Just like Thanksgiving, Christmas is planning. Hopefully you have all that done. If you saved your turkey bones from Thanksgiving, here is a great recipe.
In a large pot take all your turkey bones and water, and boil several hours or simmer all day. After the meat has come off the bones, take the bones out. Strain out the meat, and put in a pot and add the left over broth until you have enough for your family. The remaining broth can be saved or frozen for later use.
Add carrots, celery and potatoes to taste. Since the soup has been well cooked all ready you just need to heat it long enough for the vegetables to cook. Fifteen minutes before serving, add from 1/4 to 1 cup of rice depending on how much soup you made. Five minutes before serving you can add either a big handful of cilantro for a more Mexican taste, or poultry seasoning. Salt and pepper to taste. This is what we will start our Sabbath meal with Saturday night.
