Turkey Soup

Turkey Soup 011I hope everyone saved their turkey bones.  One of the most flavourful soups made is one made from bones.  Can be any kind of bones.  Chicken, beef, veal, pork and yes turkey.  Bones that have roasted first improve the flavour of the broth.  But better still a long cooking time helps to remove as many mineral and nutrients as possible from the bones.  This sort of broth is extraordinarily rich in nutrients.  Minerals, amino acids, gelatin and many more are found in bone broth.  These things help detoxification, digestion, support skin health, the adrenals, bones and teeth and they say bone broths will help our body’s ability to create healthy blood.  So why wouldn’t we want to eat soup.  Our grandmothers were correct in giving us chicken soup when we became ill.  It helps make our symptoms and side effects of colds, flu and upper respiratory infections less severe.

So what are you waiting for?  Put on a pot of soup with bones in it.

Turkey Soup 001Into a large stock pot place your bones and a large amount of water to cover these bones and then some.  I used a very large stock pot.  I had a lot of bones.  You can very easily cut this recipe down in size.  But if you don’t share this with anyone then you can surely freeze it for other recipes.  I used 8 liters of water.

Turkey Soup 002Next into the water I added 1 large chopped onion, 2 cups of chopped carrots, 2 cups of chopped celery, 3 peeled and cubed potatoes, 3 peeled garlic cloves, 6 bay leaves, 1/2 cup fresh chopped parsley and 4 tablespoons of salt.

Turkey Soup 004I also added peppercorns into a tea holder.  This prevents them from swimming around in your bowl when you are eating them.  Impossible to remove when cooked.  You could also add the garlic in here but I like to make sure the garlic is eaten.  Once cooked it is very soft and does not have a strong flavour.Turkey Soup 005Put the lid on and put it in your pot.

Turkey Soup 003The veggies will at first sink to the bottom but….

Turkey Soup 006Will start to float after some cooking. I cooked this broth for 5 hours at a medium low heat.  It was at a gentle boil while cooking.  You can cook it longer but don’t cook it for less then 3 hours.  This will ensure you have a nice strong broth.

Turkey Soup 007While my soup was simmering, I place about 2 cups of noodles into a bowl.Turkey Soup 008In a separate pot I added lots of water which I brought to a boil and added the noodles.  Cook these according to the package directions.

Turkey Soup 011Place them into a bowl, add your gorgeous broth along with some veggies and meat and your good to go.

RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

Bones From One Turkey

1 Large Chopped Onion

2 Cups Of Chopped Carrots

2 Cups Of Chopped Celery

1/2 Cup Fresh Chopped Parsley

4-5 Tablespoons Salt, To Start

3 Cloves Chopped Garlic

1 Tea Container Of Peppercorns

3 Peeled Cubed Potatoes

PREPARATION

Into a large stock pot add the turkey bones, enough water to cover the turkey and a little more.  Don’t forget some of the water will evaporate.  Next add all the other ingredients.  Bring all of this to a boil, removing any scum that forms, reduce heat and simmer for 6 hours.  Serve family style or individually in a bowl.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

In another pot add 8-9 cups of salted water and bring to a boil.  At this point add the noodles reduce heat and cook according to the package.  I always make more noodles then I need because I keep them covered in the fridge and they are ready to go the next time I have soup.  Saves me a step.

ENJOY!
