What are your uses for homemade turkey stock?

Many years I just tossed the carcass, other years (including yesterday) I make stock. Using for soup, stew or to moisten other recipes are givens, but what else do you use the stock-of-gold for?

  1. I like to use stock to make rice in, instead of water.

    1. I make a lot of stock from only the carcass's. I reduce reduce reduce. I start with three gallons of rich stock and end up with about forty or so concentrated ice cubes of stock in Zip locks. Easier to keep in the freezer and always ready to add a 'flavor bomb'.

      1. Everything. To make rice/grains, to make sauces, to steam veggies, soups and stews, braises, gravies, to poach poultry, as the liquid in all sorts of savory recipes. We have stock in something almost every day.

        1. Soups, veloutes, risottos, sauces, etc. Basically use in place of anything I would use water on the stovetop. Make rice with it. Tons of uses.
