Moe's Turkey Bone Soup

READY IN: 5hrs
Recipe by Cook Lace

This is a recipe I think came from a local newspaper, but I'm not sure. I've been making it for over 10 years whenever I have the remains of a roast turkey.

I wondered about this recipe when I read "4 Cups of Rice". Gave it a try. I would not clasify this as a soup recipe. If you like Jumbalaya, lots of Jumbalaya, you will like this. Be sure to add your favorite spices to liven it up.
