Recipe Notes
HOW TO STORE COOKED TURKEY SOUP
Transfer completely cooled turkey soup to an airtight container.
Keep refrigerated for up to 4 days.
To reheat, add more liquid, stir, and reheat over medium heat on the stove top.
HOW TO FREEZE COOKED TURKEY SOUP
Make sure the soup is completely cooled.
Transfer soup to large heavy duty freezer bags – I divide it into two freezer bags – and freeze the soup for 3 to 4 months.
Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
To reheat, add more liquid, stir, and reheat over medium heat on the stove top.
