TURKEY BROTH

In a 5-quart saucepan combine wings, cold water, onion wedges, carrot chunks, bay leaf, peppercorns and broth or bouillon. Bring to a boil over high heat. Skim off any foam. Reduce heat, cover and simmer mixture for 1 to 1-1/4 hours, or until wings are tender.

Remove turkey from cooking liquid and allow to cool. Remove poultry from bones, discard skin and bones. Cube poultry; cover and refrigerate.

Strain broth. Discard seasoning, vegetables and spices. Skim off any remaining fat. Return broth to saucepan.
