What to do with that pile of leftover turkey bones? Turkey Stew!

I. love. STEW. SOUP.  Whatever you want to call it, nothing is better in the winter.  Here's what to do with that big pile of nasty turkey bones and stuff. 
I had a 21 lb bird.  Take the carcass and pick off most of the skin, or what's left, and any small bones that are loose and throw that gunk away. 

Here's what you need for the stock:
Bird carcass
1 T. Curry powder
Salt to taste-I use sea salt
2 boxes of chicken stock
Enough water to cover the bird 3/4 the way up

Here's what you add to the stock:
Any veggies you wish (I used potatoes, carrots, celery)
Rosemary and sage.
2 bags of the Yellow Saffron rice you can get at the grocery store
2 c. orzo

You'll need a pot large enough to hold the bird, plus enough water and stock to cover the bird 3/4 of the way up.  I used a large canning pot. Add as much salt as you wish. 
Bring to a boil, then turn to low and cook overnight, or about 8 hours.  Let it cool long enough to remove the bones and other yucky stuff you don't want, leaving the meat.  Add the rest of the ingredients, bring back to a boil, then cook on low for 4 hours.  Get ready to stuff yourself for several days.  Serve it up with some habenero corn bread.
