A turkey soup I had as a teenager still lingers. It’s that soup I want to recreate every year.
I was visiting my roommate in Pennsylvania and the recipe was from her grandmother. She said the secret was John Cope’s Toasted Sweet Dried Corn, a Pennsylvania Dutch ingredient. Tabby sometimes sends me the corn but this year I found it at Zingerman’s. So I am ready for my favorite Thanksgiving dish–turkey soup. And because turkey and corn, in my mind, requires chile as a third muskateer, I always add some dried hot chiles to my soup.
