Family Left Over Turkey and Rice soup

Submitted by: SPAZWRITER

Introduction

This is our favorite -- we gave up on the noodles cause they always seemed to get soggy. Love it with rice. We use wild rice sometimes, that's great too. You can pretty much add whatever you want, it's a great left-over soup. This is our favorite -- we gave up on the noodles cause they always seemed to get soggy. Love it with rice.

Directions

Okay...this takes a day pretty much, because you cook down the carcass and get all the meat cooked off. I stick it in a large soup pot, cover it with water, bring it to a boil, and cook for about 4 hours, sometimes longer. Then you have to fish out all the bones. If you have lots of time before using it, then refrigerate after cooling so you can skim off the fat.
After you've skimmed out all the bones, break up the meat as best you can. Usually there isn't much white meat left, it's mostly dark meat.
After letting it sit over night and get cold in the fridge, skim all the fat off and bring to a boil. Add rice, barley, carrots, brussel sprouts and spices. Stir and bring to a boil then turn down to low and simmer for about 35 to 40 minutes and then add frozen peas. Continue for about 15 minutes.
Serve with sourdough or biscuits. YUM! Warms up well the next day too.
This makes at least two meals and lunches.
