Chicken Soup V (M, KLP, TNT)
Source: Self
Serves: 12

2 large bottles of mineral water (each 1.5 Liters)
1 chicken, cut into 8 parts, inner parts discarded
2-3 turkey wings
1 bunch each parsley, dill, celery (both root and leaves)
4 carrots
2-3 leeks
1 slice of pumpkin about 1kg (2 lb.)
4 sweet potatoes
2-3 teaspoons chopped garlic
Juice from 2 lemons

Wash all vegetables well by immersing in water to remove grains of sand. Open leeks and wash well the insides.

Do not chop parsley and dill. Peel and cut to 1/2" cubes all other vegetables and cut carrots and leeks to rounds. Peel and cut celery root. Do not chop leaves of celery.

In a large pot, place on bottom bunches of parsley and dill. Arrange on top celery leaves. On top of leaves arrange chicken and turkey. On top, arrange other vegetables.

On top, spread chopped garlic. Add if desired salt and pepper.

Pour bottles of water on top.

Bring to boil, then simmer for about 1-1/2 hours.

Just before serving add only lemon juice.

Poster's Notes:
1. Chicken can be served with soup. However I prefer to use it from chicken fruit salads.
2. If made one day ahead, the fat in the soup can be trimmed.
3. Sometimes I use the breast of the chicken for other dishes, since in the soup it can dry out. One can add instead of, or besides the turkey, bones of meat.
