Turkey soups often taste flat because the carcass sits too long in the refrigerator before being used for stock. To remedy this, after a turkey dinner, remove all the meat and package it separately. Refrigerate the carcass then make stock early the next day. The difference in taste is dramatic.

In large stockpot, combine water, turkey carcass, celery, carrots, onions, bay leaf, peppercorns and parsley; bring to boil. Skim off any foam. Reduce heat and simmer for 4 hours.

Strain through cheesecloth-lined sieve set over large bowl; let cool. Refrigerate until fat solidifies on surface, about 8 hours. Discard fat. Refrigerate stock in airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 4 months.
