  3. Skim off fat. Remove meat from bones; dice and return to stock along with carrots, turnips, celery, onion and barley. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer about 1 hour or until vegetables and barley are tender. Season to taste.

Used different ingredients. This ended up very tasty, with only a few changes. I put in a stock cube when it ended up being very bland. I think that if the bones were roasted as I have seen in other recipes, it would have worked more to my taste. But the basic soup was delicious! - 24 Jul 2008
