|Turkey carcass||1 (Of 1 Cooked Turkey)|
|Leftover chestnut stuffing/6 tablespoons canned chestnut puree||4 Tablespoon (Add More, If Needed)|
|Onions||2 , sliced|

Remove remaining chestnut stuffing from cold turkey; reserve.
Remove turkey meat that can be used as garnish.
Break up carcass; put into large pan with onions, carrots, celery, and herbs.
Cover with water; simmer until well flavored.
Avoid boiling hard; this makes stock cloudy.
Put chestnut stuffing into electric blender or food processor with cup of turkey stock; blend until smooth.
Turn into pan; add 4 cups stock, seasoning, and turkey meat.
Cook together a few minutes.
If the soup is too thin, blend butter and flour together to make paste; add to soup in small pieces.
Stir until thickened.
Bring to boil.
