Turkey Soup for the Slow Cooker

Turkey Soup for the Slow Cooker

Ready in 4 hours

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.

"We had some left over turkey tenderloin so we cubed it up and added two potatoes and at the very end, threw in some kale on top. The result was incredible! I actually looked forward to leftovers the next day!nthanks so much for this posting."

Great 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 ...)

Delish. My husband and I really enjoyed this. I added a half cup of rice instead of noodles. Good way to use left over Turkey.

I 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!!!

This was quite good, and easy to flavour to your own tastes. I added chunks of potato, whole wheat macaroni and a variety of spices.
