Jook is a great way

to use up your left over turkey. Provide some home made biscuits with the jook for a filling after-holiday treat.

Brought to Hawaii by Chinese immigrants, this is a Chinese rice soup. Here is a tasty recipe that is easy and delicious.

This recipe will serve about eight.

1 turkey carcass
3 quarts of water
1 cup of rice, washed
1 small piece of ginger root, crushed
1 Tbsp salt
4 green onions, chopped
1 bunch of Chinese parsley, chopped (Cilantro)

Simmer turkey and water in a large pot until turkey falls off the bones.

Strain into another pot to remove small bones. Reserve turkey meat.

Add water to broth to make 3 quarts since some water simmered away.

Add meat, rice and ginger root to broth. Bring to a boil, then simmer about 1 hour.Stir it occasionally.

Add salt, green onion and cilantro just before serving.

Note: This soup just doesn't taste as good without cilantro.
