Turkey soup help

363 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  karne
Sooo, I'm making turkey/veggie soup for my sickly kiddoes.

Unfortunately, in my sleepless stupor I forgot to pull the skin off the turkey legs.

When I make the soup, I simmer the legs, celery and onions together before adding the rest of the ingredients.

Will it still turn out do you think? Like, will the turkey 'goodness', still come out?

I think there will be MORE turkey goodness...

The skin will add more flavor... a bit more fat, too, but you can always pick it off when it's cold if you want. I always make broth with skin, bones, meat, everything, though.

Bonus! Thanks mama.

I called my mother in the interim, and she said 'Ack! The skin should always be left on' and she said the rest of what you did too.
Good to know!

Yes, I always leave the skin on, and add a little cider vinegar as well. You can always put the stock in the fridge overnight and skim off whatever fat you don't want in the morning.
