Crockpot Turkey Broth

I cooked the bones from our 20# Thanksgiving turkey. I was able to freeze 20 cups of broth in 2 cup freezer bags. I had enough left over to make a big pot of soup, too! I let the bones cook all night long.
Crockpot Turkey Broth

3 -4 lbs chicken bones ( raw or cooked, boiling fowl or chicken or carcasses)
onions, chopped or quartered leave the skin on it gives nice color to the stock
celery, chopped
carrots, chopped
10 black peppercorns, approx
1 garlic clove ( to taste)
1 bay leaves
boiling water

Preheat the crock-pot on high. Try breaking up the bones as small as possible, place with all the other ingredients in the crock-pot. Cover with as much boiling water your crock-pot can take, I can add approx 6 cups of water.
Switch to LOW and cook for 12 or up to 24 hours. Strain, cool, skim of the fat, use the stock or freeze. If there is any meat on the bones, remove it and use for the soup or other dishes.
