Trash into Treasure- Carcass Soup

Trash into Treasure- Carcass Soup

I know this sounds really gross, but…..Some of the best soups I have ever made have come from what most people throw out.  I remember Grandma Smith ALWAYS saved the carcass. First she would nibble meat off of it, and then it would become a delicious soup base. In her memory, I share this concept with you.

Turn THIS:

Turkey Carcass

Into THIS:



Carcasss or bones from ANY animal

Fresh chopped veggies (whatever you have, but always include the basics of:

  1. Onion
  2. Carrots
  3. Celery
  4. Parsley or Cilantro if you prefer



  1. Saute the chopped veggies in olive oil until soft
  2. Chop the carcass into manageable pieces and add to pot
  3. Add water so carcass is totally submerged
  4. Bring to a boil
  5. Let simmer for a couple of hours
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste

That’s the whole thing. You will have a very rich stock with veggies. Add noodles or whatever else you wish, and turn your trash into treasure!


Happy Eating,
