We left out the bay leaf, since we didn't have any right off. I caught 2 large snapping turtles, which are NOT endangered, cleaned them and made this. The hardest part of snapping turtles is the cleaning process. We thought the turtle tasted like alligator, which is also delicious, and had used this recipe for alligator before, so, the turtle was just as easy... ~Y

We haven't had turtle soup for years. After printing this recipe, my husband made it & found it was simple to make. We didn't have tomato puree so substituted tomato sauce which worked fine. The lemon juice offsets the sweetness of the turtle. We liked it.
Where can I get turtle meat?
