      Wonderful tasteing soup with a nice rich broth. I only used 3/8 tsp total of ground Cayenne and it had plenty of bite. Wonder if the Cayenne should be the flaked type. Chop and measure everything while the turtle meat is cooling. Things go fast in the mid part of the recipe. You will have more than the 15 min prep time if you have to bone the meat. Overall, great recipe. I will make again
