Serves: 10

Ingredients

  • 1 turkey carcass
  • 4 cups water
  • 8 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 4 large onions, 1 quartered and 3 chopped
  • 1 cup diced rutabaga or turnip, peeled
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 4 carrots, peeled and cut into thin strips
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup pearl barley
  • 1 can (14 ounces) unsalted tomatoes
  • 1 can (16 ounces) white beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 pound leftover light turkey meat, cut into bite-size chunks

Directions

In a large stockpot, combine the turkey carcass, water, broth and quartered onion. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 1 hour.

Strain the mixture, discarding the carcass and onion. Chill the liquid in the refrigerator — overnight, if possible — and skim off the fat from the broth's surface. Return the liquid to the stockpot.

Add the remaining ingredients to the broth mixture. Bring to a simmer and cook, covered, for about 1 hour.

Ladle into individual bowls and serve immediately.
