Fresh Turkey Soup
Our friend Marie Rocheford always provides us with her tasty recipes. Here is one that she is proud to serve her family for the Holidays. Her nephew's wait with bated breath for her famous Turkey Soup.
Marie says, " It is the perfect lunch for Thanksgiving or Christmas Day. Turkey Soup is richer tasting then Chicken Soup". The broth is clear and golden. The Turkey parts are cooked with an array of vegetables and simmered until tender.
At deliciouscookies.com our reader's favorite soup is homemade Chicken Soup. Since this is in the same family as Chicken Soup we would like you to try it.
Turkey Parts-4 wings and 2 drumsticks.
Chicken Stock- 49 oz. can.
Carrots-6 peeled and chopped.
Onions-4 medium cut in half.
Celery-8 stalks including leaves and heart.
Parsley-1 large bunch coarsely chopped.
Salt-1 1/2 teaspoons.
Pepper- 1/2 teaspoon.
Rinse and clean the Turkey parts. Place them in a large soup pot. Pour in the chicken stock. Add in the carrots, onions, celery, parsley, salt and pepper.
Pour in the water. Water should cover all the Turkey parts. Add a little more if necessary. Bring to a boil. Lower the flame to medium and continue cooking the ingredients for 1 1/2 hours. After cooking remove the Turkey meat and carrots onto a large platter. Let cool. Strain the soup through a colander into a large bowl. Skim off some of the fat. Return the broth back to the soup pot. In a separate pot boil water and prepare 1/2 pound of your favorite small soup pasta. Rinse. Place some pasta, Turkey meat and carrot in the bottom of each soup bowl. Ladle the broth into the bowls and serve with some fresh crusty bread. Happy Holidays
