In a large stockpot, combine the turkey bones, water, broth and quartered onion. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 1 hour.

Strain the mixture, discarding the bones and onion. Chill the liquid in the refrigerator‚¬â€ overnight, if possible‚¬â€ and skim off the fat from the broth's surface. Return the liquid to the stockpot.
