This is how I take care of the turkey carcass. But you can make this soup by following the directions and using 12 cups of chicken broth with 1/2 teaspoon of poulty seasoning. You can freeze the carcass and make the broth when convenient for you.

jackwholland 2 months agoGreat soup, and so easy..Thank you for the recipe. I added 2 handfuls of rice instead of noodles (no likee in soup). Add single cream or milk if you want 'Cream of ...)
smatthews24 3 months agoDelish. My husband and I really enjoyed this. I added a half cup of rice instead of noodles. Good way to use left over Turkey.
joyleigh 9 months agoI made this today:) I added fresh chopped dill and parsley. Lemon juice and tobasco to taste. 1 can of tomato juice. A dash of ketchup. I used white long grain rice... about 2 cups. No noodles. Next time I will also add 1 cup of white wine and 1 green pepper. I didn't have any in stock in my kitchen...( my dad was a chef in the coastguard... so I intertwined his turkey soup recipe). It came out fantastic. I notice most turkey soup recipes do not say to use cheesecloth when making the broth with the carcuss.... I recommend doing so! No bones will fall into the broth. I will definitely be making this yummy soup again!!!
kitchenstadium 11 month agoThis was quite good, and easy to flavour to your own tastes. I added chunks of potato, whole wheat macaroni and a variety of spices.
