    Derf's Note:

    Use the turkey leftovers to make this hearty soup. If everyone is tired of turkey, freeze it and enjoy it on a cold winter night with some crunchy french bread

      Excellent! This soup is full of flavor, and it is very hardy. We used smoked turkey which gave the broth a smokey flavor, but I made this as you directed, but I didn't have a rutabaga so that was the only change. You just don't need anything else with this soup, except a hearty grain bread. Absolutely delightful. Thanks, Dorothy, for sharing your wonderful recipe.

      This is an excellent soup! I had frozen some leftover turkey and broth, so I used it for the broth but added the onion, tomatoes, and herbs and then added the soup ingredients. It was the BEST !! I just made some cornbread to complete a winter supper. Thanks so much for a keeper recipe.
