I also started my Turkey Frame Soup. I threw the turkey frame, neck, skin, and scraps into my stockpot added an onion, parsley, a carrot and a stalk of celery. Brought this to a boil and reduced the heat to low. I will let it simmer while we have dinner and I make the Tiramisu and then it will go outside (It is in the 30's here) to cool off and be continued tomorrow.
This morning I brought in the stock.
And removed all the meat from the bones.
I ended up with quite a bit of meat from those scraps.
I strained the broth through a fine sieve lined with cheesecloth.
8 cups for the soup and the rest to use while cooking this week.
Chop 3 cups of vegetables of your choice.
Today I am using onions, carrots and celery because that is what I have on hand.
In the past, I have used broccoli or cauliflower, mushroom and parsnips.
Whatever vegetables you like and have on hand are fine.
You will need a can of diced tomatoes
And a couple of handfuls of noodles.
Place broth in a soup pot.
Add bouillon cubes, basil, tomatoes with their juice and vegetables.
Bring to boil and let cook for 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
Throw in a couple of handfuls of noodles and boil another 10 minutes.
Turn heat to low, add turkey and heat through.
