Food Storage Tips: Day-after-Thanksgiving soup

Making turkey broth is easy!

Step 1: Collect the turkey carcass while Thanksgiving dinner is being cleaned up.
Step 2: Place turkey carcass in a large crock pot, roaster oven (which can function like a giant crock pot), or stock pot. Cover the carcass with water. Add a splash of vinegar, if desired, to extract calcium from the bones. The vinegar cannot be tasted in the finished product. If you have a crock pot that will fit the turkey carcass, you can get the broth started before the Thanksgiving dishes are done.
Step 3: Simmer on low for at least 2-3 hours, or overnight, or slightly longer, until you feel like dealing with it.
Step 4: Place a colander inside a different large stock pot. Carefully pour the broth into the colander. The colander will catch the bones and meat. Using gloves or hot pads, carefully remove the colander and its contents from the stock pot full of strained broth.
Step 5: Place the stock pot in the fridge. Let it cool until the fat is solid. Skim off the fat and discard. Enjoy the broth in soup or other recipes. Use it within a week, or freeze or can it.
Step 6: You can get a couple of meals’ worth of meat by separating the meat from the bones. A “chicken pickin’ party” (or turkey, as the case may be) takes a strong stomach, and I don’t recommend it for those in the first trimester of pregnancy! But my kids seem to think it’s fun to help, especially if I let them eat a little of the meat. After letting the meat and bones cool, I put on disposable gloves. I pick off the parts of meat that look like meat, package it in meal-sized portions with plastic wrap, and freeze it to use in casseroles or soups later. Bones and anything questionable (connective tissue) gets trashed.

You can take that broth and turn it into soup. Lion House Chicken Noodle Soup, posted by Crystal at Everyday Food Storage a few weeks ago, is a delicious recipe to try. We are adding it to our family cookbook.

Making your own broth is a little extra work, but it is rewarding to get some extra “free” meals out of something that would have otherwise been wasted.
