Recipe by Chef Small

Al Yeganeh, from Soup Kitchen International gave out his recipe in New York Magazine, 10/28/96. I substituted the Turkey for Itlalian sausage and it made an even better soup for my taste. This is the orignal recipe.

  2. Place all ingredients for the stock in stockpot and fill with cold water until turkey is just covered. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 1/2 hours until turkey is cooked. Remove turkey. When cool enough to handle, debone, and return bones to stockpot, reserving meat. Discard skin. Cover and continue cooking for another 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Strain. Set aside.
