    MB..........this is the closest recipe I could find with your ingredients. I'm sure you could replace the partridge (which I know I would!) with turkey and then add your condensed tomato soup to it. I found it on this website: http://www.wordplay.com/cuisine/archive.html

    PARTRIDGE SOUP



    * 1 lb. of salt beef
    * 1 or 2 partridge
    * 1 diced turnip
    * 2 diced carrots
    * 1 finely chopped onion
    * 1/2 cup of rice

    Fill soup pot almost full with hot water. Cut salt beef into 1" cubes. Cut partridge into small pieces. Add salt beef and partridge to water. Cook for about 1 1/2 hours. Add diced carrots and turnip and cook for 10 minutes. Add rice and onions an cook for 20 minutes more. Serve hot.

    oooh yes! definately replace the partridge with turkey, the recipe sounds good and simple. Apparently the salt beef makes the world of difference for flavouring,,,I've never used it in anything. I did try and seach for recipes but never came close,,,thank you

    Mudder, I have never had salt beef. Salt pork, but not salt beef. Is this something sold in the colder or northern regions?
    I have tried some soups made with salt pork that were similar to chowder and very good. Enjoy your soup. I would like to try it and will try it if I should ever see it down this way...

    TexAnn - I have no idea, I've never used it. However, you could ask your butcher or perhaps substitute salt pork.

    Here's some info I found. You could substitute corned beef (not an exact substitute but closer than pork). Don't use the canned corn beef - get the brisket

    Salt-cured meat or salted meat, for example ham, bacon, or kippered herring, is meat or fish preserved or cured by salt or brine. Beef jerky also is involved in salt preservation. Salt beef was a staple of the diet of the Royal Navy. Salted meat and fish are commonly eaten as a staple of the diet in North Africa, Southern China, and in the Arctic where they are associated with nasopharyngeal cancer caused by infection by the Epstein-Barr Virus. One study hypothesizes that a covector is anaerobic bacteria found in salted fish.[1]

    Salt inhibits the growth of microorganisms by drawing water out of microbial cells through osmosis. Concentrations of salt up to 20% are required to kill most species of unwanted bacteria. Smoking, often used in the process of curing meat, adds chemicals to the surface of meat that reduce the concentration of salt required.

    'Salt beef' in the UK and Commonwealth as a cured and boiled foodstuff is sometimes known as 'Corned beef' elsewhere, though traditional salt beef is different in taste and preparation. The use of the term corned comes from the fact that the Middle English word corn could refer to grains of salt as well as cereal grains.

    Interesting thread...anyone seeing salt beef show up in their grocery or speciality stores?

    Or anyone make one of these recipes using some corned beef bisket or turkey?
