Since Kwanfan is asking about cooking a turkey, I think it's time for a recipes thread. Here's an easy turkey soup using the leftover carcass: 1 turkey carcass 2 carrots, diced 1 onion, chopped 2 celery stalks, chopped 1 cup canned tomatoes 2 tbs. minced fresh parsley 1 bay leaf 1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg 1/8 tsp. cloves salt to taste ground black pepper to taste chicken or turkey broth or stock to cover 1 cup chopped cooked turkey Break turkey carcass into sections and place in large pan. Add vegetables, herbs, seasonings and broth to cover. Bring to boil, simmer covered for 2 hours. Cool slightly and skim the surface of the liquid. Add turkey meat, cook over gentle heat for 20 minutes. Serve hot with crusty bread.
