1 onion diced
3 cloves garlic minced
1 stalk celery diced
2 T. butter
14 C. water
6 t. chicken base or bouillon
1 turkey carcass
1/2 t. salt
1 t. Cajun seasoning
1 C. sliced carrots
1 C. frozen peas
12 oz. Amish home-style egg noodles
1. In a large pot, sauté onion, garlic and celery in butter until tender and slightly caramelized.
2. Add water, chicken base, turkey carcass (I had to break it into 2 pieces to fit it in the pot), salt and Cajun seasoning. Cook on low for 1 1/2 hours.
3. Remove turkey carcass from the pot and pull meat off the carcass with a knife and a fork. Cut up the meat and return it to the pot. Add sliced carrots and peas and bring pot to a boil.
4. Add noodles and continue to boil uncovered until noodles are tender. (Check noodle package for cooking time.)
Don't throw out the turkey carcass after Thanksgiving dinner is over. Save it to make a delicious, hearty soup. Plus the homemade bone broth will be full of healthy nutrients. I love homemade turkey noodle soup and look forward to it even more than the turkey dinner.
