Turkey Soup recipe?
« Reply #-1 on: November 23, 2016, 04:13:16 PM »
I have never made turkey soup from scratch so I thought I would give it a try this year. Anyone have a good recipe they would like to share?

I roast the carcuss and then boil it for stock and add, noodles or rice or dumplings and bunch of veggies.  Tureky spices if you want.. a lil sage or a lil rosemary works.  .☆´¯`•.¸¸. ི♥ྀ.

Stock:
Pull most of the turkey meat from the carcass
Place the carcass in a LARGE pot with 12 cups of water, chopped onion, chopped celery, salt, pepper, and garlic
Bring the carcass to boil and turn down to a hard simmer
Simmer for about 45 minutes
Use a colander to separate the carcass, etc and the liquid
Place the liquid in a container in the refrigerator overnight
Pull the meat from the carcass and set aside overnight with the vegetables
The vegies will pretty much be mush

Turkey Noodle or Rice Vegetable Soup:
The turkey fat will have risen to the top and congealed
Remove the fat if desired
Put the turkey stock in a large soup pot
Add your favorite vegetables and then some ...
I like to add diced celery, onions, fresh sliced mushrooms, frozen peas and beans, a can of stewed tomatoes, zucchini, etc
Bring the vegies to a hard simmer and simmer for 30 minutes
Season with garlic, salt, pepper to taste
Add the pulled turkey from the carcass and I also add an ample amount of left over turkey as desired
Add diced potatoes and simmer for another 20 minutes until taters are al dante
Meanwhile, boil noodles or rice separately per directions
When soup is ready add noodles or rice to soup
Cook the noodles or rice separately so that they don't get soggy/mushy and will not absorb the soup liquid

Enjoy ... Bon appetit  8)

We do pretty much the same as Pam described.  We also like to add some cabbage and always add a little sage, thyme & rosemary and black pepper.   It's a great way to use that leftover turkey carcass.

As soon as the turkey is carved squirrel away the wings , & drumsticks if you can .
The darker meat tastes better in soups ( mine goes in gumbo,& jambalaya usually)
The carcass will make a second cook.
Don't skim the fat that's what tastes good.
Watch salt some brined or enhanced turkeys will provide all the salt the dish required.
Other wise Smoker Pete looks good!

As Pam mentioned (but didn't emphasize) ROAST THE CARCASS (and veggies) before you make your stock.  It adds great depth and taste.  Forty five minutes in a 400o oven is perfect.

Also, you can after you roast the carcass & veggies, cook the stock in a pressure cooker for 1 hour.  I love these pressure cooker recipes.  .☆´¯`•.¸¸. ི♥ྀ.

Not sure what you mean. Roast the carcass and cook the carcass and stock in the pressure cooker? Or after boiling it then put in the PC.?
