Williamsburg Inn Turkey Soup Recipe

Publisher Photo
This recipe is simple to prepare, and it makes a lot of delicious soup! Our children are on their own now, so I was happy to find that this soup freezes well, too. I put it in individual containers and thaw just as much as I need for quick and easy meals. That's handy when I'm busy braiding wool rugs, oil painting or sewing...or just busy period.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 27, 2012

I really like this soup recipe. I added some spices as I didn't have the carcass to make my broth. Instead I used bullion and poultry seasoning. To smoke it a bit I added some pureed chipolte pepper in adobo sauce (my new favourite flavour enhancer). I would have added a bit more veggies, rice and turkey to have it be a bit meatier. Overall it is a great recipe to make and tweak for your family's tastes!

This is the BEST turkey soup you will ever eat! I have been known to cook a turkey specifically to make this soup! It also freezes very well so you can enjoy it again at a later date.
