Turkey Soup

This is the way my mother makes turkey soup with Thanksgiving leftovers. It's a brothy soup full of great turkey flavor and a nice end to the preceeding week's gluttony....

  • 1 turkey carcass
  • 3 onions, minced
  • 2-3 stalks celery, minced
  • 1/2 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 t. salt
  • 1/2-3/4 t. pepper
  • flour
  • milk
  • rice, uncooked
Cover carcass with water and boil several hours until meat easily falls off bone. Strain, pick meat off bones, and return to liquid.
Saute onions, celery, and garlic in some butter. Add, along with remaining ingredients, to soup. Make a cup of thin white sauce and add to soup (melt a bit of butter, add some flour and milk and stir). Boil until it's done!
