How to make it
- 1. Turkey tails always seem to have pin feathers. Pull them out. The tails are in three parts so make a cut between each part about half way to the bottom.
- 2. Get three ltrs (just over three qts) of water boiling and add the turkey tails and chicken skins and bones, if you have them plus a tsp of salt and the bay leaves.
- 3. Cover and bring the water back to a gentle boil and simmer for an hour or so. I do all of this in a slow cooker.
- 4. Turn off the pot and let cool right down.
- 5. You can poor the stock through a strainer or use a sieve to remove all the bits and pieces. Discard the chicken skin and bones and the bay leaves.
- 6. Chill the stock in the fridge until the fat has congealed on the top.
- 7. While the stock is chilling, deconstruct the turkey tails by hand. Save the lean meat bits and discard the bones, skin and fat. Wash your hands before & after.
- 8. When the stock has chilled skim off the fat and discard.
- 9. Get your stock hotted up again and add everything but the zucchini and the mushrooms.
- 10. Simmer this lot until the carrots are about half to 2/3 cooked then add the zucchini and mushrooms and simmer until the carrots are done.
- 11. Salt and pepper to taste.
- Where are the noodles? In the noodle bin, as always. If you want noodles in this soup just put some pasta in about 12 – 15 minutes before the soup’s done. Short peaces of vermicelli work best but whatever. I’ve also added a cup or so of frozen whole kernel corn about 15 minutes before the soup is done. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve with warm French bread or baguettes.
