|6 pounds||Chicken bones or wings; coarsely chopped|
|1 large||Onion; coarsely chopped|
|1 small||Carrot; coarsely chopped|
|1 small||Celery rib; coarsely chopped|
|1||Garlic head; halved crosswise|
|2||Sprigs fresh thyme|
|2||Sprigs fresh flat-leaf parsley|
|1 teaspoon||Whole black peppercorns|
|1||Dried bay leaf|
Place the chicken bones in a large stockpot, and add enough cold water to cover by 2 inches. Bring the liquid to a boil over medium-high heat, skimming off any foam that rises to the surface. Add remaining ingredients.
Reduce heat to low, and gently simmer stock, uncovered, until it is very flavorful, at least 6 hours.
Set a sieve over a large bowl; strain stock. Let cool completely. Skim and discard the clear yellow fat that rises to the surface. (You may prepare turkey stock up to 4 days ahead, and store, refrigerated, in an airtight container, or freeze up to 3 months.) Makes about 2½ quarts.
