Food Monday ~ Duck Soup

I am not talking about the 1933 Movie with the Marx Brothers: Groucho, Harpo, Chico & Zeppo. No way!

The tantalizing aroma in my kitchen right now is coming from the stock pot on the cooker. The carcass & leg bones from yesterdays duck, with an onion, celery and carrot are simmering since seven of the clock this morning.

It smells like a mighty stock in progress.

I carefully stripped the remains of the meat last night and they are for adding to the soup with the juice of an orange and a dash from a bottle 😉 at the final stage later today.

      Celia, I make soup in batches, have a bowl the day I make it and freeze the remainder in portions for other days. This way I always have a meal at hand if I am not in form for cooking.

    Never did cook duck but this soup sounds divine. I remember a Peking Duck banquet in Toronto, oh my, duck served 6 different ways. Thanks for the memory 🙂

      I have not cooked a duck in years so it was a ideal when E&G were here to share it. I enjoyed the old style family Sunday lunch and having a pot of stock/soup is a bonus! Extra veg with the duck scrapings make a tasty lunch with crusty bread!
