The recipe for the Dukakis family turkey soup


How to make the Dukakis turkey soup, in the words of Michael Dukakis:

“Take the carcass, stick it in the pot. Cover it with water. Quarter an onion and toss that in. Add lots of salt and pepper. Bring it to a boil. And then simmer it for three hours. Very important. If you go three and a half, even better. Let it cool. Take the bones out. Clean whatever meat is on the bones, put it back in the soup. Toss in a handful of rice. Somewhere between half a cup and a cup of rice. Add whatever vegetables you’ve got. Peas are good. Carrots are good. Heat it up again. And then enjoy.”
