It's been a couple of minutes, so let's remove this. That should have helped to extract some of the flavor out of the peppercorns, and out of the salt that we just added. Give everything a nice stir, scrape down the sides and make sure there's no onion or anything stuck to the sides. We're not looking to really brown anything off at this point, we're just looking to get some color in there. We're going to add about two quarts of water; at this point we're going to turn the heat up to high. We're going to add some water; that wasn't quite enough water. What you want to do is give it about three quarts of water, total. Two to three, depending on your turkey carcass and your pot. The idea here is to get enough water to submerge the turkey carcasses. It's actually one carcass, but it's two different pieces. You want to be very careful about doing this. I'm just going to take a pair of tongs and put my turkey carcasses in here. Keep in mind, this turkey is going to come out, so we're not going to eat it with the turkey in there like this. Some people will get freaked out by the notion of doing that. I'm also going to throw the neck in there too, because it will be great flavor, and it will actually work out really, really well. There's a little piece of trivia. There's the wishbone in the front. I can pull it out, and you and I can each grab a side, make a wish, and pull it and see what happens, but I'm not going to. We're waiting for this to hit a full boil with the lid off, because if the lid's on it won't really boil that well. When it hits a full boil, we're going to put the lid back on, and turn it down to a simmer. I'll come back to you when it is boiling on high.
