This recipe makes a tangy flavor-filled meaty soup that is a great way to use what is left of the Thanksgiving Bird after the family carnivores are finished with it. I have been developing this recipe since late 2001 when I lost my job right after the 9/11 disaster and had too much time on my hands. This stew has now become a family favorite. Very low fat and nutritious, it makes for a complete meal. It is not suited as a side dish to a main course.
