Healthy Homemade Turkey Soup Recipe

Yum! This homemade turkey soup is even better for body and soul than chicken soup. And it makes enough turkey soup to freeze and take the chill off cold winter days ahead.

I've been using this delicious, nutritious homemade turkey soup recipe for many years. After every turkey dinner my family looks forward to leftover turkey soup made with the bones and scrapes. They all know I couldn't bear to throw away a perfect turkey carcass.

The healthy homemade turkey soup recipe below takes several days and makes a large 12 quart pot of soup. If you prefer a smaller batch, it's simple to cut the recipe in half.

Rich Turkey Soup Stock

You'll need the following:Add to a 12 qt. Soup pot:Cover, bring to a boil over high heat and simmer on low for 4 hours. Then let stock cool on stove overnight. This lengthy process helps leach all of the nutrition and flavor out of the bones and into the soup stock.

In the morning, when your stock has cooled, remove the bones, bits and pieces and, in order to let the fat harden so you can skim it off, refrigerate the stock for at least a day.

Homemade Turkey Soup Recipe

When you're ready to make soup, remove ALL fat from the top. Then place stock on burner and turn to high. Once it comes to a boil turn burner to low and simmer for the rest of the cooking time. As soup heats up, prepare and add the following ingredients:Rice needs to cook about 1½ hours. Onions and sweet potatoes require 45 minutes to one hour. Peas and greens should cook no longer than ½ hour. And the meat only needs about 10 minutes at a simmer to be thoroughly cooked or heated up.

This homemade turkey soup recipe is not engraved in stone, so feel free to experiment and create your own. But whatever you do, don't let another turkey carcass go unused.
