Irish Turkey Soup

Submitted by: ICEDREGULAR

Introduction

After Thanksgiving, or any time you make a large turkey this soup is great for left overs. My family doesn't care for the wings or legs so this is a great way to get them to eat up!

Ingredients

    After the turkey is carved take remaining legs, wings and carcass for all turkey meat. I estimated 4 cups after measuring this last time and there was some white, mostly dark.

    6 Large Carrots
    6 Celery Stalks
    Thyme
    Sage
    Parsley
    Water

Directions

After turkey has been carved and all left over meat put away, break up the carcass and place in pot with legs and wings. Cover with water and boil for about 30 minutes. Most of the water will boil off, so add some more when it becomes necessary. Use tongs to take bones out of the boiling pot and scrape off all meat with a sharp knife. When all meat is litearlly falling off the bones and there are not bones left in the pot, boil down until it becomes stock. I like to leave a piece of skin from one of the wings in the pot for flavor. **I also use butter when cooking the turkey so I added butter as an ingredient for fat content and calculating the recipe**.

Add 3 cups of water and bring back to a boil.

Add 1 and 1/2 cups barley and boil for 10 mins to fully cook.

While barley is cooking peel carrots and chop into bite size pieces. Add carrots to pot.

Cut celery stalks into bite size pieces. Add to pot.

Add thyme, sage, parsley and any other herbs desired. Add a bouillon cube for flavor if eating right away.

Add 4 more cups of water and turn down heat to simmer. Simmer for 15-30 mins. Check soup for liquid - add water if needed -- enjoy!

This soup tastes better the next day, so I advise storing in the fridge and re-heating.

Makes 8 Large servings.
