How to make it
- In a large soup pot, add the water, salt, pepper, soy sauce, Worcestershire, onions, and duck meat, plus the duck carcass.
- The carcass adds wonderful flavor to this soup.
- Cover with tight-fitting lid.
- Slowly bring just to boil, then keep the heat low for the remaining time of the cooking process.
- After about one hour, add your vegetables, bay leaves, and the vanilla.
- The reason I add vanilla to this is because it dramatically heightens the flavor of the finished dish.
- Simmer, covered, another four or five hours.
- Remove the carcass and any other bones, as well as the bay leaf before serving.
- This soup is delicious, and healthy, especially considering all the fat has been previously removed, and the duck gel formed at the bottom of the cooking dish is very rich in duck flavor.
- Toast up some garlic bread, or toast an Italian or French loaf, cut into diagonal sections, slathered with delicious garlic butter to complete the dish.
- Garlic butter is EASY to make!
- Simply take ½ lb of butter, add crushed garlic, and let it stand, refrigerated, until ready to use.
- The garlic will thoroughly permeate the butter.
- This butter also keeps very well for weeks when stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
- ENJOY! :+D
