With the very cold temperatures that we are experiencing, I decided to bake a turkey in our oven to warm up our old farmhouse kitchen. The turkey in the oven smelled soooo amazing! And it tasted as good as it smelled!
Now, what to do with the leftover turkey? Make Turkey Soup, of course!!
I use the turkey carcass to make broth. It makes such a rich broth that is not only good for you, but adds wonderful flavor to your soup as well.
1 turkey carcass 1 cup of butter
4 quarts of water 1- 1/ 2 cups of flour
1 large onion, chopped 2 cups of Fagan Family Farm milk
3 stalks celery, chopped 3 cups diced cooked turkey
3 large potatoes, diced salt & pepper to taste
In a large soup pot, cook turkey carcass with water to make 3 quarts of broth. Remove bones and reserve meat for soup. Strain the broth. After straining, add the chopped vegetables to 1 quart of broth and bring to a boil. Allow the vegetables to cook for at least 20 minutes or until tender. Add in the diced turkey, your farm fresh milk and the remaining 2 quarts of broth. Melt the butter on the stove or in a microwave and whisk in the flour. Add the flour mixture to your soup and stir well. Season with salt and pepper.
