This is a take on the famous gumbo created by Chef Paul Prudhomme. The secret to making this flavorful stock is to use a big stewing hen (you can substitute two smaller chickens if you would prefer). Use at least 6 pounds of chicken so that the stock is very rich. Good stock makes good gumbo!

Turkey Gumbo is usually made from the broth you make from the leftover turkey after carving it up on a holiday. Never throw it away! If you don't make gumbo the next day, you can always save it in your freezer.

Duck and wild mushrooms are the perfect partners in this rich, earthy gumbo. Should you happen to have a duck hunter in your family, feel free to subsitute an equal weight of wild ducks for truly deep duck flavor.
