  3. Simmer, covered, for about 2 ½ hours.
  4. Remove carcass from pot. Cool soup in the refrigerator (hint: divide soup into smaller, shallower containers for quicker cooling).

  6. After soup has cooled, skim off fat from top. Return soup to pot.
  7. Add turkey meat to skimmed soup, along with herbs and spices.

Instructions
  1. To prepare the stew: Place chicken, onion, carrot, celery, salt, black pepper, cloves, bay leaf, and water in a large pot. Heat to boiling; cover and reduce heat to simmer. Cook for about 30 minutes, until chicken is tender.
  2. Remove chicken and vegetables from broth. Set aside.
  3. Strain broth and skim fat; measure and, if necessary, add water to make 3 cups liquid. Set aside 1 cup (see next step), and return the rest of the broth to the pot.
  4. Mix cornstarch with 1 cup cooled broth by shaking vigorously in a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Pour the mixture into the pot.
  5. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture comes to a boil and is thickened.
  6. Add the basil, peas, and reserved vegetables to the pot; stir to combine. Add chicken, and heat slowly to boiling while preparing cornmeal dumplings.
  7. To prepare the dumplings: Sift together cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and salt into a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together the milk and oil.
  8. Add milk mixture all at once to the dry ingredients; stir just enough to moisten the flour and evenly distribute the liquid. Dough will be soft.
  9. Drop by full tablespoons on top of the stew. Cover tightly; heat to boiling. Reduce heat (do not lift cover) to simmering, and steam for about 20 minutes.
