How to make it
- You can do this one of two ways: either make the stock first, strain the stock for bones, break up the chicken, and then add all of the soup ingredients - or throw it all together in one large pot and cook it all together. I like the second method - but the only drawback is that there will be small bones on the carcass that you will have to find before serving (or tell your guests to look out for) and you still have to break apart the chicken.
- Cooking time for stock alone: Cook in your pot with lid on on low heat until the chicken comes cleanly off of the bones (about two-three hours) I will cook mine for longer, because I really want the flavor of the bones (the marrow) to come out.
- Cooking time for soup alone: Cook in stock on low until the potatoes, carrots, and turnips are tender and cuttable with a spoon.(about two hours).
- Cooking time for the whole shabang: About five to six hours, heat on low, lid on, open periodically to break apart chicken and fish out bones you see, and to let the smell waffle through the house.
- Optional: Put greens (about three leaves sliced up) in for the last half an hour. I love it , but not everyone will be a big fan of this.
- Serve with warm bread to soak up the juice.

Sounds like this would cure all that ails you. I am always called upon when some one is sick in the family to make chicken soup. You have expanded my horizons, I like the addition of the turnips, green beans, and some of the spices you have added tha...moregagagrits in Irmo loved it
