When making turkey (chicken) soup, simmer the broken up carcass. tiny bits of meat left on the carving board, the wing tips and tail, in enough water to cover. Add a little celery, carrot, onion and a clove of garlic to the pot. Add a little salt and pepper.
Add a little vinegar to the water at the beginning of cooking to draw the calcium out of the bones. You'll never taste it, and it'll add nutrients.
I wouldn't discard the veggies from the simmering, I usually blend them into the stock after taking off the fat!! We deep fry our turkeys and this makes a very rich stock. i have been making a turkey almost once a month since finding out how wonderful deep frying was! Needless to say i also have lots of soup too!
Haven't tried this, but it sure sounds great! Thanks for the recipe! Will give it a try next week!!!!!
