We love to swap citrus-based recipes. Here are some all-time favorites of ours, directly from our groves (and our grandmas).

Turkey Soup

Years ago, we made this tasty soup from post-Thanksgiving Day turkey. But we loved it so much that we started roasting turkey just to make the soup.

Turkey Soup


  • 4 & 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon crushed thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup packaged dried small-shell macaroni
  • One 16-ounce package frozen mixed vegetables
  • 2 cups chopped turkey (chicken may be substituted)
  • 2 cups Florida’s Natural® Orange Juice
  • Orange slices, halved (optional)
  • Herb sprigs (optional)


  1. In a large saucepan, combine broth, water, thyme and pepper.
  2. Bring to a boil and stir in macaroni.
  3. Return to boiling, reduce heat and boil gently, uncovered, for 3 minutes.
  4. Stir in vegetables; return to a boil.
  5. Boil gently, uncovered, for 5-7 minutes, or until vegetables and pasta are tender.
  6. Stir in turkey and orange juice, heat through.
  7. If desired, garnish with orange slices and herb sprigs.
