Did you save your turkey carcass? You better hope so, because that’s the real trick to making great turkey soup. If you’re like me, you look forward to turkey soup far more than the actual turkey itself, which is too often not the star of Thanksgiving dinner.
Here are some good turkey soup recipes for you:
Put chicken broth, turkey, onion halves, carrot halves, 1 celery stalk, and 1 bay leaf in a large stock pot. Bring to a boil, then simmer about 1 1/2 hours. Finely dice the remaining onion, carrot and celery and reserve.
A simple homemade turkey soup that is chock full of garlic and cozy, soothing vegetables to ease the transition from winter into spring.
Every Thanksgiving my mother takes what’s left of the turkey carcass and makes a delicious turkey soup that we enjoy for days.
I have been making this soup for about 20 years now. I have been known to “claim” the carcass at TG dinner so that I can make this soup. It definitely is worth the work.
