Giblet Stock

Making your own turkey giblet stock is very easy and well worth doing.  If you’re going to use this with Christmas or Thanksgiving lunch or dinner, this is something that you can easily prepare a day ahead, ready for use on the big day. 

You will need:

The turkey giblets

1 onion, sliced in half

1 carrot, sliced in half lengthways

A few parsley stalks

1 celery stalk, plus a few leaves

1 bay leaf

6 whole black peppercorns


900 ml (about 1-1/2 pints or 32 fl oz) water


Wash the giblets and put them in a saucepan with the halved onion.  Cover with water and bring up to simmering point. 

Remove any surface scum with a draining spoon then add the remaining ingredients. 

Half cover the pan with a lid then simmer for 1-1/2 to 2 hours. 

Strain the stock, allow to cool and store, covered, in the fridge.
