The Holton Homestead
Today is a perfect day for soup.
But this just isn't any ol' soup.
Saturday evening we had a gathering, and a good friend brought over a smoked Turkey. Seriously, it was amazing. The carcass got picked pretty clean. But it was so good, we just couldn't let it go.
The remainder of the carcass was placed in our crockpot. Added water and walked away. 24 hours later I removed all the bones and was left with an amazing broth and tender shredded turkey.
I then ventured out to the garden and harvested several carrots to add to the soup. I also added some of our garlic and one of our onions. They sat in the crockpot until they became tender. Then I added the finishing touches.
Tyler made noodles with our duck eggs. They are perfect for soups. So delicious! This is one of the most flavorful soups I've ever eaten.
Moral of the story. Waste nothing. A whole cooked chicken, duck, goose, or Turkey can have a second life. There is so much good stuff left, even when you think it's done.
