Homemade Smoked Turkey Broth
Sierra Mist (optional)
Potatoes, peeled and diced
Cream of tartar
Baby Clams (with Juice)
Pineapple (with Juice)
Hot Pepper Oil (optional)
Bring about 6 cups liquid (broth, juice from clams and pineapple and soda or water as needed) to boil and add peeled, diced potatoes and salt. I used 4-5 large russets. Turn heat down and simmer 40 minutes.
Add as much gelatin and cream of tartar as desired. Cream of tartar = potassium. Clams are the "whole" animal so don't need gelatin, but I always sneak in extra where I can and find the gelatin adds richness and balances the sweet/tart of the pineapple well. I used a little over half a cup.
I added about a cup or so of Sierra Mist because it had been sitting in the fridge a while, flat. I don't know that it necessarily added anything "special." A little cane sugar would work just fine too. Add the clams and the pineapple at the end. Correct seasoning (add more salt, of course) and serve.
I like a dash of hot pepper oil too.
