Ground turkey is available most weeks and as are turnips of late.  Here’s a recipe for Bacon-Turkey Soup which uses both:

1/3 cup butter
1 pound ground turkey
3/4 cup sliced or diced onions
10 strips of bacon cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 Tbsp fennel seeds
1 3/4 cups chicken or turkey broth
3 medium turnips, cubed
1/4 cup white cooking wine or white grape juice
1 Tbsp. prepared yellow mustard
4 sprigs fresh thyme or 2 tsp. dried
1/2 cup full fat coconut milk
2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp. unflavored gelatin

Heat butter (or lard) in a large saucepan over medium heat.  Once melted, add the bacon and turkey and cook, breaking into pieces as it browns. Add onions and fennel and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes until aromatic.

Add the broth, turnips, wine, mustard and thyme.  Cover and bring to a boil.  Turn heat down and simmer mixture until meat and turnips are tender, 1/2 hour or more.

Remove the thyme sprigs (if using) and add the coconut milk vinegar and gelatin.  Simmer for another 10 minutes.  Enjoy!
