Over the next few days, a few different possible sources of turkey carcasses may come up for me and I will be extremely happy to get them. I love making things with leftover bones and Thanksgiving is a windfall for making soups and stocks. There is a possibility that I will get as many as three different leftover sets of turkey bones over the next four days. The hardest part is making arrangements for proper storage and picking them up, but I am already planning.Wondering if other people have some favorite ideas to share about using up the leftover turkey bones. Please note: At this time, I am only planning on getting the leftover bones (carcasses), very little actual meat itself since I expect these carcasses will be picked very clean. Of course if each cook has extra meat that they want to give me, I'll take that, but I definitely want the bones. I am planning on cooking with one immediately, a second one probably after the weekend, and if I get a third, I will save it up to cook in a few weeks.Some ideas I have for the bones:- Making turkey stock as a base for anything else.- A turkey soup, of course.- A turkey stew, with various vegetables and miscellaneous leftovers thrown in.- A turkey gumbo style dish (just a bit of visible meat on the bones makes this dish easily; it is a dish that needs very little actual meat)In general, I believe that long and slow cooking of the bones result in flavor rich base for other recipes and a great way of using up everything possible out of them.In case anyone is interested, these are the types of recipes I have in mind so far, but would love some additional ideas.Turkey gumbohttp://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/emeril-lagasse/turkey-bon...Turkey soup: index of several specific recipeshttp://www.blogher.com/save-turkey-carcass-and-your-leftover...I use much less meat and more vegetables than the above recipes call for.Thanks,Lois Carmen D.
