  1. Homemade Turkey Soup

  2. You can make the most of even the smallest pieces of leftover meat on your holiday turkey. I simmer the bones to get the rich flavor, then easily remove any meat that remains. I add rice, vegetables and cream soup for a hearty soup that's tasty and economical. —June Sangrey, Manheim, Pennsylvania
