March 30th is Turkey Neck Soup Day, which may sound odd, but it comes from a mindset of not wasting anything. The neck, when simmered for a few hours, makes a delicious broth for soup. Of course, because of the many tiny bones it's not edible (not even for pets!), but the broth can be used for many things. You can also freeze the broth in an ice cube tray and have small portions of broth for cooking!

Available at Amazon.
