It's rich broth would provide nourishment and sustain us through many meals. I added potatoes and cabbage to the already stewed carrots, celery and onions to give the broth it's hearty consistency. I will freeze a large portion of the stew for quick and easy meals on the coldest of days. A real treat after being out all day in the harsh weather.
|Spices and root vegetables give the stew it's deep rich flavor. |
Add your favorites to the pot.
|In a large pot, add enough water to cover your turkey carcass. Add |
carrots, onions, garlic and spices. Simmer on low until meat falls off
|Remove the carcass from the broth, then pick the meat off the bones. |
Add the meat back into the pot.
|Prepare your root vegetables to add to the stew.|
|I love cabbage....|
|and chunky potatoes...|
|Simmer until your veggies are done. Add salt and pepper to taste.|
If you are freezing your excess, be sure to let it cool before storing it in any plastic. Hot plastic can leach toxins into your food. I use glass to store all my foods whether it's in the refrigerator, freezer or in my pantry. I re-use jars(except pickle jars) that I get from the grocery store or I use canning jars.
I also do not store food in the boxes that they come in from the store. Bugs love the glue that they use to hold the boxes together. I do not want to have to use toxic sprays to get rid of a bug infestation. Once in your panrty, they will not stop until the have ruined everything that they can get into. This was an expensive lesson for us to learn.
