ingredients

1 turkey carcass
water
1 whole, peeled onion
1 carrot
1 stalk celery (make sure to use some of the celery leaves)

1 bay leaf
salt, to taste
4 whole peppercorns
fresh vegetables: diced carrots, diced celery, minced onion,
1 can diced tomatoes
1 diced potato

directions

Place the carcass in a very large stock or soup pot. Add water to cover the carcass, put in a whole, peeled onion, a carrot, a stalk or two of celery (make sure to use some of the celery leaves), a bay leaf, salt to taste and a few whole peppercorns. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for an hour or so.

Strain the liquid and place back in the pot. Discard all of the vegetables that were in the stock. Pick any meat left on the carcass and put back into the pot of broth. Add fresh vegetables: diced carrots, diced celery, minced onion, you can even add a can of diced tomatoes to the broth. A diced potato or two would be good. Let simmer until the vegetables are soft.

cook's notes

You could add cooked pasta (just about any shape of pasta would be good) to the cooked broth. Adjust the seasonings to taste. Enjoy. Just use whatever you have on hand for your soup and I am sure that it will be great. Jan

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
This recipe is easy and fast. I added the corn and the rice to make the soup more filling.
Thanks for the help!
