Soup!

Postby tookalisten » Tue Dec 03, 2013 6:34 pm

Dont know why I never did this before; but it is the best soup I have ever made.

After everyone left on Thanksgiving, I put the turkey carcass and whatever meat was left on it and tossed it in my large stock pot and covered with water. Put on low/simmer and went to bed. I let it simmer all night and all morning.

The next afternoon, I poured it in a colander (saving all the liquid) and picked out the skin and bones.
Returned remainder back to the large pot with the liquid stock, and then added all my leftover vegetables from the Thanksgiving meal - blackeyed peas, mashed potatoes, corn, lima beans, green beans, etc - then chopped up a cabbage, added a large can of diced tomatoes, salt, pepper and let it simmer the rest of the evening and night.

We have eaten soup for the next 3 days and finally froze the remaining amount. Best soup ever!

I almost cant wait to cook another turkey.
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.

LOL I do that every year, too, Took! Down to the letting the carcass stew overnight! :wink: Delicious, yes! I even put some of the stuffing if I have it left over, along with what's left of the gravy and mashed potatoes! Always put in fresh onion, celery, carrots, and herbs, too. Fills the house with a wonderful aroma. 8) Kind of like what I do at Christmas, I make sure one of the holiday meals is a nice ham, then make pea soup with the bone, etc.! So, good!

Same here Alewife... Hambone and tattered remains of the ham still attached becomes Lentil Soup, Whole chickens and turkeys become soup all winter. Instead of onions this last time, I used leaks.... Made a big difference on the subtleness of onion that I normally use.

I did almost the exact same thing. It took me 5 days to eat all that soup and I had 4-5 bowls per day with Franks Red Hot sauce dribbled across the top of each bowl. Yum!

Could you upload the recipe for it? I really would love to try it!
To want to, is to be able to.
