  • Place the carcass and bones into the instant pot.
  • Peel the onion and cut into quarters. Peel the garlic. Peel the celery and carrots and cut into chunks. Transfer all the veggies into the pot and add the rest of the ingredients apart from the salt. Give it a stir.
  • Lock the lid into its position and turn the steam vent to SEALING. Press MANUAL (pressure cooking on high) and adjust the time to 90 minutes.
  • Wait until the pressure is released naturally before opening the lid (recommended).
  • Optional: Add salt to your liking.


  1. You should be able to get this amount of bones from a 9-pound turkey (4 kg).
  2. Fresh Flat Leaf Parsley or thyme can be used instead of rosemary.
  3. 2 quarts = 8 cups of water.
  4. I stirred into ready-made stock 2 tablespoons of salt. This is completely optional and you can omit this or use as much as you like.
  5. This recipe was developed for a 6-quart (6-liter) instant pot.
  6. The overall time does not include time needed for the pot to come to pressure. This may vary but count with extra 15 minutes. I recommend waiting until the pressure is released naturally as there is no reason why you should release it quickly.
  7. This stock can be stored in the fridge (for 2-3 days) or freezer.
  8. If you are not sure/if you are looking for tips and advice, please read the whole post that contains more detailed information.
