    I finally made the time to use the carcass I saved at the last turkey smoke. I used a variation of one my childhood soups - ham hock and greens (eastern European).

    Chopped some Tuscan kale and collard greens

    Cooked the bones for about 3.5 hours

    After picking the meat off

    Greens blanched then added to the pot; pic taken 30 min later

    Finished with sour cream

    Lemon or vinegar will be added in the bowl.

    Thank you for checking this out.

    Yeah, soup from bones! Lithuanian background here. A nice ham bone simmering while split peas or barley soak...

    I still have a zipper bag of turkey stock ice cubes in the freezer. In the fridge I have the second half of a big jar of chicken stock from the bird I cooked on the Weber recently.

    Soup stock made from bones = meat jello!
