Elle's Kitchen: Turkey Soup

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.
