Turkey Soup

It's time for turkey soup, everyone! Here is our mom's recipe.

  • turkey carcass
  • 2 c. chopped cooked turkey
  • 2 c. sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 c. sliced carrots
  • 1 c. sliced or chopped onion
  • 1 c. sliced celery
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 t. poultry seasoning
  • 2 t. salt
  • 1/2 c. rice or barley
  • 1/2 c. flour
  • 1 1/2 c. (or so) milk
Put turkey carcass, meat, mushrooms, carrots, celery, onion, garlic, seasoning, and salt in large Dutch oven. Pour 2 quarts water over. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer 1 hour. Remove carcass and pull off any bits of meat from it.

Add meat back to pot along with the rice or barley. Cover and simmer 1 more hour.

Slowly stir 1/2 cup milk into 1/2 cup flour, mixing until smooth. Add to soup, stirring constantly until blended. Add 1 cup milk, more or less, to soup. Bring to a boil and cook until thickened.

Makes 10 cups
