Pat turkey parts dry with clean paper towels.

Over medium-high heat, heat oil in a 5-quart saucepan or Dutch oven. In 2 to 3 batches, brown turkey parts on all sides. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon and reserve in a large bowl.

Add celery, carrots, onion and garlic to pan and sauté until onion is tender, about 3-5 minutes.

Return turkey parts to pan. Add water and bring mixture to a boil. Skim foam from surface.

Add remaining ingredients. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 1 hour or until turkey pieces are tender.

Lift out turkey pieces with a slotted spoon. Strain stock through a sieve lined with 1 or 2 layers of cheesecloth. Discard vegetables and peppercorns.

Skim off fat. Use a metal spoon to ladle the fat off the top or chill stock and remove solidified fat layer.

When turkey is cool enough to handle, remove meat from bones. Discard skin and bones. Reserve meat for future use.

Stock may be used at once or stored in a closed container in the refrigerator 1 to 2 days; or stored in freezer up to 6 months.

** NOTE: A leftover turkey carcass may be substituted for turkey pieces.

Using up turkey parts from Thanksgiving!
I am also cooking this recipe as I'm typing. All the steps up to the "simmer for an hour" step have been completed and are really easy. It smells really good in here so far. I've actually cut the recipe to about a third since I don't have 2 full pounds of turkey parts. I just need a bit of stock for a turkey soup recipe I'll be making for dinner. I'll post again when it's all done.
