You can cook up a chicken or turkey carcass, or add stock and leftover turkey. Great way to end the Thanksgiving or Christmas turkey. I lost this recipe and spent two months searching for it. When it fell out of an unexpected book, I was thrilled and made the soup right away. If you like barley and mushrooms, you will love this soup.
