HOMEMADE TURKEY SOUP

This popular soup uses a "quick cool down" that lets you skim the fat right off the top—making it even healthier.

Yield: 16 servings (about 4 quarts of soup)

6 lb turkey breast with bones (with at least 2 C meat)
2 medium onions
3 stalks celery
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
1/2 tsp dried sage
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried marjoram
1/2 tsp dried tarragon
1/2 tsp salt
to taste black pepper
1/2 lb Italian pastina or pasta


1. Place turkey breast in large 6-quart pot. Cover with water until at least three-quarters full.

2. Peel onions, cut into large pieces, and add to pot. Wash celery stalks, slice, and add to pot.

3. Simmer covered for about 21/2 hours.

4. Remove carcass from pot. Divide soup into smaller, shallower containers for quick cooling in refrigerator.

5. After cooling, skim off fat.

6. While soup cools, remove remaining meat from turkey carcass. Cut into pieces.

7. Add turkey meat to skimmed soup, along with herbs and spices.

8. Bring to boil and add pastina. Continue cooking on low boil for about 20 minutes, until pastina is done. Serve at once or refrigerate for later reheating.
