11/26/2005: Winter Soups...
Time to cook that left over Turkey Carcass into some Yummie Turkey Tortellini Soup.
To make a soup broth - Just put the turkey bonz and cover with water in a soup pot with some salt, pepper, bay leaves, parsley and some onions cook till the bonz fall apart (can be several hours on a low simmer). Remove the bonz and tidbits and pick the good meat off (and any left over meat from the meal) to add back to the soup. Toss the bonz in the trash.
Add chopped Carrots, Celery and add frozen peas, green beans, lima beans, chopped spinach and cook til almost tender. Get soup up to a roiling boil, then add the frozen or dried tortellini. Cook till the tortellini are soft.
Serve piping hot and yummie!!
[I put single servings into sour cream or cottage cheese containers and label and freeze for later. The start of my winter soups.]
