"This is a fabulous recipe, especially when made with my Rescued Turkey Stock (#24576). It also freezes very well."

"I used your Rescued Turkey Stock # 24576 and this was the best soup ever. The next day when the soup was a little thicker we had it over rice. Wonderful recipe"
"Excellent turkey soup. I cut back on the mushrooms a bit and added equivalent amounts of onions, carrot and celery - my kids aren't big mushroom fans. The barley gives it a wonderful wholesomeness. Thanks again Lennie for another great recipe. "
"This is a great soup. I did all the Thanksgiving cooking this year, so my wife returned the favor by making a double recipe of this soup with some of the left overs. She added an extra rib or two of celery and cut the mushrooms back to 5 cups because it seemed like enough and it was. She also added a little extra turkey because we had plenty. The soup is wonderful and gets even better with reheating. We froze a bunch of it to enjoy later."
" May a Big pot added seeded hot peppers went over great"
"Made this last weekend with using your stock. The only mistake I made was I had 4 cups of turkey left over and I used it all and it made to much meat. Loved the broth I did sub Balsamic vinegar as I didn't have red wine vingar. DH loved the soup too but said it needed a little more barley."
"Wonderful flavors. Whole family loved it."
"Delicious!!! I used leftover chicken and chicken stock. I loved how thick this became. We had it for Saturday night dinner along with corn muffins. YUM!"
"This is the second year making this recipe. It is wonderful. We do increase the barley so that the soup is a little more filling, but that is just a personal preference. Love the addition of a little tomato paste to help vary the leftovers!"
"Thought I'd try"
"The five stars are strictly for the tomato paste and red wine vinegar; this combination is a winner. Build the remainder as loosely as you choose. I would suggest that, rather than add the tomato paste with the barley, you make a well in the veggies during saute and caramelize for added depth and sweetness. Thank you Lennie!"
"We love this! Seriously, roast that carcass!"
"I should have written a reviewing before this. Lennie, I have been making this since you posted it in 2002 using your Rescued Turkey Stock and it is simply the best turkey soup ever.
Only change in my house in to use 1 cup of barley which I half-cook prior to adding to the soup so it does not absorb all of the stock. Oh, and use Balsamic versus red-wine vinegar."
"Very easy and super soup. Even better the next day. This is a keeper for a quick delicious soup"
"This was my first time making homemade turkey soup. I did use the Rescued Turkey Stock recipe (#24576). It was just perfect, not overstated. I ended up with closer to 12-14 cups of soup. Must of been just right cause the flavor is there. Froze some for school lunches. I'll be making this again. Thank you"
"Good soup on a cool day. I made a couple of changes based on what I had handy. Used Rescued Turkey stock and doubled the barley but used ground turkey and left out celery and mushrooms. Added fresh green beans, which overpowered the flavor, so I doubled the tomato paste and vinegar and it balanced it well. Will probably do peas instead of green beans next time and can't wait to try it with mushrooms! Thanks for a keeper."
"Excellent soup! We've made it a few different ways and our favorite is using the Rescued Turkey Stock as the broth coupled with browned ground turkey in canola oil. We definitely love alot of barley so we add 1 cup. Absolutely delicious! Thank you for a real keeper recipe - especially on a cold rainy day like today."
"Excellent soup recipe. It is just how you want your turkey soup to taste. The only thing I changed is that I cook my barley separately so it does not soak up the broth. Then I add it to each individual bowl of soup and you have just the amount of barley you want."
"We were pretty tired of turkey but had to use up the rest of it. This soup was soooo good that we didn't even mention how tired we were of turkey. I only had 4 cups of turkey stock so I added 4 cups of water. It was a little too salty for my taste so I added another two cups of water. MMMMM. GREAT SOUP. Thanx for posting."
