DH deep fried a turkey and I am making stock from the carcass. But, as I'm doing it, I'm wondering if it's ok? When you deep fry a turkey, the skin gets very deep, dark and crispy - just shy of being burned. The outside bones (like the wing tips and the tips of the leg bones) are deep, deep dark brown - again not burned but pretty darn close. Anyway, I'm wondering if it's ok to make stock with? I've started it and because the bones were so roasted, the stock is very dark already. I've only ever made stock from raw bones so I'm not sure how this works. TIA for any thoughts!

I would think it would be fine, except if you used vegetable oil or any unstable oils for frying, I would try not to include any parts that were too exposed to the oils since the oils will get very rancid, especially with the added cooking time in the stock.

I usually roast my bones at 375 to 400 degrees F before making my stock. It imparts a rich taste to the broth.
