How to Make Turkey Soup

Carve a turkey and set aside the turkey bones. Turkey bones that appear to be void of any turkey, when used to make soup, like a miracle seem to find the remaining turkey that cannot be seen, and fill the soup with pieces of meat that can make another meal.

    Make sure that before serving to lift each bone with a slotted spoon and carefully remove any remaining turkey meat from the bones, so that they fall into the soup. When you are convinced that the bones are now bare, lift the bones out of the soup, and throw them away. Skim the soup with the slotted spoon to make sure that no little bones remain in the soup.

Tips

  • This recipe should make about 6 cups of soup. If you need more then double the cans of broth, and use 2 packages of vegetables for soup......That is what they are called....do not use only mixed vegetables...
  • Fresh carrots, potatoes, parsley, onions, celery should be diced before adding to the soup.
  • Add salt, pepper, and any other seasonings of your choice.
  • This is the fast way to make the soup. If you prefer to make it with fresh vegetables feel free to do so and allow about an hour more cooking time.
