For those that are not tired of turkey...
Remove meat from turkey carcass and
set aside. Break carcass into large chunks,
place in pot with 1 medium onion, halved
and a stalk of celery, cover with water, add
1 teas. ground pepper and 1 teas. salt.
Simmer a minimum of 4 hours but overnight is best.
Skim fat off surface, strain through a fine strainer,
reserving the liquid. Put liquid back in pot.
Add 3 medium onions, chopped and 1/2 bunch
of parsley, finely chopped and simmer for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, peel and dice 4 carrots, dice 3 stalks of
celery, and chop 1 pound of mushrooms. Bring liquid
to a boil and add the carrots, celery, mushrooms and
the turkey meat. Turn off and let sit for 2 hours or
if in a hurry, simmer for 20 minutes. Prepare 1 cup
soup pasta or noodles according to package directions
and add to soup with 1/2 teas. thyme.
This is a nice way to take off the chill after you put
up your outdoor Christmas decorations.
