step-by-step directions
  • FOR THE STOCK: Combine all the ingredients in a large stockpot. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and skim any impurities that rise to the surface. Simmer for 5 hours. Strain through a fine mesh strainer and discard solids.
  • FOR THE DUMPLINGS: Make a well in the flour in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Add the eggs and milk mixture to the well, then add the nutmeg and chives and whisk all together until smooth.
  • FOR THE SOUP: Heat butter over medium in a large stockpot. Add the vegetables with a large pinch of salt, and sweat the vegetables until translucent. Add the pulled turkey and stock, cover and bring to a simmer.  Continue to simmer for 45 minutes. 
  • Bring soup to a boil and cut in dumplings by placing batter on a damp cutting board and using a bench scraper or knife to cut into bite sized dumplings. Drop the dumplings into the boiling soup, and wait for them all to float to the surface. Let boil another minute, add tarragon, and serve.
