Stir in remaining 5 cups water, chicken stock, peppercorns, sugar, star anise, and ginger. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer stock mixture 1 hour. Strain through a fine sieve into a large bowl. Discard solids.

  • Wipe out pot; return strained stock to pot. Stir in fish sauce, salt, and leftover turkey; cook over medium heat 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
