Williamsburg Inn

Many years ago my husband and I visited the lovely Williamsburg Inn Resort & Hotel. We had a marvelous 4 night stay. We both enjoy visiting colonial Williamsburg, it’s such a trip back in time and we like the slower pace.

We especially enjoyed the accommodations and service we had at the inn and especially the dining. The Regency dining room is lovely and the food was spectacular.

This was in particular one of my favorite appetizers, the Williamsburg Inn Turkey Soup. For me it’s a no-brainer.  Once you add half and half to anything and it’s better, and this delicious soup is a perfect example.

1 turkey carcass
4 qts. water
3 lg. onions, chopped
3 stalks celery, chopped
2 lg. carrots, chopped
1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning, if desired
1/4 c. uncooked rice
1 c. butter
1 1/2 c. flour
1 pt. half & half
3 c. diced & cooked turkey
Salt & pepper

In large kettle, cook turkey carcass with water to make 3 quarts stock. Remove bones, reserve meat for soup, strain stock, set aside.In saucepan, combine onions, celery, carrots, rice and 1 quart of the stocks. Cook for 20 minutes, set aside. In large soup kettle, melt butter, blend in flour and heat until bubbly. Add half and half and remaining 2 quarts stock to butter-flour mixture. Cook and stir until bubbly. Stir in reserved vegetable mixture, turkey, seasoning. Heat slowly to serving temperature. This soup freezes well.
