Turkey Bouillon Cubes

These bouillon cubes are the ultimate convenience: Pop one out anytime you need a quick flavor boost in a soup, sauce or braise. If you don’t have a turkey carcass, use two roast chicken carcasses. If you don’t have parsley stems, use any other herb stems you have, or simply use 1/4 cup parsley leaves.
