I think I'm just going to own up to my own cluelessness right now. I put my turkey carcass in a pot of water and cooked it all day. Removed the meat and bones. I didn't know what to do w/ it at that point, so I put the pot of liquid in the fridge. (after skimming off a bunch of fat) I just got it out and it is a big pot of gelatin basically. Like cold gravy.<br><br>
Tell me what I did, and what I should do with it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

Suunds like you did it right. The more gelatin-y, the better.<br><br>
When mine is done (it's still in the crock pot) I am going to freeze it in portions to add to make soups, gravy, cook rice in, etc., just as I do with chicken stock/broth.<br><br>
When you heat it, it will thin out.

Oh, thank goodness. DS and I were just staring at it. He recently had jello for the first time at preschool, so he said "Turkey jello!!". That is exactly what it looks like.<br><br>
I have way more than I need right now. Freezing it seems like a good option. What is the best way to do it?

Broth jello is good! That is a sign of a great broth. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Eat">
