Aunt Wanda's Turkey Carcass Soup Recipe
- 1 carcass
- 3 large carrots, chopped
- 1 (15 ounce) can cut green beans, drained
- 1 cup chopped celery
- 1 cup chopped fresh spinach
- 1 cup chopped cabbage
- 2 cups white rice
step 1: Pick your Thanksgiving turkey nearly clean. (Turkey salad is great for a few days, or even turkey pot pies.) We are not real concerned about the choice meat here. Dump the turkey and all of its debris, including the juices, into a large pot. Add green beans, celery, spinach, cabbage, and white rice. Pour in enough water to cover everything.
step 2: Bring soup to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for an hour or so. Add more water as needed.
step 3: Remove all turkey bones and unwanted debris (i.e., skin, cartilage, etc.). There you have it. It's kind of a culinary scrapbook of your Turkey Day.
