Boil turtle meat until tender; reduce stock and clarify. Add ingredients
for stock pot. To stock pot add carrots, onions, celery, Burgundy, and
Povirade sauce. Tighten with gelatin. This recipe will yield approximately
10 gallons. Under refrigeration, the soup will hold for several weeks.

Well, I hope this recipe helps in the use of turtles, though I suspect you
will have to have a very large family or like turtle soup a lot, or scale
the recipe to a more manageable quantity.
