Soup (Serves 20)
Did you ever look at the turkey carcass and wonder what to do with
it? Well, here is the perfect tasty answer. If the carcass
is less than from a 20 pound turkey, just adjust the ingredients.
Remember portions of soup freeze extremely well. Defrost and heat
in your microwave!
1 carcass of a 20 pound roasted turkey
Note: This soup freezes very well.
Water to cover (about 6 quarts)
2 tablespoons salt
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup diced peeled carrots
1 cup chopped celery
2 tablespoons parsley flakes
2 cups uncooked noodles
1 cup frozen lima beans
1. Cut meat from turkey carcass, leaving bits that stick to the bones
and any stuffing that clings to inside cavity. Cut body cavity
in half lengthwise through ribs.
2. Place bones in large kettle; cover with water. Add salt and
pepper. Cover and simmer 2 hours.
3. Remove bones from broth. When bones are cool, pick off pieces
of turkey meat; return meat to broth. Add onion, carrots, celery
and parsley; simmer 20 minutes.
4. Add noodles and lima beans and continue simmering about 20 minutes,
until noodles are tender.
