Wondering how to make turkey soup from scratch using your Thanksgiving leftovers? Let me explain the simple process from start to finish.
The first step is to make the stock. Place the turkey bones in a large pot, along with 1 cup of the carrot, onion, celery, and red pepper flakes. Then fill the pot with the water. You want to cover all of the bones with water.
Bring to a simmer and let simmer for 3 hours, until the water becomes a light golden colored stock. Place a strainer in another large pot, and pour the stock and bones through the strainer.
