"I have been making this soup for years, still my favorite way to use leftover turkey."

"This is, by far, the best way to use left over turkey. My husband buys an extra large turkey to be sure there is some left so I can make this soup. I leave out the barley and the okra because I don't have it on hand. WONDERFUL!"
