How to Make Turkey Vegetable Soup with Barley


  1. Place turkey bones in a large pot and cover with water. Simmer at least an hour until meat is falling off the bones. Strain, reserving broth. Put broth in the fridge a few hours or overnight to make any fat rise to the top to be skimmed off.
  2. After it has cooled, pick meat off the bones, discarding bones. Skim fat off the top of broth and reheat. Add veggies, barley and turkey.
  3. Simmer around an hour or until barley and vegetables are cooked through. Season to taste.
