Robin's notes for this recipe:
I am posting this recipe for a club member that requested a Turkey Soup. I hope you like this one version, and I think that it will be delicious, Beth.

P.S. If you don't like Tarragon as a herb, you can substitute fresh Thyme and Parley for a fresher
taste. Also, another member, Beth, added peas and potatoes to the soup...Just a consideration...
Make it Your Way...

Mise en place your onion, carrot, and celery. Melt the butter in a large saucepan and fry the onion for 3 minutes.
Add the cooked turkey to the pan with 1/2 pint of the chicken stock. Add the bay leaf to soup.
Bring the soup to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Allow to cool some, and then pour the remaining stock into soup. Add the cream. and remove from heat so it does not scald.
Remove bay leaf. Next. salt and pepper to taste.
Add the chopped tarragon. Garnish with a small sprig of tarragon and serve with croutons

Well, I am definitely printing this off because it contains turkey. Thanks for posting it Robin. Oh, by the way, Papillotte is in the works.
