stock can be frozen for later use.
