Essential Turkey Broth
Once you have stripped off any leftover turkey meat for sandwiches and casseroles, turn the carcass into a broth for soup, such as Turkey-Barley Soup.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
Tip: To clean leeks: Trim off fuzzy root and dark green stems. With a sharp knife, cut several incisions in the leek's stem end to open it up like a fan. Soak in water for several minutes, then swish to dislodge dirt. Repeat until no grit remains.
Nutrition Note: After straining and skimming, broth has negligible calories and nutrients except sodium (590 mg per cup).
