I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! The WTF family sure did.
One thing I was really looking forward to this year was using the turkey carcass to make stock. I have been using our chicken backs this year to make stock & I thought the turkey would be fun to try.
Last week I got an email newsletter that included a recipe for Next-Day Turkey Soup. I did some tweaking to the recipe & this is what I came up with:
1 leftover turkey carcass
Salt & pepper to taste
Place carcass & water in stock pot & bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover & simmer for 1 1/2 hours. Remove carcass.
Remove meat from bones & set aside.
Discard bones, then strain broth & skim fat.
Add carrots, onion, celery, garlic, salt & pepper & simmer for 30-45 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
Add parsley & heat through.
The original recipe calls for adding cubed turkey meat but I left some meat on the carcass so there was no need to add extra.
